“A very interesting afternoon”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed November 25, 2012

We bought the most expensive ticket to enable us to visit every part of the castle, the wedding dress exhibition was a bit less than scintillating but the printed material meant that the rest of the exhibitions were really interesting (though a translation of the exhibits in the cases would have been nice) The fairy tale artwork was lovely-it would have been nice to have been able to buy prints. And the staff on the top floor (noteably the chap at the mentioned art exhibition) were friendly and helpful and though their English was limited, they all did as much as they could to show us around. Unfortunately we spent so long in the main castle, we did not have time to go to the casemates which we were really disappointed about. The location is lovely too, we spent an hour or so walking around the grounds on a sunny day and there were several other people making the most of the situation. Well worth a visit-the bells playing Elvis are an unusual touch!

“Nice place to visit”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed November 24, 2012

The Spilberk Castle is a nice attraction to visit in Brno. It requires a nice walk up to the hill. From the hill you also have a nice view over Brno. We did not go inside the castle as it was closed at the time we visited.

“Lovely walk”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed November 15, 2012

The Spilberk Park around the castle has many great views of Brno, and the castle itself is impressive. It is easy to see why it was so forbidding for invaders. It was worth walking around the castle grounds even without paying to see the exhibitions.
