“not much there”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed January 10, 2014

this is a restored ruin, you just see the walls that were recently done. The goats that are there are fun though.

“Spilberk alive!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed December 5, 2013

The castle is newly opened and full of exciting corners and exhibitions. Usually, there are a lot of small exhibitions from various fields, so mostly you just need to search. The summer offers Shakespeare theatre festival!

“Do Not Miss in Brno”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed November 25, 2013

This is the place you really should visit during your stay in Brno. Špilberk has a long and colorful history and you can see many from its last years in the building: the prison, the castle, the fortress. You can ejnoy great views on Brno and have something tasty in the café. There are also changing exhibits and festivals. The way up may be steep, but beautiful, especially in autumn.

“Great views ”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed November 13, 2013

It's a bit of as not up hill walk (so be ready for that) but the views of Brno from up here are fantastic. The exhibit's aren't open on Monday which unfortunately is when I was there. There is an info board that can provide useful info about the history of the castle in a few languages including English and German

“Beautiful grounds”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed November 3, 2013

We travelled in autumn and although a steep walk up the view from the top is worth it! We only visited the first floor of the castle but it was interesting to look at and get some history. Even to just look around the outside and the surrounding park is worth it though. The leaves were a beautiful colour and made for some lovely pictures!
