The castle is quite small but you can spend there nice hours by attending two optional guided tours each about 30min or just walk around yourself. From top of black tower is wonderful view to city.

In the past it was a big castle. To this day, only the torso of the once magnificent palace, the defensive Black Tower and, above all, the unique double Romanesque-Gothic chapel has been preserved. Around 1450, the alchemist Zikmund Wann worked at Cheb Castle and you can see his workshop in the castle chapel. The Mill Tower houses an exhibition of historical costumes from the 9th to the 18th century. Like many other castles, this one has its ghost. He is the Duke Wallenstein, who was killed not far from here. According to legend, a carriage with the spirit of Duke Wallenstein leaves the castle gate every midnight, accompanied by several riders. But because I visited the castle during day and not at midnight, I didn't see the ghost and I can't say that it exists. :) In any case, I recommend a visit of the Cheb Castle, it's worth it. Admission is 100,- CZK per adult.…

I went year and years ago and am now writing this as part of Travel Tales. Worth reading. Czechoslovakia was a fasccinating country, Prague was gorgeous beyond belief and Karlovy Vary was like a fairyland.

Beautiful view down the park, interesting exhibition of torture instruments. Long history, nicely documented. You need about 30 minutes to see the place. Nice walk from the center of Cheb.

This location was truly a gem to visit. Not knowing all of the history in Cheb, it was nice to go in and read the signs, and see the set up to their Hrad. The castle walls have stood the test of time.
