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.

The castle is special on its own as the type is unique. On the top of that the tower offers nice views of the town. Together with the old square it makes a nice afternoon trip.

It was very lovely to see. It's not so large that young children will lose interest. The park outside is nice to walk around afterwards for the kids.

My Czech friend and I arrived at 16:20. The man at the front desk spoke most unintelligibly in a low, muffled voice, and got irritated when he was not understood straight away. He was downright rude, to be exact. He said that there were no...More
