Long way up,rosarium,secret way to the church,possibly secret exit from castle under the river...amazing stories and lovely view. You gonna find everything in there.Great tour guides and funny. Best are the night tours with people wearing the clothes from centuries ago and the Rose garden lighten by torches.

Castle founded by Czech kings in 13th century as a fortress at the gate to kingdom, soon a city built around. Rebuild into a chateau by an influental family of Thun, guarding the vast territory of Elbe river valley, the sandstone cliffs and deep forests at the Czech-Sachsen border. Occupied by armies between 1920 and 1990, almost ruined, refurbished in 1990s into its original beauty and splendor. Have a smaller twin chateau on the other side of river, that in romantic style.

Děčín Castle is one of the dominant of Děčín. In my opinion, the most dominant feature is the Pasty's Wall (Pastýřská stěna) above Děčín (the photo is from the bus).

We came to Decin late, so cannot enter inside the castle.
But we entered the Rose Garden and the gardens on the opposite, and so also walked the gardens below the castle.
The rose garden definitely worth the money you pay for it - beautiful view to the city, and very large variety of rose species.

We were not very impressed with this palace. The guide only spoke Czech and while there was a handout in English in each room, it was very brief and could be read in a minute or two while the guide spoke for about 10 minutes. We had no idea what he was saying. Also, we had been told to meet the guide at the entrance to the courtyard which was where we waited, but when he had not arrived after 10 minutes (despite being told by another employee that we were in the right place), we went back to the ticket office and were redirected to the entrance to the palace. By that time, the guide had already taken the other visitors through three rooms so we were rushed through them without being given any time to even look at them. After that we were virtually ignored. Nice place but all we could do was look.

We visited the rooftop rose garden at sunset - the garden itself was lovely, as were the views it afforded over the town. Would highly recommend if you're in the area.

This is a very beautiful castle in very good condition, they have done a good job of keeping it the same way it was back in the days. Getting there is a long walk up so be ready for a steep climb up. The only negative was that the tour of the castle was done only in Czech language, thou I was given a tour guide book in English. Tour is from 3pm and ever half hour thereafter.

Even Decin is a nice small czech city, there are not too many things to visit here. The castle is one of them. A nice rose garden belongs to the castle, it's worth to visit it as well.

Didn't go inside the castle. But the outside, the gardens around it and especially the rose garden are beautiful! You can easily just wander around this place and sit down on one of the little benches. Nice place! Walk a little further to a very nice parc, with a view of the castle. Also very nice view from the bridge next to it and from the white restaurant on top of the hill accross from the castle.
