Nice walk around grounds

We didn't go into the castle but the walk up from the old town and around the grounds was nice in a crisp sunny day. Good views over the town below.

It's a wonderful place, has a little bit of everything,some history, a bit of traditional art and a dash of modern art. Although, text on the wall describing the exhibits should also have an English version, so we don't have to carry around a translation prospect that's given to you at the entrance of every room. Other than that, a... More

It's a Royal Castle for the city Brno with casemates, and an extensive park. Many local use the park for walking and enjoying the city view. It is easily accessible from old town around 1km (15min walk). There is cafe you can sit inside and outside to enjoy some coffee and wine overlooking the awesome view of Brno city.

If you want to see all of Brno, climb mild hill. It is sorounded by charming park and affords the view of entire city. Interesting museum inside.

Spilberk Castle crowns a hill overlooking Brno. Its defensive walls are mainly of brick, while the castle is white with red-tiles roofs. There are a number of Austrian coats of arms carved in light gray stone on its walls, particularly at the entrance and in the courtyard. The castle contains administrative offices for the city. The views over Brno from... More

Impressive. Big and full of many exibitions. it is well maintained and really a lot to see. Just a pity that almost everything is n Czech only, with just some booklets in other languages for a generic decription, in each room.
