I bought "maxiticket" which included the visit of the castle, tower, gallery and sala terrena (330,- CZK). You can visit the interiors of the castle and the sala terrena only with a guide.

Climbing the tower is not difficult if you walk slowly. The stairs are comfortable, partly stone, partly wooden, spiral and straight. The view of the main square and the city is beautiful from the top.

Sala terrena is a space under the castle. There are three interesting halls and two grottos. Takeing pictures in this part of the castle is alowed.

The castle gallery contains 85 paintings from the 15th, 16th and 17th centuries. Among other things, you can see here the original painting of Titian (Tiziano Vecellio) "Apollo and Marsyas".

The castle itself is beautiful. All the rooms are simply gorgeous. I really liked the library with four big globes. There are 91.000 books in 35 languages in the castle.

The castle garden is huge. During stroll you can meet peacocks, there is a small animal corner with monkeys and many kinds of birds. The entrance to the garden is free.

We spent a lovely morning touring the zámek and the gallery. The tour of the ceremonial rooms is interesting and detailed. The gallery has an interesting collection of religious art but is not overwhleming. Climb the tower for views of the square and city.

After being at the Flower Garden the day before, the Podzamecká zahrada was a bit of a let down but made for a lovely spot for a walk.

The whole city is full of beautiful attractions. Chateau, gardens, churches and old town. You can spend here all day long on sightseeing.

"English tour" is in Czech language with you getting some badly translated texts to read by yourself. This was not mentioned when buying the tickets. Without any prior notice or sign or anything we were told we can't take pictures, but Czech people could take all the pictures they could take - what? They didn't put the lights on in most of the rooms. This place has a lot of potential, but the way it is run now, it is simply not acceptable.

Once the residence of the archbishops of Olomouc, this UNESCO-protected landmark and its gardens are Kroměříž’s top attractions. Its entry by guided tour only, the former is closed from November to March and open at the weekend in April and October (information available at http://www.zamek-kromeriz.cz/en/). But even if you can’t admire its beautiful interiors used as a stand-in for Vienna’s Hofburg in Oscar-winning film Amadeus (1984), do visit. The château garden, not to be confused with the English flower garden (Květná zahrada) famous for its rotunda 15 minutes away, remains open for free from 7 am everyday unless it’s raining heavily. Join locals for a leisurely walk around this stately garden in the morning when lighting of the Gothic palace is best.

The gardens behind the chateau offer free access and a great variety of flora and fauna. There are peacocks roaming free, as well as all kinds of animals in enclosures. There are formal flower beds as well as more free-growing trees and shrubs. The chateau itself can only be visited with a guided tour (for a fee) and it is well worth it. The tour we took was in Czech, but English-language written explanations were provided, so we could follow the explanations about each room. There's some interesting history attached to this place.

This is a large complex of museums, churches and gardens. Rather plan to stay minimum 3 hours and do not come late afternoon.
It is a wonderful baroq facility. You will feel atmosphere of tranquility and peace while inside. Really a must see when visiting this region.

Lovely building from outside and attractive renovated rooms. It is worth to climb the tower for best views of the old town.

Visited the town on the way back home. We planned to visit the Archbishop´s chateau only but were offered the tour containing also the view from the chateau tower / 206 steps up and 206 steps down/ and visit of the Flower garden. The interiors of the chateau are well mantained and there is lots to see.

Quite nice interiors, with beautiful two large halls and fantastic library. The rest of rooms and halls either just good or sometimes a little bit depressing. Most of paintings are very dark and sad, a lot of paintings taken off and put to the gallery. Of course, to see the gallery you must buy a separate ticket. Guide doesn't say anything interesting, using a lot of technical words and not catching too much attention. What I really don't like is that you must pay separately for every part of the castle. And tickets prices are not so low...
