It was my second visit of this castle. I was here before the renovation and recently during time, when the castle is under renovation. Therefore there was open only part of the castle for public: a tower, a chapel and an exhibition about nature and animals. Although I could see only small part of the interiors, I was not dissapointed at all. The exhibition was very nice and included a lot of interesting activities not only for kids. There were new stairs in the tower, so it was comfortable to climb to the top there. Overall it was a lovely visit and I'll be definitely back after renovation is over.…

Driving through the Javorice Forest on the outskirts of Telc, looking for the highest topographical point in the area - which eluded our efforts - we accidentally came across a small signpost directing us to this compact medieval fortress in a clearing on a hilltop, with a commanding view of the countryside. This structure was in all probability the fiefdom of some minor earl who was tasked with protecting his lord's realm. The fortress is dominated by a significantly high watchtower, accessed by a circular internal staircase which could prove a challenge to the mobility-impaired, but is well worth the effort as the views from the top floor embrasures are great! Refreshments are sold on the premises and a small enclosure served by a seating area hints at some form of medieval exhibitionism, such as swordsmanship, during the high season. En route to this castle, about a kilometer down the track, one may examine the impressive remains of what was once the lordling's private game preserve, apparently stocked with deer and wild hogs, for his amusement - or table!…

Interesting castle out in the woods. Great views from the tower. There is a covered shelter just outside the castle that is great for a picnic lunch.

Nice place when travelling around Telc, Trest, Jihlava. It is visible that the castle is well taken care of, there is tourist "fast food" inside with beer and cold drinks, small parking place and many cycle tracks and foot trails around it. Definitely worh visiting.
