Beauty and Beast castle
Dec 2019
Walking around this castle and the surrounding grounds is a joy. The castle reminded us of Beauty and the Beast and we were enchanted.

The walk up to castle from the small town is enjoyable. The castle itself is suitably impressive and the walk around the grounds back down to the town was very enjoyable.

A visit is recommended if you are in the area.

Brutal castle
Sep 2020 • Couples
Not the usual delicate and sweet castle, a strong exemplar of architecture with good walks and an eye candy structure. Good stop for a maybe 1 hour.

The Rooms Inside are Amazing
Sep 2020 • Couples
You have to join a tour to see inside and there are 4 to choose from, each showing a different part of the castle. We did Tour 1 which is called the Representation Rooms and lasted around an hour. We couldn't understand why 4 tours are necessary until we got inside and there is so much detail and so much to see that it was difficult to take it all in. It is full of intricately panelled wood, priceless art, glass and rugs and beautiful 14th - 16th century stained glass windows. I would have liked to spend a bit more time in each room, but the tour moved quickly. No photos are allowed and we did a Czech tour with a handout in English explaining what to look at with some of the history. English tours are available, but we had missed them.

We looked for some spots around Český Krumlov and decided to go to Hluboka. Amazing castle definitly worth to go there. After visiting the castle itself we took a walk through the nice park. Perfect place!

Don't miss to go up the tower. Great view over the area!

Tired of the city? Come to Hluboká Castle.
Aug 2020
The Hluboká Castle is conveniently located 10 km from České Budějovice, thus making it a great place for one day trips.

It is apparent the village of Hluboká nad Vltavou is a prospering place so summer 2020 has seen it full of reconstruction works. Also, be aware this place is very popular so you may expect crowds.

You can either walk from the central parking place or take a train up to the castle. I suggest walking, you can enjoy the picturesque streets better. The walk is 15 minutes tops. However, families with children will appreciate the opportunity not to go on foot.

When you have made it to the top you can have a guided tour of the inside of the castle and enjoy the beautiful park and admire the views of the castle at your own pace. Suitable for all ages.

When in South Bohemia, do give this castle a go. You do not have to be a history or architecture enthusiast to enjoy this place.

Beautiful palace
Aug 2020 • Family
Beautiful place, the tour with guide was very interesting and the walk in the gardens is very nice. The gardens are open till 11 pm, we went there around 8 pm and even though in the day the palace is packed, the gardens were empty in the evening.

Truly brilliant experience
Jun 2020 • Couples
This castle is one of the most beautiful in Czech republic! It's located in Hluboka nad Vltavou city, and you can easily reach it using public transport from České Budějovice (bus stop Hlb. Nad Vltavou, pod kostelem). Just be careful because Google doesn't really work here and it doesn't provide good information on how to get there.
Castle itself is amazing! Exterior's fantastic. You get the feeling of fairy tale especially in castle backyard garden!
We didn't go inside, but enjoyed the huge park, lakes, and the garden!
Must visit ❤
