Although this is a fortress castle but it looks like a fairy-tale castle. There are several guided tours available. Many films have been made there. A car is essential to reach this place as is located in the middle of nowhere I was there a few times. Love it.

We had an one hour tour which was interesting. They had tours only in local language and we got an English text to follow. In general the communication was very difficult

Beautiful castle basically in the middle of nowhere. The trip you may find exhausting, but the reward is surprisingly good. The place is excellently taken care of, the route through the castle is interesting and the castle from outside looks just like out of fairy tale.

As we looked at our pictures of the castle we found out that it is a good idea to take them from far far away. Castle is very tall and the contrast against the rest of the village, or farm fields is just great. Also, we parked a car at the parking lot at the foot hills of the church,... More

The drive to Bouzov was beautiful, as was the castle. Great trip on a summers day if you are passing through the region.

We had trouble finding the place since the roads were torn up for repairs and the detours were not marked well, but it was worth the trouble. The castle is beautifully restored and gives a great impression of what life was like in the past. The guides don't speak English, so you get a written guide, you're not allowed to... More

The castle is beautiful from the first peek through the trees. As you drive up the hill, the impressive spires and windows make for great fairytale style photos. We chose the "Extensive Tour" which covers living quarters, guest rooms, dining room, office, even a bath. Takes about 80 minutes which flew by. There is also a "Knight Tour" which is... More

We had trouble locating the pay kiosk, but after that had to wait for the next tour - you cannot wander freely alone. Our guide had no English but we were given information sheets in English. It is certainly an interesting castle and well worth a visit. We were not impressed by the food outlet - take your own picnic.

Hrad Bouzov is a wonderfully restored Castle. Once ravaged by fire and time the Castles exterior as well as the interior have been painstakingly restored over decades to really bring this castle back to life. The rooms are also filled with many interesting artifacts. It really is a beautiful drive up to it as well as it perches atop a... More

So you're driving through the Czech country side, end up in the small village of Bouzov and then you see this fabulous castle. I've seen a lot of castle on my trip through Czech Republic. In my opinion, this one is the best. Very beautiful, very well kept, interesting tour (in Czech, but can be followed in English on paper).... More
