This is a combination of a castle and chateau as the remants of the old Gothic castle that the Renaissance chateau are built upon are still visible. It's a sizable and imposing building that six different tour routes are offered for. We took a combination of the Renaissance and Gothic interiors tours. We took the Czech language tours as they are more available and cheaper, though tours are also offered in English and German. I decided to ask for English language accompanying texts and was surprised that I had to buy them. Normally, most chateaus and castles lend such texts out and you return them at the end of the tour. I was also surprised with how full of spelling and grammar errors the texts were. It really felt like they had simply used a computer based translation program to create the text rather than a competent human translator and proofreader. Once our tour began, it bacame quickly apparent that the deficiencies of my English language text were of little consequence. The young man who served as our guide on both tours left much to be desired as far as staying on subject was concerned. As our guide led us through a series of often stunning interiors, he often seemed to struggle for words and had a lot of trouble controlling the tone and rhytmn of his voice. It got quite irritating after a while. I overheard other members of our tour group complaining about the guide as well, some saying his grammar was attrocious. There is clearly a lot to see at this attraction and I do think it's worth making the trip to see it. Perhaps a different guide would have influenced me to give this place a "Very Good" rating rather than the "Average" rating that I did.…

Beautiful castle within the centre of Horšovský Týn. On a warm day you can cool off in the castle. So give it a go!

The Castle and Gardens are a nice place to visit and enjoy a day out, I especially like walking around the gardens as it is so peaceful and it's a good place for introspective thought and a place for solitude.

I visited the castle with my 6 year old son. We waited fot the castle tour only about 30 minutes. I can recommend the castle tour for small boys, because of the guns exposition. The whole tour was very nice and interested.
