“Nice place to visit”
Reviewed November 24, 2012

The Spilberk Castle is a nice attraction to visit in Brno. It requires a nice walk up to the hill. From the hill you also have a nice view over Brno. We did not go inside the castle as it was closed at the time we visited.

“Lovely walk”
Reviewed November 15, 2012

The Spilberk Park around the castle has many great views of Brno, and the castle itself is impressive. It is easy to see why it was so forbidding for invaders. It was worth walking around the castle grounds even without paying to see the exhibitions.

“Brno must see”
Reviewed October 14, 2012

The castle is in very good shape, has been renewed with EU funding. We paid 250CZK/head for the whole tour including all exhibitions. Most interesting exhibitions (i believe they are fixed) is about the history of the castle and Brno. There were others about fireworks, weddings, Geisha's & Samurais, paintings and carpets. These were not so good in comparison, maybe just because Brno's and Spilberk's history are so interesting.

Very touching were the letters of Jews who were sentenced to death and were allowed 1 letter to their beloved ones.

The whole tour had a recommended length of 3.5 hours. We took longer, some might do it in a much shorter time, depending how much you want to read about everything.

“Interesting castle”
Reviewed September 23, 2012

They had a very good Japanese exhibition we enjoyed a lot. Also some interesting paintings and some modern glass. Did not have time to see all of the historical stuff about the castle. I think they vary the exhibitions so there is usually something different to see.

“Trip visit to Spilberk Castle”
Reviewed September 4, 2012

Old castle, with intersting expositions but no guides in English. Information is avalable only on hard copy, but still includes a lot. If you are in Brno it worth to go and spent 2-3 hoursa to see it.
