“Great idea for an afternoon stroll in the park!”
Reviewed September 6, 2013

You can walk all around the castle but if you want to explore the interior, you have to pay a large entrance fee (10 of 15 €/person!), we didn't pay it so I can't tell if it's worth it or not. You can get beautiful views of old town centre with dominant figure of Brno cathedral.

“Lots to see”
Reviewed August 14, 2013

The castle has lots to see with several excellent museums and galleries located in the main buildings.

At the time I visited it was in the middle of a heat wave with the mercury pushing 39C most days, so the cold, damp casemates below the castle were possibly the most gorgeous place in the city.

“Detailed history”
Reviewed August 3, 2013

The exhibitions within the castle are detailed and historically accurate. While some of the history is grim, there is also plenty to see from ancient and medieval times

“Time in the Špilberk Castle”
Reviewed July 31, 2013

Špilberk castle is one of two symbols of Brno. It is castle in the centre of Brno which is more famous as the heaviest prison which you can visit and to think about your offence. Also there is interesting exposition of art but if you don´t want to visit castle you can walk during forest park around castle with romantic arbour and pavillon and maybe you can meet your love.
