It's a bit of as not up hill walk (so be ready for that) but the views of Brno from up here are fantastic. The exhibit's aren't open on Monday which unfortunately is when I was there. There is an info board that can provide useful info about the history of the castle in a few languages including English and German

We travelled in autumn and although a steep walk up the view from the top is worth it! We only visited the first floor of the castle but it was interesting to look at and get some history. Even to just look around the outside and the surrounding park is worth it though. The leaves were a beautiful colour and made for some lovely pictures!

Very steep but worth the views from the top. Not open all year round but attracts lots of visitors daily, take some water with you and rest on the way up.

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.
