We arrived from our boat on the Danube river having driven across the border and through the Czech countryside. The Castle towers over the town and offers amazing views of the Vitava river. The formal gardens are lovely to wander around, full of spring flowers on our visit. Make sure you climb the bell tower, quite an experience but well... More

We arrived at the castle for the first English tour of the day at 9.30 am and it was fabulous as there were only 4 of us so it felt very personalised and special . We had a wonderful guide whose English was perfect and she made the tour so interesting and we were able to ask questions and so... More

I am not sure I could say anything about this castle that hasn't already been said. Certainly worth the price of admission to walk through the various rooms inside, but even from the courtyards this is a beautiful building and the history (if told by a Czech) is very entertaining!

While we didn't go inside, the building is stunning, set atop a hillside with a perfect medieval courtyard. However, we were somewhat put off by the bear that seemed very lonely, neglected and without any entertainment, plodding around the moat like an exhibition. This was a real shame and was my lasting impression of the place: it's something that we... More

Very confused by the separate ticket areas and meeting area for the tour. In winter only the one tour of the castle route. The tower is fun but the stairs are old and only rope on the walkway up but the view is worth it. Did the tour and was good and explained a lot would of been nice to... More

First about the place Český Krumlov where the castle is located is a town that preserves the old world charm. I felt relaxed being here.The castle is big and beautiful. So pack your walking shoes as one needs to walk and explore the beautiful castle.

There are not a lot of places to visit in this tiny town and for sure the castle is the most visited attraction. The castle offer guided tours which is very informative and make the visit more interesting. The interior of the castle by itself it is not the most surprising castle I have visited but with the guide it... More

It’s a spread out castle complex that has areas that can be accessed by the public for free. We didn’t go inside the section that requires admission ticket, but we were happy with just exploring the outside compound. We visited during Christmas holiday 2016. It was cold, but the sun was out so it was a pleasant walk in the... More

The town of Cesky Krumlov looks like it's right out of a fairytale and the castle is the "Cherry on Top. A beautiful castle in a beautiful city. The castle is beautifully designed and well taken care of. Amazing views of the city from wherever you're at. Very medieval feel and cool place to get lost and discover. It gets... More

It is a lovely 14th-century with Baroque add-ons type of building. Lots of stairs, and lots of uneven pavement. Generally, it's pretty hard on the feet and knees. Personally, I was more taken with the sgraffito and painting on the exterior and in the courtyards, than I was with the interior decor - and you can visit that far for... More
