I loved this castle and our tour. It was in Czech but I followed along with an english brochure (like a paper audiotape). Not crowded. Great history. And well furnished. Instead of feeling like a museum, it felt as if I was visiting a friends...More

The castle and chateau complex is quite extensive; the guided tour takes up to 2 hours and there are many staircases to reckon with so the tour is not for everyone. However, if you have the time and feel fit it is well worth the...More

Definitely one of the biggest and most beautiful castles in the region. Laid off the main road, at the hill near the town of Frydlant, it is a relatively easily accessible establishment if you go there by car. The car park is close to the...More

The castle is very beautiful: both the architecture and interior are worth paying attention to. I strongly recommend a visit with the guide as it helps you to fully discover the castle and its history. The visit isn't cheap but it's worth its price as...More

Toured with my wife and toddler. Guide was patient. Views were stunning. Tour lasts two hours, which was too much for a toddler. But they let us out halfway.
