Cesky Krumlov Castle, Cesky Krumlov

Dominating the surrounding city from its location on a high rock promontory, Cesky Krumlov Castle is a medieval complex of about 40 buildings, situated around five courtyards and a vast park. Dating back to the middle of the 13th century, the complex covers a total area of about 7 hectares (17 acres). The castle's atmospheric storerooms house a collection of stone statues and sacred art, accrued over the centuries by the city's many rulers. You can stroll through the grounds on your own, but access to some of the interior sections is by guided tour only. Check the website for opening hours and available tour options before you make the trip. A visit to Cesky Krumlov Castle represents just the start of the adventure when you use our Cesky Krumlov online attractions planner to plot your vacation.

  • Very interesting place. It makes a great impression, looking from the center of the Old Town. The vast castle wall rises incredibly high above the streets and all the rest of the buildings.

  • Very well kept castle in a picturesque old town. Beautiful views of the old town from almost every part of the castle grounds. Was reasonably busy in March so must get overly busy towards the summer months. Everything seemed to be getting kept neat and tidy and well maintained.
  • Beautiful castle located in a lovely medieval-looking small town. I recommend coming during spring when it's not terribly crowded. Definitely recommend!
