Trip Planner: Europe / Czech Republic / Bohemia / South Bohemian Region / Cesky Krumlov / Cesky Krumlov Castle
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.

Cesky Krumlov Castle reviews
Visited the grounds of the castle - the inside was not open. I believe that part of the castle is still used for offices and such. Beautifully preserved area around the castle with lots of shops... more »
Very interesting tour of the town and castle. The place was beautiful and it had lots of interesting stories. The tour guide made the difference more »
This is a beautiful castle in a beautiful town. I really enjoyed walking through the castle grounds. What was most spectacular though was the castle baroque theatre. I recommend booking tickets to visit the theatre online because there is a limit to the number of people who are allowed to access it daily. The views the from castle are also another reason to visit.
One of the nicest castle in the Czech Republic, very romantic baroque/gothic style. Gardens are large and relaxing for walk or just chill. Views to the old town are breathtaking! Unfortunately too many tourists around. You can take two tours around the castle, or just visit the main tower. Also the live bear is living nearby at the entrance.
