Create an itinerary including 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.

  • Amazing town with the Castle above - straight out of a fairytale book. Unchanged since the 1500's and they still have live Bears in the moat.

  • The place is lovely but it’s inconceivable that after all this time they still have bears in captivity. There is no need to keep wild animals in such terrible conditions. Hope they can revert it as...

  • It is a place must to see. Do not miss to visit the castle. It is stunning. From the castle there is a great view to the city. Have in mind that on Monday is closed. Take a walk on the streets and eat in small local restaurants to feel the atmosphere of Cesky Krumlov.
  • Nice from outside. Inside we couldn't go because the lazy employees weren't in the mood of working. They closed it like at 3 PM and the next day they didn't even know the time of reopening. I envy their relaxed lives haha
