Would be better w/o the bears
Nov. 2021
I'd give Cesky Castle five stars if not for the fact that "they" keep two brown bears onsite (at the entrance/exit) because I don't see any purpose for the bears being there. (Yes, from days of yore, two bears were shield-bearers in the coat of arms of the ruling Rosenburg family, but it's 2021, not the 1600s, so it's pretty archaic).

As for the castle, you can walk a lot of it for free, and for a small fee (I forget now what it is) you can tour the museum and go up in the tower. The tower doesn't necessarily give you incredible views that you can't almost see from other vantage points, but the museum is well done and worth a walk through if you're interested in the history of the place.

Gorgeous Scenery from Every Angle
Oct. 2021
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. The restoration of the castle is beautiful.

Amazing views

Excellent views. We walked up but there appears to be parking, but does not seem to be wholly wheelchair accessible. Worth the short climb.

The Theater is a must see
Aug. 2021
I have traveled a lot in 40 years and seen many castles. Cesky Krumlov Castle is fairly good. But the theater there is an absolute gem that is not to be missed. One of only two preserved theaters of its era left in Europe. The new remodel was done 1766-68. Original props and costumes are still there and all the wooden effect- creating machinery. The tour is from both the audience and under the stage areas. Fascinating.

Incredible medieval stronghold

You can walk around the castle courtyards for free while to enter tower and museum you have to pay a small fee. The views are stunning and the castle itself is marvelous.

Amazing tour with an incredible guide!
Jul. 2021
The castle is really impressive and worth visiting simply for its stunning views and scenery. However, the tours are also totally worth checking out!

The first tour we did was for the baroque theatre. The tour is really well-structured, and our tour guide was able to show her knowledge and explain everything really well.

The second one we did was the 'basic 1' tour of the castle. The tour on itself is already worth paying for, as you explore amazing parts of the castle filled with history and great views, especially the masquerade hall. However, what made it incredible and memorable for us was our incredible tour guide, Jan. He explained every bit of history from Cesky Krumlov with great enthusiasm, showcasing his great knowledge about the history of the castle and surrounding areas. Jan is a funny and interactive guide, making the experience more of an immersive talk rather than a simple monologue. If you ever take an English tour of the castle, be sure to ask for Jan as your guide!

Impressive castle that would be better off, without the bears.
Jul. 2021 • Couples
The castle itself is pretty impressive, butvthe fact that they still keep two bears in such a small space in the front is irresponsible and absolutely from another time.
