This imposing 13th-century castle first served as a fortress and then as a prison for common criminals and opponents of the Hapsburg monarchy.

When in strange cities, I like to watch down on the houses, to get an idea, who the city is built, where things are. The Spilberk Castle is a good point to do so.

Spent a good few hours touring the castle and all its history over the centuries. Maintained in good condition. Especially enjoyed wandering around the prison areas. Tours provided in all languages.
