The castle itself is impressive on the hill. There was a concert going on on the grounds. There was a person teaching archery near the entrance after climbing up the hill. Lively and fun looking.
The owner and his wife were assassinated in Sarajevo, the event that triggered the WWI.
Our guide Pavel made a huge difference by telling not only the stories and background, but also by answering all kind of questions.

We only had time to do one tour so we did tour 2 which highlighted some of the castle, some of the animals and the armour. The armour collection was amazing! It was great to see up close things you read about in books. It is the 3rd largest collection in Europe. It was great to see where Franz Ferdinand lived. I wish we had had time to visit the grounds as they looked spectacular.

There is no need to take a tour from Prague to reach the castle. We took the train to Benesov, which took about 50 minutes from Prague at an incredibly low cost. The train is nice, people were very helpful.

Upon arrival to Benesov we took a taxi, which drove us to the castle.

The castle is in a beautiful forest. The tour is in Czech, but they provide audio guides.

The restaurant outside the castle, down the hill is very good and prices are beyond reasonable.

I highly recommend the visit!

A beautiful castle and if you know the famous story of Franz Ferdinand and Sarajevo the tour 3 really added to the picture of this part of history. His aristocratic lifestyle is fully on show with so many of the animals mounted on the wall- eccentric to say the least although he is painted as the perfect family man. I had to pay for an audio guide while having to go round with a Czech speaking group. They seemed to be getting more than me from their live guide which was a bit disappointing. The gardens are lovely to walk round- I missed the bears which sounds like a good thing.

Konopiste Castle is one of the very beautiful castles located in the surroundings of Prague, in the Bohemian Region. It is possible visit the castle only with a guided tour, but the visit is really interesting, especially the room with a lot of dissected animals. In fact, you can choose between 3 guided tours and we only do one of this. If you go to Bohemian region or to Prague, it is a very recommendable visit.
Moreover, we do the guided visit with our baby and it is perfectly possible.
