The fairytale Old Town in Cesky Krumlov

During the tour of the city, we will explore the narrow and romantic streets of the Renaissance Old Town that includes 300 medieval buildings, enjoy views from a footbridge over the Vltava River and see the impressive Egon Schiele Art Centre. At the Hotel Ruze, a former Jesuit College with beautiful Renaissance sgraffiti, you will see pictures of crowds saluting Hitler in the square during World War II, when Cesky Krumlov was home to a German-speaking majority. We will also visit Saint Vitus Church and the town square with its Renaissance town hall, Plague Column, and fountain. Next on the list is Latran Street with its colorful, medieval houses. The second biggest castle in Bohemia is not to be missed, either. Take a close look at the bear moat, where bears are really in residence.

Lunch at the Vltava River with a breathtaking view

While touring the Old Town, we will eat lunch at a traditional restaurant near the Vltava River. You will have a magnificent view of the castle if you visit during the summer. In the winter we dine at a cozy, medieval-like restaurant with a fireplace, located on one of the romantic, winding streets. Do not forget to savor the local Eggenberg beer.

Krumlov Castle

The Castle of Cesky Krumlov is the number one attraction in the town. Composed of five courtyards and 11 hectares of gardens, it attracts tourists from all over the world. Cesky Krumlov Castle became the primary residence of the Rosenbergs in 1302, and they remained there for nearly 300 years, greatly influencing the castle’s and town’s history. A golden carriage in the castle is sure to amaze. Constructed from gilded walnut in 1638, the carriage was used to transport presents from newly-elected Emperor Ferdinand III von Habsburg to Pope Urban VIII. That is not all Cesky Krumlov has to offer. Its Baroque theatre is one of the oldest of its kind in Europe. Constructed from 1680 to 1682, it is one of only several Baroque theatres in the world with its original stage machinery, costumes, scenery, and props.

Admission fees and opening times: Krumlov Castle is now open on Mondays and in the winter as well

Cesky Krumlov Castle is made up of the Upper and Lower Castle. The Upper Castle is open daily from April through October except for Mondays. If you are in Cesky Krumlov on a Monday, do not fret – you can still visit the interiors of the Lower Castle and/or its tower. During the winter (November – March), when the Upper Castle is closed, you can still admire the interiors of the Lower Castle daily except Mondays. The castle interiors are completely closed on Mondays (November-March) and during the holiday season from December 22 until January 1. Still, you can admire the exteriors of the five courtyards of Krumlov Castle and wander around the Old Town. During that time we will also make a stop in the capital of South Bohemia called Ceske Budejovice (Budweis) where you can taste the original Budweiser beer or mulled wine from Christmas markets. So, during the holidays the tour will not be shortened. Admission fees: Upper Castle 200 CZK / person, Lower Castle (Museum): 100 CZK / person or Lower Castle + Tower: 150 CZK / person.
