A Truly Royal Experience
The Castle of Český Krumlov is the second largest castle complex in the country and the number one attraction in the town. It comprises 5 different courtyards and 11 hectares of very-well kept royal gardens. Perched on top of a hill, the Krumlov Castle offers stunning views of the Old Town built in the river bend. With its beautiful architecture and originally furnished interiors, the Krumlov Castle attracts tourists from all over the world.
As we enter the Castle, make sure to take a closer look at the bear moat – it is an actual bear residence! Be ready to be duly impressed as we tour the Castle from the inside. It feels just like traveling back in time to the era when the Rosenberg dynasty inhabited its noble halls. Apart from a guided tour of the castle interiors, we’ll also visit the Baroque Theatre and learn about its original stage machinery.
(Please note that the Castle and the royal gardens are closed from November 1 to March 31. During this period, you can enjoy a visit to the Castle Tower and Muzeum and engage in a retro photo shoot in a local atelier.)
A Stroll through the Fairytale Old Town
The best way to explore Český Krumlov is by wandering through the narrow streets of its historic downtown. You’ll want to stop at every corner to admire the elegant Renaissance architecture of its many medieval buildings. Let’s peak into the quaint little coffee shops, ice-cream parlors, superb restaurants, and unique souvenir shops that hide behind the colorful facades.
Make sure to have your camera ready as we enjoy beautiful views from a footbridge over the Vltava River or when we visit the majestic St. Vitus Church. In the town square with its cute fountain we’ll admire the Renaissance-style Town Hall and the Plague Column. Let’s stop by a former Jesuit College or an original art center. In Český Krumlov you won’t be bored, there’s so much to see, do and taste!
Lunch by the River with Breathtaking Views
All this walking around will surely make your stomach rumble. No worries, we won’t let you starve! Let’s stop for a lunch at a traditional local restaurant right by the Vltava River. With a magnificent view of the castle in the background, you can observe all the little boats pass by – a popular Czech pastime during the summer months. If you visit in the winter, we’ll have a lunch at a cosy medieval-style restaurant in one of the romantic alleyways. How about a local Eggenberg beer while you enjoy a hearty Czech meal?
Please, remember that food and drink are not included in the price of the tour.
Want to Have Some Fun?

During the summer months, you can hop on board of a wooden raft and with an ice-cold beer in hand experience the town from yet another perspective.
