It’s worth the walk up the hill and the minor charge you pay for the rose garden tour is worthwhile. Some great views!

Located up the narrow steep Dlouha jizda, a cobblestone street with high walls, Decin Castle is sited on the bluff of the town where the Elbe and Ploucnice Rivers meet. Starting as a wooden fortress in the 12th century, rebuilt in stone as a royal...More

A long walk up to the top but a very nice rose garden at the base, a brewery to the side, and a few restaurants, and a nice ice cream stand taps off a nice reward down the hill. Lovely views of the city and...More

You can only see the inside by taking the tour, conducted in Czech, but we paid for an English audio guide so we can follow along. Quite interesting to see the place where Caspar David Friedrich’s Decin Altarpiece came from when we ran into it...More

We came to Decin late, so cannot enter inside the castle. But we entered the Rose Garden and the gardens on the opposite, and so also walked the gardens below the castle. The rose garden definitely worth the money you pay for it - beautiful...More

We visited the rooftop rose garden at sunset - the garden itself was lovely, as were the views it afforded over the town. Would highly recommend if you're in the area.

Zámek je snadno přístupný, velmi citlivě zrestaurovaný. V sočasné době jsou nivě přístupné terasy zámeckých zahrad s vodotrysky a s pávy. The castle is easily accessible, very carefully restored. At present, the terraces of castle gardens with fountains and peacocks are open for visitors.

The guided tour took a bit too long just because it was just in Chzech language. Ther was a German hand out, but the guide could have told a bit more to the non-Czechs
