Tour A is the best, no need for Tour B

We did the English tour A and was blown away with the ceilings and original graffitioes and furnishings. Our guide was very pleasant and spoke pretty good English. Excellent tour... read more

It doesn't matter if you know Czech Republic's history or not. Chateau & its history is definitely interesting & preserved nicely. You can take some wonderful pictures here & there's a lot from old times to observe & understand.

There are two tours available. We took Tour A which was the Renaissance rooms. There was no English tour available but we were given an excellent guide to each room. The guide made sure we saw the important points in each room and answered questions that we had. Worth the hour to tour it. The ceiling decorations were wonderful.

You can only visit the Chateau with a guided tour. Almost all tours are in Czech but you receive a leaflet with translation (at least FR DE UK are available). The problem is this one: the Tour A (Renaissance room) is very interesting; the rooms are well preserved; however the guide has only 1 hour to make the tour which... More

We did the English tour A and was blown away with the ceilings and original graffitioes and furnishings. Our guide was very pleasant and spoke pretty good English. Excellent tour and worth every extra penny for English. The B tour was rushed and we had to read everything. Our 2nd guide tried to explain a few things in English. But... More

A really beautiful castle with interesting art and history Just the tour went really fast and only in slovac and not the most interesting one The english guide was too much text jumping from one bit to another and with the tour going that fast it was difficult to even keep up reading it all and even seeing the rooms

I did not visit the chateau inside but from the outside it looks a bit run-down and not very taken care of. It has a nice small garden which must look great in spring and summer but visiting in autumn, I did not feel like exploring the castle more.

I had been disappointed several times during visits of castles in both the Czech Republic and Slovakia but this visit was awesome. if you like taking photos do not hesitate to pay for the additional fee, it is worth it. The rooms are beautiful but the ceilings are amazing. I could have spent a lot more time taking photos. Those... More

Telc château quite deserves its place in the UNESCO list. It has so many original interior objects, more than four hundreds years old. These includes beautifully carved stone and wooden ceilings, marble and wood floors and many more. H
