Its a nice walk up the hill and you are there, once you are there you can go down to the ctacombs to see the prison from 17th century. Really cool

Free entry, but you must pay for some of the exhibits, best view of the city by far from the walls and gardens, a must see

I liked the tour in the Casemates. They could improve the atmosphere with more exhibitions and authentic items in the area.

This is our number 1 looks great during the day and great at night. Just make sure you allow enough time to see all parts of it.

Outside the castle doesn't look exactly interesting, but there are so many things to see there! I absolutely loved it. Don't miss out the exhibition of orcs! The view from the look out tower is great too! Wonderful castle!

The Spilberk castle is just a few minutes away from the city centre. Unfortunately, I was able to visit only the Casematte section, due to time reasons. The visit has been anyhow very interesting, going through the old prisons (but completely renovated). Just a pity...More
