Off course you can’t skip this. Brno is small and here you can get a good view from the city and learn some new things.

Spilberg offers a nice round view over the city. however the eastside facing the old town is under constructions. Otherwise its a pleasant walk for the afternoon. check out whether they have a concert playing at night. we couldn't make it.

The castle has been extensively renovated and now has very impressive displays and galleries for art, etc. It is located on a hill in the very centre of the city. there are impressive views of Brno city in all directions.
