A fair uphill walk to get to but gives good views of the city. Didn't go around the inside as you had to pay but you can walk around the inner walls for free. Some good view points, a museum and places to eat. Also lots of little monuments/plaques to see in the grounds. Minor drawback most signs were in... More

Coming from the UK, the castle looked much less castle-y than we were expecting- less Buckingham Palace more of a villa shape and style of building. The park surrounding the castle is beautiful, however, and the castle is very lovely. There is the option to purchase a ticket to view the entire castle and exhibitions, which we did not do,...

It was a short walk from our hotel but it was up hill to the top. There are various sections that you have to pay to go into but we are talking a couple of pounds for each and well worth it. The views from the top of the tower over the city are excellent and you can see a... More

The castle is situated on a hill just a short walk from the city centre and has a network of paths through trees which looked fabulous in the autumn colours in October. There is a vey good coffee shop up at the castle with an outside terrace which would be great in warm weather and it is also possible to... More

We had to take a taxi up and were picked up after two hours.Historical facts in each of many rooms. Could spend more time to benefit than we did.

A short walk through the wonderful park and you get merely lots of things to do inside the castle along with the great view over Brno. The music bell clock is amazing playing lots of melodies every quarter of an hour.

Head up to Spilberk castle through the beautiful gardens to the top for gorgeous views. The castle is now a museum that you can pay to visit. Or just visit the Spilberk cafe for a pint of Czech beer for 26kc (approx $1) and sit and enjoy the ambiance and vistas over beautiful Brno!

You can choose which parts of the castle to pay to visit. I chose the watchtower. Great views over the city. Be careful on the hour and every quarter hour the bell strikes in the top of the tower...almost scared me to death!!
