Not realy a castle. Some costumes presented. The guided tour is not in english. The view from there is not better than a view from a near by road.

Marvelous scenarery, the prefect on day escape! We went with a baby, but here is a tip for all the enthusiasts that would like to go with their kid: If u have a stroller - be warned that you will need to take the bycicle path (something like 3km each way), while as if you have a carrier, do take it with you. The walking path is steep at some places, but very manageable (total of 0.5km). There is a nice bar/restaurant on top, where you can rest and recharge your batteries.

Sensational views, nice area, well maintained buildings. We visited at a weekend and there was some wood-sword fighting for the children going on which our son really enjoyed.

We were really looking forward to the visit to the castle, the web site looks really good and there is no mention of what we found when we parked and walked to the castle.
When we arrived at the bridge to the entrance extensive works were taking place to the walkway, all the cobblestones were being refitted, not a problem in itself though no consideration was being implemented for visitors.
We got our tickets from the ticket office but when we went to the castle we could not go inside, a sign seem to suggest entrance only with a guide, though there were workmen all over fitting locks to doors and what we did glimpse through the door looked like a total mess in the main room, Went to go up the stairs when someone said something which when we turned round he just shrugged his shoulders, we soon found out that the doors off the stairs were locked. Went for a walk round the church which was nothing like the web site photographs, in poor condition with scaffolding on part of it. Went back to the ticket office, suddenly a language problem and we were referred to two students who appeared to be carrying out fieldwork. We wanted to know whether or not we could visit the castle, seemed that we could not without a guide, was there a guide, did not know.
This monument is owned by the town of Turnov, what we encountered was not just disappointing it was deceptive. We had 12 really good days in Poland and Czechia, unfortunately this was not one of them. If someone from Turnov wants to contact me via TA I would be more than pleased to respond. In the meantime you need to put something on your website about the current situation.

Definitely worth visiting - choose the time when some festivities are taking place, it is usually plenty of fun! Castle itself is very picturesque, not even mentioning the stunning views!!!
