Great castle with stunning view

Medieval castle is well reconstructed and offers stunning views over Brno city. We have visited only courts, but there are interesting catacombs called "kazemats" to visit.

If you plan on going to the museum, don't expect too much out of it. It's a prison museum but since there is no guided tour [or at least I wasn't able to find one] the leaflet which you get on the entrance is obscure in info. You have to walk up the hill to reach the castle from where... More

You need walk a bit to see this attraction and have great views. Little bit tiresome for some people but worth for it.

Located on the hilltop in Brno you can visit this castle/fortress/ prison with huge and interesting history. Enjoy nice walk to the castle, with nice views over the city. It is a nice place to relax and have a break from the hustle and bustle of the big city

For someone who is used to walking up hills, it was difficult. There were steep bits. However there are nice views from the castle.

The various tours of the casstle are all worthwhile, but also just going there for the views of the city can be recommended

It´s a nice place with a good view over Brno. Nothing special to visit, but you can view Brno. Also can take a beer in there.

It has it's own beauty on the Brno panorama, one of a kind place to visit, including dungeons inside the chambers of Spilberk Castle. Lot of green pastures to rest or play games, from pentaque to what ever one can think of in nature. If you are in Brno, have to take the hipe to Spilberk!

I drove up and parked next to it, Entry is free, but also not much to see there. Even the kids didn't show much interest. The view also is an average. C U Around
