Good way to spend an hour filling time.

Didn't see exhibitions. Walk up to and around the castle a good way to spend a couple of hours. Good views of Brno.

If you want to see all of Brno, climb mild hill. It is sorounded by charming park and affords the view of entire city. Interesting museum inside.

Spilberk Castle crowns a hill overlooking Brno. Its defensive walls are mainly of brick, while the castle is white with red-tiles roofs. There are a number of Austrian coats of arms carved in light gray stone on its walls, particularly at the entrance and in the courtyard. The castle contains administrative offices for the city. The views over Brno from... More

Impressive. Big and full of many exibitions. it is well maintained and really a lot to see. Just a pity that almost everything is n Czech only, with just some booklets in other languages for a generic decription, in each room.

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
