Trip Planner: Europe / Czech Republic / Moravia / South Moravian Region / Brno / Spilberk Castle
At Spilberk Castle, walk through the dark dungeons where common criminals as well as state prisoners, such as Italian nationalists or opponents of the Hapsburg monarchy, spent years of confinement. The 13th-century fortress, which rises up on a steep slope next to the historical center of the city, is a popular place for walks and relaxation. Over the centuries, the castle has served as the seat of the Moravian margraves, a fortress, and military barracks. Now it is home to the valuable collections of the city museum, which give insight into the history of the castle as the famous "prison of nations." Using our custom trip planner, Brno attractions like Spilberk Castle can form part of a personalized travel itinerary.

Underwhelming especially after the long trek to get there. Although the view was great, there was not too much to see. Also, none of the signage or explanations were in English.

Although the castle itself is not worth visiting, but the castle ground and surrounding is just breathtakingly beautiful. It is a perfect morning walk around the park, plenty of places to sit, there are view points almost every few steps, so get your camera ready. The ground and park is so well maintained and clean, while I was there I really relaxed and forgot about all the noise from the city. Perfect for a relaxing stroll.
Great sightseeing spot to go to. It is right next to multiple sightseeing spots. On the top there is a bar with great bartender and the drinks are really nice. Right under the Castle is an nuclear fallout shelter also worth seeing. We did not get s tour but the public areas around the castle are really beautiful.
