Long walk but very picturesque
Aug 2020 • Couples
As you get off the boat you can see the castle high up through the trees in the distance. But how to actually get there is not well signed. You'll go straight ahead from the boardwalk and the road eventually weaves round to the right. But at first you feel a bit like you are heading into the wilderness and unsure if you're going the right way. Stick with it and you'll finally see the catle footings on your right. All told it's a 20-25 min puff up to the top, so do go with a bottle of water and comfy shoes.

There's a small fee for general entry, which gets you round most of the site and gives a good feel for the place. A bit extra if you want to see the exhibitions. Lovely spot with great views over the valley - picnic tables, loos and cafe on hand, so everything you need for a nice family day out

A nIce trip point when you travel to Brno
May 2018 • Family
Sometimes you need to have a rest during your stay in a city and you want to meet history and nature at the same time. It is the right place for you! You can walk, cycle or travel by steam boat there from Brno and spend relaxing time.

well worth a look

Park up at the Bystrc part of the lake and take the scenic boat to Veveri, the walk the other end is lovely thought the forrest. The fortress sits high above the lake and will take another 20 years to full and sympathetically renovate but the work so far is great. There are a couple of small bars set into the historic buildings within the fortress for snacks and drinks but no high end restaurant but of you are wanting food there are good restaurants at some of the boat stops and you can get off for food and them resume your boat trip with ease - highly recommended. You can access Veveri by car and its a spectacular drive thorugh the forrests surrounding the lake and free parking too ..... well worth the time to visit even if its just for the fabulous views!!!!

under reconstruction

You will reach the castle by coming by ship. Then a walk taking some 20 minutes and you are there. The location and the building are pretty, the interiors are mainly under reconstruction however you will visit a part of them within a guided tour. There us also an interesting exhibition on the Moravian history of 12-14th century.

Veveri Castle: where Winston Chruchill spent his honeymoon
Sep 2017 • Family
This castle located outside of Brno on the banks of the Brno reservoir has been renovated in the past years. It is a worthwhile place to visit, particularly in good weather. There are often fairs and cultural events held within the castle walls.

Veveří Castle (Hrad Veveří) is an originally ducal and royal castle some 12 kilometres away from Brno city centre, Moravia, Czech Republic near the dam. A guided tour was a great idea to know more about the history. Really worth seeing.

One day trip
May 2017 • Friends
If you are around Brno and have some spare time, than hop on tram no 1 on Hlavni Nadrazi, get off at Sidliste. Take a boat and enjoy cca 50 minutes until you reach this beautiful castle that overlooks Brno lake. Not much of food choice around but you won't regret a second for investing few hours.

Visit on a sunny Sunday morning
Jun 2017 • Family
We took the boat on the Brno dam to a stop under the castle, then it is a very nice stroll in the valley of river Veverka and a little climb up to the castle. To enter the grounds you pay a small fee (aprox 1,1 EUR) and we also got a wine tasting vouchers. There are nice walls planted with wine behind the wine cellar and you can climb up to have a great view of the countryside. I highly recommend going to the very far end tower - freely accessbile and if you climb up you can not only see a medieval toilet but a little more steps up you get a spectacular view of the whole castle - highly recommended!

Very interesting castle
May 2017 • Couples
We took the tram from town to the dam & then the lake boat trip to the castle - a lovely way to arrive.

We took a guided trip around the interiors that they are slowly restoring. We were given detailed information sheets whilst the guide gave the tour in Czech, but he spoke excellent English, was extremely friendly & answered our many questions.

Very interesting visit.
