Wonderful little market of some gorgeous localy made gifts and food. The castle was decorated for Christmas. Although the tour was only in Czech, they have a programme in English and was pretty easy to follow along. All the portraits on the walls are originals, and in amazing condition. You really get a sense of how the nobility lived. Very... More

I live fairly local so I thought that I should try to boost the popularity of this gorgeous place. As others have already said this is more a Chateau than castle (a bit of Czech poetic licence). Beautifully appointed building with a relaxing garden and the most lovely orangery. The house tour is a bit brisk and yes you will... More

Very nice place to visit. Although only in Czech spoken we received a description in our own language. But the tour was 'high speed' and we hardly had time to look around for more than a minute.

First sight of this castle leaves one rather confused from an architectural point of view. In the courtyard there are banners for French aristocratic families and the feel is off a chateau. When the tour starts, in Czech but with an english booklet, all becomes clear. Having initally been a Czech castle which was then acquired by Wallenstein it was... More

A magnificent palace, rather than castle, encompassing a lovely large garden with an outstanding collection of mature trees. Although the palace is very extensive and highlights superb craftsmanship in so many areas, it retains the feeling of a family home, albeit that of a very wealthy family. It has a much warmer feel to it than many palaces or castles... More

This is one of the most architecturally beautiful buildings I have ever toured. As you progress throughout the castle each room is just more fabulous than the previous. The detail and carving is a testament to the craftsman that created it. The doors are also interesting, the carving on each side is different. Each matches the room they enclose. Look... More

Great stop over in the way from Liberec to Turnov! The castle is an interesting mix if Baroque and Neo-Gothics. Try good local wine in the small souvenir shop (right of the entrance) and enjoy carvings inside the castle!

We arrived at the castle after dark. It was lit up nicely. It happened to be a cold rainy night, as well. The castle is not heated. We had a splendid organ recital before a tour of the castle. Our guide knew a lot about the Rohan family and the history of the castle. The castle is a very nice... More

A lovely drive outside Prague, Sychrov Castle was a surprise to me - more grand manor than castle and beautifully furnished. Great wood carving everywhere. The grounds are lovely to stroll around too. When the crowds of tourists in Prague start to get on your nerves, visit peaceful beautiful Sychrov Castle.

We almost passed by the opportunity to visit this amazing place! That would have been a mistake. The drive to the castle through the Czech countryside was beautiful. The tour of the castle was amazing. We were on a group tour arranged by Grand Circle and the guide was very knowledgeable. The owners of the Castle were German and were... More
