Southern Bohemia Sights

Hrad Rožmberk (Rosenberg Castle)

  • Castle/Palace/Chateau

Updated 09/26/2013

Fodor's Review

This sprawling castle overlooks the Vltava River, about 20 km (12 mi) south of Český Krumlov. Inside, on the main tour, you'll see a mix of Romantic and Renaissance interiors; portraits of crusaders; and the Rosenberg Hall, dedicated to the family's history. The second route shows the apartments of aristocrats. The English Tower is a 200-step climb, and rewards with beautiful vistas of the countryside. Buses run from Český Krumlov's main depot, but are infrequent on

weekends. Legend has it that the ghost of a White Lady appears from time to time.
