Castle and mansion

Guide tour

a Magical place with a family background

The aim of the reconstruction of the Castle and the Manor House was to make its beauty accessible to the public. A guided tour through the courtyard and interior of the castle and the manor house is prepared for you, as well as an audiovisual presentation of the history, reconstruction and the premises in their present form.


During the tour, visitors have the opportunity to see the premises of the medieval castle and the Renaissance manor house, combined with expert interpretation by trained guides. The tour also includes two audiovisual presentations of the history of the Castle and Manor House, the story of its reconstruction and a presentation of the present day monument. We are also preparing various events, such as Children’s or Night Tours, Castle Tours, Castle Cinemas, theatres, or others, so we recommend you to follow our social networks, where you will always find fresh information about any upcoming events.

In the summer season, tours start from the Podhradie, where there is also a buffet with snacks and ice cream. A large free car park is available nearby, from where you can walk up to the local Skalka lookout. Outside the summer season, tours start at the hotel reception.
