My five cents is that you shouldn't walk of bike there (unless you are energetic young puppy) but reserve your strength to sightseeing and essential walks and explorations. The John Castle is very far from a main castle. We took a horse ride in the carriage. Pluses: resting, wildlife seeing, and story telling at the same time. Going back you... More

Built as a hunting lodge on the Lednice estate, guided tours are only offered in Czech but there are written notes in English and it is definitely worth a visit. The old delapidated wooden bridge built by an Italian filmmaker has now been replaced by something more substantial (but less charming). The castle can be reached by boat or on... More

I think the place is nice but it takes quite a lot of time to get there. The tour is not worth it in my opinion. You see just a few rooms and the view from the castle is nothing special. If you are a history lover, go for it, otherwise spend your time differently.

Definitely worth the nice walk from the Lednice chateau, we really enjoyed it. The setting in the Sumer must be much better, though, we visited in very late October.

The whole area of Lednice/Valtice is full of nice places likes this small castle in the woods which are perfect for a bike trip. There are several stands arround the castle where you can get some soda or beer, even something small to eat. Be prepared to follow the bike route markings carefully, otherwise you can get lost easily. I... More

From outside it looks great, but would not recommend buying tickets to see this "castle" from inside. There isn't much to see, not much of original equipment is preserved. On the other hand - the surrounding nature is great and would recommend to have a walk around.

Very nice place! Really amazing atmosphere! You can visit the castle or you can only watch the beauty of this castle, sit by the river and drink cold beer. You must visit.

It's a nice place but the bridge which you have to use is broken which makes it not easy to access . The other annoying thing is this refreshment places where they sell beer sausage there is 3 of them on this little place ....
