Konopiste castle - transportation and tour tickets

Does anyone know which bus one should take from city centre into Konopiste? Also do we need to buy the various tour tickets in advance? I read there are three different tours so wondered which one is the best to go to.

Thanks in advAnce!

bus is rather useless in this case to get to Kono.

easier to just grab a cab at the station or walk the 1.3 mile to the castle

you can also catch the new(kiddie) train service at the train station...check the timetable

done it at least 3 times....I've always done the tour with the armory and the chapel...#2

definitely include the chapel...if armory is not your suit then chose one of the others.

you can google images

Thanks Teja! Would the tours be available when we get there? I am also debating going to the Karlsjern Castle and it seems like I need to book the tour 2 in advance....is Konopiste more interesting than Karlsjern?

I've never pre-booked for either location. For tour 2 at KARL it is limited tour with only 16 people so in that case yes-you would need a reservation.

The biggest difference are the crowds...KARL is definitely more crowded and touristy......KONO is not.. As well it sits near a lake surrounded by trees and large garden (also better options for lunch in Benesov near where KONO is located i.e. not tourist prices or menus). KARL is more dramatic as it sits atop a hill.

I've done both several times. IMO either one is worthy as you won't find anything like them in the US
