“More than a chateau”
Reviewed 31 August 2013

This chateau, in a pleasant town of Jilemnice, is in a lovely park, opposite the church, and also houses the Krkonose (Giant Mountains) museum with one of its main attractions – the 100 year old fully working mechanical nativity scene with hundreds of moving figures. During a guided tour visitors can see some well restored and fully furnished rooms as used by the Harrach family. In one of the wings there is an art gallery, displaying paintings (landscapes) by the local artist Kavan. In the restored old brewery building next door, there is an interesting exhibition on local beer making and an extensive exhibition on skiing history and temporary art exibitions are held there from time to time there. If interested, you can also watch the sills of craftsmen in the local arts and crafts workshops, also in the old brewery building (entrance from the other side).
