We drove to see this great castle with my family and had the most wonderful visit. There is a paid parking area 250 m. from the main entrance, short walk up a hill. Our guide was a young lady that did not overwhelmed us by dates and too much history, but made this tour fun by citing many personal stories of the resident family. The castle was built in 1241 and from there it underwent many improvements and reconstructions. When it was "nationalized" by the Communist government in 1949, the family had to move to a small flat in Prague and Jiří Sternberk, the owner, worked as a tour guide in his own property! After the fall of Communism Český Šternberk castle was returned to Jiří's son, the count Zdeněk Sternberg, the current owner of the castle, who still lives there with his wife. The tour takes place on the second floor of the castle, the owner lives on the first floor. After the tour we had delicious coffee and pastries in the courtyard.
