Rožmberk Castle

The historical interior of the Lower Castle includes the Knights’ Hall with a remarkable panelled ceiling, a picture gallery, an armoury, and a hangman’s house. Presided over by its castle on the promontory, Rožmberk’s central square contains the Church of St. Nikolaus (first built in 1271 and rebuilt in the 15th century) and numerous 17th- and 18th-century townhouses. Take a drive or plan a spring bike trip along the beautiful, tree-lined banks of the Vltava from Český Krumlov to Rožmberk (23 km), then stop for a relaxing lunch at one of Rožmberk’s riverside pubs and watch the antics of the river rafters. If you’re inclined to make a longer outing of it, you can paddle your own canoe – there are plenty to hire, and many shady campsites along the way.

Rožmberk nad Vltavou

Rožmberk nad Vltavou is almost like a mini Český Krumlov. It has a smaller castle built on the rock cliffs that overlook the river and the small town. This is the starting place for a day’s canoe trip down the Vltava River to Český Krumlov.
