Bezděz, once a royal castle, is one of the most significant Gothic monuments in the country. Visitors can admire the royal palace with a unique chapel and abundant Gothic architectonic details, the burgrave\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\'s palace and other parts of the castle. The Grand Tower with a knights\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\' hall on the top floor that offers spectacular views of the surroundings is open to the public as well.

Bezděz Castle was built in the 13th century as a royal castle. It is an important part of Czech history. The castle is considered the most sophisticated type of castle ever. It was difficult to access so any extensive renovation was nearly impossible. Bezděz Castle is situated at the top of the hill of Bezděz (604 m above sea level). Its 35 m tall tower offers superb panoramic views of distant surroundings. In good weather, you can see the tops of the Jizerské Hory and Krkonoše.

Expositions: The premises of the original upper castle are open to visitors (comprising a valuable early Gothic chapel with cross arches, old royal palace, burgrave's residence). A large part of the original walling, Čertova Věž (Devil Tower) and the stations of the cross are well-preserved. The Velká Věž (Grand Tower) is used as a lookout gallery.

Guided tour - 50 minutes or a tour on your own, with a printed guide.
