Is Vimperk a castle or a chateau? How did the Renaissance get to the foothill town in Šumava?
Take a guided tour to the oldest preserved part of the castle - the Vlček Tower, to learn how the castle in Vimperk was built. Discover together how it was transformed into a Renaissance chateau during the dramatic period of the Thirty Years' War in Šumava. Admire the beautiful painted wooden ceiling under which the defenders of the castle fled during the conquest in 1619 and listen to the story of the family Novohradský from Kolovraty.
The tour is heated – the temperature in the rooms reaches a maximum of about 10 °C (with the exception of the Vlček Tower, which cannot be heated).
