Guided Castle tours

During the main tourist season, Lednice and Valtice castles offer a variety of guided tours and exhibitions, giving you the opportunity to feel and learn about the refined atmosphere of palace life.

Tours are presented as stories, which tell of the splendor of palaces, Liechtenstein life in Moravia, their family history and the modern history of Central Europe. During the tour, you'll feel and learn about the luxury and wealth that shaped life inside and outside the castles. You'll see splendid works of artists and craftsmen from across Europe and beyond.

Lednice castle, with its Neo-Gothic reconstruction of the 19th century, is one of the most visited monuments in the Czech Republic. The beautifully-preserved royal residence is surrounded by one of Europe's largest royal parks (almost 200 ha) and features unique Romantic-era monuments including the Palm House, the Venetian fountain, Roman aqueduct, the Chinese Pavilion, Islamic-style Minaret, and the artificial ruins and hunting lodge of Johns Castle.

The Valtice Castle is a marvelous Baroque pearl. This former residence of Liechtenstein princes today features stunning halls and rooms full of gold, marble and wooden decorations and original baroque frescoes. The newly reconstructed Baroque Theater is a unique presentation of historical theatrical technologies that it can be played and experimented with. The chateau is being gradually renovated, with new areas, halls, rooms and exhibitions opening over the coming years. Updated opening hours and tour information can be found here.
