Tour of Kokořín Castle

The most visited place in the whole Kokořín region is undoubtedly the Kokořín castle, built on a sandstone rock. Without a guide, you can climb the lookout tower and walk through the castle palace. From the castle tower it is beautiful to see how heavily forested Kokořínsko is

Convenient ascent to the castle

Directly to the castle there are two paths, one short steep one by stairs or a comfortable „pram“ for a little longer. Most visitors go through both.

Massive castle tower

The massive castle tower will look at you first

Strong walls of Kokořín castle

The castle is built on sandstone rocks with very high walls – it looks impregnable. You can enter the steps through a small gate or go around it and enter the main entrance.

Kokorin from the courtyard

The small courtyard is cramped by high walls, but from here there is a classic view of the castle

Stairs to the tower

The ascent to the tower is possible without a guide and you can reach it by a wooden staircase. The walls of the tower are decorated with coats of arms of aristocratic families

At the castle gate

The exit from the main gate was tactically made to the bridge leading to the adjacent sandstone rock

The castle on the other side

From the main gate, the road leads to Mácha's Rock with a „viewpoint“, but practically nothing can be seen from there, despite the growing vegetation.

Road tunnel under Kokořín

From the castle you can descend a steep staircase directly to the tunnel leading through Kokořínský důl
