Sychrov Castle, located on the border between the Bohemian Paradise and the Ještěd Ridge by the Mohelka River, offers not only interesting interiors, but above all a beautiful and extensive castle garden built since the 18th century. Entrance to the castle garden is subject to a fee.

Castle fountain

You can park in a relatively large parking lot right next to the castle. The first thing you will be greeted by is a magnificent fountain.

Sychrov Castle from the front

The front view of the castle is also very nice

Courtyard with a tower

They check tickets in the passageway, so you have to decide whether you will also go on a tour of the inside of the castle, or whether a walk in the garden is enough for you. Then you will reach the picturesque courtyard dominated by the tower.

Sychrov Castle from the garden

The castle looks completely different from the garden than it does from the front. In addition, it is currently being renovated, so parts of it are under scaffolding.

Castle Orangery

The most important building in the park is the Castle Orangery. It now serves as a cafe.

Castle water tower

The castle's inte­resting water tower stands right next to the orangery. Have you ever seen a nicer pond somewhere?

Rudolph's Viewpoint

The last stop in the castle park is Rudolf's Lookout, from which there is really only a limited view.
