Both most valuable and impressive rooms of this medieval castle with original and unique decoration. What will you see? Eastern wing of the Imperial Palace, the 2nd floor of the Marian Tower with the Church of the Virgin Mary and the St. Catherine Chapel, the Great Tower - stairway with original medieval wall painting decoration, Lapidarium (ground floor), castle gallery and exposition dedicated to architect Josef Mocker and his 19th-century reconstruction of the castle (1st floor) and the Chapel of the Holy Cross (2nd floor), the spiritual heart of Karlštejn Castle and once of the Holy Roman Empire as well. Due to a complicated and demanding content (religion, medieval art, spirituality...) and about 100 min duration, we do not recommend this tour to young children (up to 7 years of age). Prior booking required (by phone): 0042 311 681 617. We prefer booking via telephone to avoid a complicated process of finding the right time for your visit in case of too many bookings. Thank you for your understanding. The tour is organised with guide only!

What will you see? The Karlštejn Castle Treasure - two sets of goldsmith work, mostly from the second half of the 14th century. Representative drinking pots, cyphus (a gilded bowl with enamel decoration with motives of exotic water birds used to dilute wine with water), two silver cups with a pearl decoration, or a silver and gilded bowl with a female portrait from Petr Parler's workshop. The larger part of the treasure includes fashion accessories - jewellery, buttons, brooches and pins and also a small round box of fragrant herbs and ointments (called apple, perfume, pomander...), a rarely preserved case that was worn at the waist. A reconstruction of a table set for a festive banquet on the occasion of Emperor´s last visit to France in 1378 takes you back to the most fashionable royal court of its time. And replicas of historical clothes will show you medieval fashion at its best.
