Letecký pohled na zámek

770 years of inspiration

Exceptionally interesting history has been written here by Cistercian monks since the 13th century, by the ingenious architect Jan Blažej Santini-Aichel or the current owners of the castle, the Kinský family. Following a varied past, they are building a lively, creative and friendly environment open to all. Be a part of our story.

You are warmly welcome!

Currently

From 23 July to 8 August is due to roadwork the main castle parking in front of the complex closed.

No worries though! We have a couple of alternative solutions for your car:

Parking Apple Garden (meadow behind) – the main substitute parking, just turn left in front of the castle wall when going from Ždírec nad Doubravou – follow the navigation (1 minute walking distance)

Parking TOKOZ – turn right when going from Ždírec nad Doubravou – follow the navigation on the cycle path and Dvorská Street (10 minutes walking distance)

Parking by the Ice-hockey or Football stadium – a possibility when going from Havlíčkův Brod, Jihlava, Brno, or Nové Město na Moravě – walk on the cycle path along the Sázava River (30 minutes walking distance) or use bus lines 2 or 5 from the stop Bezručova, stadion and get off at the stop Sychrova

We wandered into the castle by chance, we have never heard of it until now. That made it an even bigger surprise. We were drawn the most by the interactive exhibition about the history of the former monastery, but we also really liked the attitude and behavior of the staff. Definitely worth spending more time there, it is interesting for both older and younger children.

Zámecký oválný sál - Prelatura

I took a complete tour with my family. First a tour Following Santini´s Footprints who left a deep mark here in Žďár. Certainly, the most beautiful is the church and the prelature with a beautiful ceiling painting. Afterward a tour of religious paintings and statues of the National Gallery. Lastly, we went through a modern museum, which I really liked. You get an audio guide and go through the exhibition on your own.

Muzeum nové generace - první patro

I really did not expect this. Well-maintained castle/monastery, including adjoining buildings. Modern architectural elements and materials are sensitively used in the original buildings.

Obchod se suvenýry - Zámek Žďár nad Sázavou

This is what a tourist attraction should look like (meant well). Great facilities, parking, information system, café, lockers, toilets + a pleasant, guided tour and at the end a well-equipped shop.

A word from the Kinský family

Dear visitors,

In managing and making cultural and natural heritage accessible, we follow two legacies from our predecessors: „Our past is the source of our future“ and „The society that creates can flourish and live on.“

We hope that this place and its history will become a similar source of inspiration and energy for you as it is for us.

We wish you a pleasant visit!
