Description: The original fortress likely dates to the 13th century; in the 14th century it was rebuilt as a Gothic castle. The Pernštein family subsequently rebuilt the castle as a Gothic-Renaissance chateau. This chateau was purchased in 1560 by the royal chamber and ceased to be an aristocratic residence. The significantly dilapidated chateau was repaired by the Museum Association after 1918.

From castle to chateau: transformations of the Perstein residence

source/author: Vít Pechanec
Description:A walk around the exteriors focused on the architectural transformation of the main residence of the Pernsteins from the Gothic water castle into a Renaissance chateau. Moravian magnate William of Pernstein began the reconstruction in late Gothic style after 1491. During his lifetime the castle became a fort surrounded by a massive fortification system. His sons, Vojtěch and Jan, continued in extensive construction under the influence of the Italian Renaissance. During the tour, visitors explore the individual building elements and learn about the development of the palace, which stands on the border between the castle and the chateau.

Barefoot along the ramparts

In addition to the enchanting view from the second roundel of the ramparts, they will also enjoy the sensation of their feet touching various natural materials in relatively safe terrain. The trail was created on the second roundel (southwestern), which offers seating on benches and tables, so the experience can be easily combined with a picnic.

Children's tour of the Secret Bunker - cancelled

Description:Visit the secret bunker built during the Cold War in the chateau ramparts! In the event of an enemy attack or a hit by a radioactive fallout, the regional civil defense headquarters was to manage rescue work from its underground spaces. With your own eyes, you will see how in such instances people could communicate with the surroundings from the bunker, how the diesel generator generated electricity, and try what it took to keep the air filtration running by hand. The temperature in the bunker is between 12 and 15° C all year round, so don't forget to wear appropriate clothing!
