Hazmburk, Libochovice region

If we call Milešovka mountain the queen of České středohoří, so the king has to be castle Hazmburk without doubts.


The ruins of a Gothic castle from afar visible basalt hill above the village Klapý, located 3.5 kilometers southwest of the city Libochovice, dominates the landscape of České středohoří. Castle has been residence of the family Zajic from 14 to 16 century. Top of the castle is situated at an altitude of 418 m above sea level. The dominant of the Lower Castle is huge oval black tower made from dark basalt, 25 m tall. It reaches a width of 9 m in diameter and its walls are 2 m thick. The upper castle dominant, White tower with battlements, is 1 m higher. It’s made from light sandstone and is open for visits.

If you set out for the castle, make sure you climb the tower – because from the top arises not only a wonderful view of the city Libochovice, but you will also oversee the whole region of the bottom Labe, plus Ohře River in the distance, a mythical mountain Říp and even the breathtaking panorama of České středohoří. When visibility is good, you can see in the distance on the northeast transmitter on Ještěd Mountain, and you might even see Krkonoše Mountains behind it. Castle Hazmburk is reachable from three sides - from Libochovice, from the village Slatina or Klapý.
