The landmark of the city perched on a rocky promontory at an altitude of 51 meters above the confluence of the Labe and Ploučnice. Its current form is the work of the leading aristocratic family of the Habsburg monarchy. During the 20th century the castle was the seat of several armies. The area includes a large park and the baroque Rose Garden.

On the site of today's castle was built - under the influence of Gothic - a huge castle during the 13th century. It was rebuilt into a Baroque castle in the 16th century. Last change to the style of classicism met the building in the 18th century. During its existence the building functioned as a military fortress and residence of important families. The popularity gave it even Chopin, who composed some of his works here. The castle has a long driveway carved into the rock.
