The former Gothic castle is the pearl of the royal town of Litoměřice. The heart of the castle dating back to the 13th century is a modern exposition dedicated to winemaking.
Between 2007 and 2011, the former Gothic castle was costly reconstructed and rebuilt under the working title "The Shrine of Czech Winemaking". The result is a multifunctional space, which includes a revitalized courtyard and an administrative building. The mission of Litoměřice Castle is, among other things, to spread the wine-growing tradition of the region, which dates back to the time of King Charles IV. The wines are preserved in the ideal conditions of the cellars, which are connected to the tasting room with original stone tiles and vaulted ceilings. The modern conference hall with preserved Gothic artefacts makes Litoměřice a centre of congress tourism. The castle was named the Building of the Year of the Ústí nad Labem Region 2013.
Impressive are not only the large-format photographs, but also the narration of Charles IV (3D display) about the local vineyards.
The summer opening hours of Litoměřice Castle from 1 July to 3 September are Monday to Friday from 8.00 a.m. to 5.00 p.m. and Saturday and Sunday from 10.00 a.m. to 3.00 p.m.
You can also visit the tasting room with its original stone pavement and vaulted ceilings adjoining the cellar, which houses the wine archive. The castle has a modern conference hall with preserved Gothic artefacts. The foyer also serves as an exhibition hall. The attractive rooms offer a lounge with a historic monument chapel. The castle includes a stylish wine bar.
