The sacred rooms of the castle with the chapel of the Holy Cross

Both most valuable and impressive rooms of this medieval castle with original and unique decoration. What will you see? Eastern wing of the Imperial Palace, the 2nd floor of the Marian Tower with the Church of the Virgin Mary and the St. Catherine Chapel, the Great Tower - stairway with original medieval wall painting decoration, Lapidarium (ground floor), castle gallery and exposition dedicated to architect Josef Mocker and his 19th-century reconstruction of the castle (1st floor) and the Chapel of the Holy Cross (2nd floor), the spiritual heart of Karlštejn Castle and once of the Holy Roman Empire as well. Due to a complicated and demanding content (religion, medieval art, spirituality...) and about 100 min duration, we do not recommend this tour to young children (up to 7 years of age). Prior booking required (by phone): 0042 311 681 617. We prefer booking via telephone to avoid a complicated process of finding the right time for your visit in case of too many bookings. Thank you for your understanding. The tour is organised with guide only!
