Palace (main tour) - Tour I.

The interiors of the palace make you feel like you have a large Neo-Gothic illusory painting of individual halls and lounges. Inside the interior, we present the life of the Dauns and the family of Baron Haas. Unmistakable imitation imitates wall cladding with wood, stones or stucco. The rooms are equipped with stylish, historic furniture, reflecting the different periods of the styles. On the second floor there is an extensive zoological collection of domestic and exotic animals and trophies, founded by the brothers Vladimir and Otakar of Daun. The last private owner of the castle (until 1945), the large-scale baronist, George Haas of Hasenfels, expanded their collection by 49 stuffed dogs of various races. Today, this collection is the largest of its kind in the world. The tour ends in a castle mansion that has been operating since 1811 in the northern wing of the castle. The tale of the old bumblebee was filmed here (2011). At the time of the wedding ceremony, traffic on the 1st Circuit is limited. For more information, see the Messages folder. Thank you for your understanding.

On the ground floor of the sala terrena in five halls you will see a unique atypical collection of illuminators made of colored sheet metal. Baron George Haas was a great lover of animals and he set up a private zoo at the castle (one of the largest in the continent). He also behaved a large number of dogs, and he left his favorite. You will see a collection of his stuffed pets in II. floor. The Daunes were transformed into a romantic Neo-Gothic mansion. Romanticism was also subjected to the castle forest park over the castle, where they built a large number of sailboats and lookout for the castle itself.
