From Easter to St. Martin’s Day, the castle will be open for visitors on Saturdays, Sundays and holidays between 10 a.m. and 6 p.m.
Families and spirited explorers can discover the castle with a map, on an independent research tour of the Rihemberk Castle Treasure. The castle welcomes groups with guided tours and a colorful range of interpretive tours.
Rihemberk enters the season with a beautifully decorated castle chapel, one of the oldest and most interesting buildings in the castle. It is said to have been built in the 13th century. Later, according to the year 1533, it was renovated. The chapel got its current Renaissance-Baroque form in the 17th century, as evidenced by the inscription on the restored stone altar. The Rihember chapel hides many stories, including why it was originally dedicated to St. Pancratius, and later St. Is not it. Some secrets will be revealed to us at the event of the opening of the chapel, on Friday, April 21 at 5 p.m., when visitors can expect an interesting castle program.
This year’s novelty of the Svitar Institute, which enables accessibility and programs at the castle, is the Born to Rule experience, in which guests dress up in costumes from the 14th century and take on the identity of the real personalities of the Rihemberski family. The program, which was supported by the Ministry of Culture and the Center for Creativity, offers guests training in 10 skills of nobility on the way to finding nobility within themselves.
