Winter tour (basic tour)
Autumn has arrived, and Hluboká Castle is still accepting visitors. Tradition has typically held that the castle gates would close to visitors on October 31 and remained closed until April 1 of the following year, when tourism revived. The newly accessible tempered rooms have now enabled the staff at Hluboká Castle to welcome those interested in a tour, even during the cold season. And there's certainly plenty to see. Rooms with a chamber-like atmosphere have been gradually re-installed for viewing. In the larger part of the ground floor, available for viewing during the winter months, the private suites of the last four generations of the Hluboká dominion's owners have been prepared. Entering through the corridor on the right side of the courtyard, we begin in the Hamilton Parlour of Princess Theresa. The corridor itself, aside from hunting trophies and graphic prints from the 18th century, also boasts framed photos of the Schwarzenberg family. The hunting motifs bring us into another room – Theresa's Smoking Room and the Small Dining Room. Next we see the magnificent Hunting Dining Hall, Preparatory Room, Dr. Adolf's Small Dining Room, his Study, the Living Room, and Bedroom.
