Klasterec nad Ohri Chateau

Klášterec nad Ohří, Czech Republic

The The Chateau at Klášterec nad Ohří is a prominent landmark in the town's recently restored historic urban conservation area. The chateau is set in an extensive landscape park, with 220 tree species, some rare from around the world. The park features a Baroque style sala terrena pavilion, with a gloriette mezzanine decorated with architectural sculptures by Jan Brokoff (1680s).

The park's northern section has an installation of the Stations of the Cross (1690s) and the Church of the Holy Trinity with the Crypt of the Thun Noble Family.

The Chateau at Klášterec nad Ohří exhibits an extensive porcelain collection from the Museum of Decorative Arts in Prague. Occupying 21 rooms on the chateau’s first floor, the collection of Bohemian and Czech porcelain documents the more than 200-year-old history of porcelain manufacturing in Bohemia. The historical showcases and interiors feature the output of porcelain factories in Slavkov, Klášterec nad Ohří, Březová, Kisibl, Chodov, Stará Role, Dalovice, Prague, Loket, Budov and Ždanov.

The display presents a selection of early porcelain produced in China and Japan, as well as Meissen, Vienna and Nymphenburg between the 17th and 19th centuries.

Beautiful gardens along the river, and very relaxing at the same time. Steeped in history and where the trees are as old as the river and its embankments. In autumn, winter, spring or summer its a great place to get away from it all and just unwind.

No information on closing time. Although the lady at the desk tried to be helpful we were disappointed in general.

Beautiful place, very nice park next to it. Perfect for wedding ceremonies (especially if held on the balcony overlooking the river).

Beautiful place with good nature

Beautiful walks and scenery especially at this time of year in late autumn as the leaves are changing colour as you follow the Ohre river and it's banks with the Chateau appearing above the oak trees that have bore witness to generations gone by and if only they could talk. And sometimes it you listen carefully as the gentle breeze rustles the leaves in swirling circles... There is a story being told. Absolutely worth a visit. Not to be missed in my Apinion.

Kakesbeck Castle

Kakesbeck is one of the largest medieval fortifications in Münsterland and the oldest castle in Lüdinghausen. The imposingly grown complex originated in 1120 as a motte, a small hilltop tower castle. After numerous changes of ownership, the castle was extended onto two islands, but it was not until the 14th century that it underwent significant alterations and extensions under the von Oer family. The estate experienced its heyday in the middle of the 18th century, when it covered an area of almost one square kilometre and consisted of five further outer castles in addition to the core castle, which were secured by ramparts and moats.

The well-maintained condition of the castle today is thanks to the late Wilfried Grewing, the former lord of the castle. The foundation named after him has been particularly committed to preserving the property since 2020.
