White Tower

The highest structure in the castle´s grounds. A prism-shaped building is located between the White Castle and  the  English park. This noticeable structure is a mere torso of a great project of an intended ceremonial way-in. A granite staircase leads from the ground floor through the inside of the tower; other floors have not been completed. Among the tower and the walls a large lookout terrace towering 12 m above an old road has been located. It offers an impressive view of the Hradečná brook. 10 granite stairs lead from the centre of the terrace into the entrance hall of the tower. The railings and a high gate as well as the lining of the windows and decorative elements of the tower have been carved in sandstone. The history of the White Tower has been connected with the issue of its use – none of the plans has been fulfilled so far. The White Tower has been waiting for its opportunity.

In 2012 the White Tower will be opened thu-sun from 10 am to 5 pm.
