The Schwarzenberg Tomb - Trebon

The Location of the Schwarzemberg tomb, Domanin

The neo-gothic Schwarzenberg family tomb is one of the most interesting architectural monuments in South Bohemia. You can find the tomb not far from historic town centre of Trebon, south-east of the Svet Pond (Rybník Svět).

The History of the Schwarzemberg family tomb

The Schwarzenberg family began to rule in the Trebon Region in 1660. The inspiration to build a family tomb came from Eleanor Schwarzenberg, the wife of Jan Adolf Schwarzenberg II. Builder F.D. Dewortzky constructed the tomb between 1874 and 1877. It is a six-sided neo-gothic building with a beautiful tower and majestic double stairs surrounded by an English park.

There is a sophisticated drainage system beneath the tomb to prevent dampness and water damage, because the lower part of the building is under the surface of the Svet Pond. The Schwarzenberg Tomb was declared a National Cultural Monument of the Czech Republic along with the Trebon Castle in 2001.

Opening hours – the Schwarzemberg tomb

The tomb is open to public from April to October daily except Monday (9.00 – 16.00) and from June to August the opening hours are extended until 17:00.
You can find more information on the official website of the State Castle Trebon.
