The State Castle of Trebon

The Location of the Castle in Trebon

The Renaissance Trebon Castle (Zámek Třeboň) is located in South Bohemia in the Czech Republic. The castle is one of the main tourist attractions of the spa town Trebon. You can find the town of Trebon halfway between the Czech towns of Ceske Budejovice and Jindrichuv Hradec.

The History of the Trebon Castle

The Trebon Castle is one of the largest castle complexes in the Czech Republic. A Renaissance Chateau was built on the site of the original gothic castle by the Lords of Rozmberk between 1562 – 1611. In 1660, the castle was acquired by the Schwarzenbergs, a significant noble family who contributed the baroque extension in the outer courtyard of the castle. The Schwarzenberg family owned the castle until 1940, when the property was seized by the Gestapo. The State Castle of Trebon was declared a National Cultural Monument of the Czech Republic in 2001.
