CZ, Vidovice – Berchtold Chateau
You won’t regret visiting Berchtold Chateau. There is the Children’s Paradise chateau garden which surrounds the chateau itself. Within the garden there live magical creatures. The most popular is, for instance, the underground hell where Lucifer and devils dwell. Another one is the famous explorer V. Klimtova’s fairytale land of gnomes and bogeymen and the candy house where a witch lives. One section of the garden holds scale models of Czech castles and chateaus. Thus, you can see small models of the most beautiful Czech landmarks. There are around 20 of them in total. The most beautiful are: Cervena Lhota chateau, Karlstejn castle, or St Jiri’s rotunda on the top of Mountain Rip model. Another popular amusement ride is a trampoline. An entire family can enjoy jumping on it. A small zoo also belongs to the compound. Holland pygmy goats, swan gooses, pigeons, or domestic rabbit live at the zoo.
There are many family events held at the castle throughout the year. Most of them take place on the courtyard and, to some extent, at the Children’s Paradise. The Great Children’s Day and the Veterans exhibition are among the most popular events held at the chateau. This year, these two events take place on the weekend of 28th and 29th of May.
