Castle Red hrádek




Early Baroque castle Èervený Hrádek is situated 2 km north of Jirkov at the foot of Krušné hory (the Ore Mountains). Visitors to the castle together with a guide can go through the gallery and chapel of John the Baptist on the ground floor, then through the mirror hall and the knights' hall which is the dominant of the whole building. Then they can see the hunting lounge with a picture gallery, the study room of Max Hohenlohe-Langenburg Egon, hallways and other rooms on the first floor.

The permanent exhibitions and the expositions in the castle belong to the sightseeing tour. Another exhibition venue is the Castle Riding School, serving as a technical museum.

Along with the sightseeing tour the visitors are invited to the castle restaurant with summer sitting in the courtyard which is open all the year round and the castle hotel.

We recommend visitors to the castle to visit the unique historic Jirkovsky cellars and the stone tower in Jirkov. Entry to the cellar and tower is provided by the staff at the Information Centre in Jirkov (474,654,265, info.centrum @
