This late Baroque and Rococo chateau in Central Bohemia near Prague is certainly worth a visit. You can admire its rich ornamental decoration, English park and French garden. If you wish, you can spend the night right in the chateau, as it offers accommodation in a four-star hotel and also has rooms for weddings and family celebrations.
The chateau is only about 50 kilometres from Prague
, near the town of Příbram
and the Brdy
Mountains. The present appearance of the chateau in Dobříš dates from the years 1745-1765, when it was renovated by Jindřich Pavel Mansfeld. The Colloredo-Mannsfeld family lived here until 1942, when the chateau was expropriated by Nazi Germany. After World War II, the chateau was confiscated again, this time by the Czechoslovak State, and was used for social purposes. In 1998 the chateau and its French garden and English park were returned to the Colloredo-Mannsfeld family.
Inside the chateau, you can visit 11 rooms furnished
style and take a look inside the luxurious Mirror Hall that is used for concerts or sumptuous wedding ceremonies. A romantic atmosphere is guaranteed! Visitors also usually like to take a walk in the French garden
, with floral ornamentation and carefully maintained hedges evoking an atmosphere of bygone times.
