Valtice Castle History

Valtice Castle

The Liechtenstein family built the Waltice Castle about 350 years ago. Part of it now serves as a museum while some wings have been transformed into a hotel, restaurant, and nightclub complex.

For those interested in architecture, the village itself has an impressive town hall and an early baroque church overlooking the main square.

Valtice is also one of the best-known wine centers in the southern Moravia wine-growing region. The Valtice wine company, established in 1640, exports its product around the world, including to Canada.

At the outskirts of the village, below an artificially raised mound, is one of the largest and oldest wine cellars in the Czech Republic. It’s a stone structure, built at the end of the 12th century in the shape of a cross, 450 feet long and 300 feet wide.

Valtice Castle Location

Valtice Castle lies very close to Lednice Castle, and they are part of Lednice–Valtice Cultural Landscape. The complex is worth visiting on a day trip.

Visits to the Valtice Castles, wine tasting at the Valtice winery, and shopping at the small stands for souvenirs and crystal provide pleasant breaks from the traditional busy tourist centers of central Europe.
