Ticket-office and WC are barrier-free. Both ladies and men's restrooms have a limited mobility stall.

Cyclists

The cyclists are permited to enter the castel´s park. The only limitation is in the courtyard at the chateau, where it is necessary to lead the bicycle. There are bicycle stands in front the entrances to the Honorary Court and infront of the ticket office.

The chateau complex directly intersects the cycle path that runs along the Vltava river. If you go to the bike, we recommend you to visit a guided tour of the cycling tour, which will take you through the hidden corners of the park and familiarize you with local history and romantic pavilions.
