Pernštejn Castle, Czech Republic
If you go..
Check opening hours and plan plenty of time. The tour alone may take over an hour, and there are other museums, shops, and bastions to wander.
By public transport, the nearest train station is Nedvědice. From there, it's a a nice walk to the castle, about 1.5 km on the yellow trail. You'll see the castle in the distance. Head along the railway tracks toward it and watch for trail markers. On the way back, consider the "long" red loop, which leaves from the castle gate nearest the restaurant and takes you past some other sights like a covered wooden bridge, an old stone bridge, nice views of the castle, and various other points with interpretive signs in Czech.
