Have fun in Český Krumlov and its colourful surroundings with your whole family and enjoy a summer of relaxation and joy. On this page you will find tips on activities, sights, cultural and other events that your children – and you along with them - will definitely enjoy.

Have fun in the city park

Culture and relaxation combined with a bit of exercise? Sounds quite ideal and can be found in the city park all summer long. While you enjoy theatre performances for children on Thursdays, refreshments in the local café, cooling down in the river on the small beach with access to the river, you also have the opportunity to work out a bit in the newly built outdoor gym - all of this in one place - the oasis of greenery in the southern meander of the Vltava River.

The gift of water and its joys

Fun on the river attracts the little ones and those a little older. Here you can enjoy the beauty of the Vltava River and the sights on its banks at the same moment. You can swim in the river right in the centre of the town at ready access points, experience an unusual sightseeing tour from a raft or canoe floating down the river, and if the Vltava in Krumlov is not enough for you, you can head to the nearby "Czech Sea" Lipno Lake.

Children's playgrounds

You can easily find playgrounds in the very centre of Krumlov. As you wander the Krumlov streets and alleys, you'll find several larger or smaller playgrounds.  As many cafés, bistros and restaurants are close by, a chance to have a drink, ice cream or a little something to eat won’t let you or your kids go hungry or thirsty during your play time.

Culture and sightseeing with children?

Why not? Visiting museums can be fun even for the little one! This year's must see is the exhibition of children's book illustrations by the leading European illustrator Jindra Čapek at the Český Krumlov Monasteries. However, there are other sights, museums and attractions that will interest your children as well as yourself. Check out our tips and when you have seen it all, don't forget to take away a souvenir in the form of a period photograph from the Museum Photoatelier Seidel!


Wander around Krumlov with your children, explore its architecture, nooks and crannies, gardens and nearby surroundings in a fun way. As you walk through the castle grounds, be sure to greet our bears in the castle moat.

Best trips for kids

The countryside around Krumlov offers countless possibilities for various trips, whether you head north, south, east or west. One trip not to miss is a trip to the nearby Klet' mountain, from where you can see the Alps in good weather. To return, rent a kickbike, and enjoy the ride down the hill. These trips are hits among kids!
