1 Roofed lookout on Třída Míru Street
The roofed lookout of Vyšehrad on Třída Míru Street offers a lesser-known view of the castle and the city. Your run-of-the-mill visitor to Krumlov is unlikely to make the climb to the Vyšehrad lookout point. But it's worth it! A view will open up for you there, during which the monumentality of the extensive castle complex from its northern side will truly stand out. The uniqueness of the view is further enhanced by the hilly landscape that lines the city and the castle on the horizon.
2 Next to the former Vyšehrad Hotel
Just a short walk from the lookout point on Třída Míru Street you can move just a little higher to the next lookout point. You need to go around the unattractive ruins of the former luxury Vyšehrad Hotel, and from the place where the Pohoda guest house stands you will get a beautiful panoramic view of the city and the entire castle complex.
3 Above the Plešivec stairs
From Nad Schody Street on Plešivecké Náměstí Square you will discover a less classic, but no less fascinating view of the city from its southern side. No other lookout point will so finely convey the architectural beauty of the Church of St. Vitus. You can get here from Kájovská Street, over Dr. E. Beneš bridge and up the Plešivec stairs. From this location, you can also see several interesting industrial buildings situated on the banks of the Vltava – to the left of the Dr. E. Beneš bridge you will see the yellow building of the Municipal Brewery together with the building of the former laundry house, on the right the buildings of the former dyeing and paper mills. Return to the city centre via Horská and Linecká streets and visit the Museum Fotoateliér Seidel, stop at the nearby Synagogue or take some time to meditate in the shade of old growth trees in the city park.
