Castle Interiors of the First Floor (Basic Tour)

The exhibition represents the authentic living quarters of the last owners, the princes of Schönburg-Hartenstein in its appearance in 1910, when the last reconstruction of the castle was completed. The individual functions of the rooms logically divide the floor into the representative, social, private, and guest rooms.

During a 50-minute tour the visitor can see the guest salon, Ditters salon, the guest bedroom, the toilette room, the prisoner's room, the antecamera, office, study, dining room, salon, boudoir, ladies' bedroom, wardrobe, connecting gallery, men's bedroom, men's dressing room, and Kamarýt's bedroom.

The rooms are furnished with almost exclusively authentic furnishings, among which are several works of art which surpass the average standard of castle furnishings.  A summer inventory might include Seisenegger's child portrait of Jáchym and Zachariáš of Hradec (1529), Mülich's portrait of the Bavarian Duke Albrecht V. (1555), Flegel's Still Life with Flowers, Book, and Glasses, Wallerant's portrait of Jan Karel Jáchym Slavata, and perhaps the most popular item among visitors, the curiously ugly Dutchess Markíta Pystaká, also known as Maultasch.  The present exhibition was created from 2004-2006.  The visitor who happens to know the previous appearance of the castle will be pleasantly surprised by the cosiness and furnishings of the interior, evoking the feeling that the aristocracy left the room a mere moment ago.
