The oldest part of the Lanškroun Chateau is the wing adjacent to the Church of St. Wenceslas. This was the eastern wing of the monastery, built by the Augustinians after 1393. The structure was named a chateau as early as 1507, when it was acquired by the Pernštein family. The building underwent numerous reconstructions over the subsequent centuries, and these substantially changed the chateau’s appearance. A ceremony hall is now located in the newly altered Gothic spaces of the chateau’s west wing; the south wing holds the town museum and cultural centre. Allegedly there is an underground passage that leads from the Lanškroun Chateau to the New Chateau at Rudoltice. In 1940 the Germans searched for this underground passageway, without success.

Did you know that the spectre of the evil keeper Rieder supposedly haunted the surroundings of the Chateau Lanškroun, swinging from chateau poplar trees, his eyes glowing and howling like a wolf?
