Ledeč nad Sázavou Castle
There is no magic trick they can't handle. The Grimm brothers are no yellow-bellies, they collect spells believing they can protect people from evil magic and vicious monsters. Among other places, their steps took them to Ledeč nad Sázavou.
Let's be more precise; they took them to the rainy and dark Karlstadt, into which the castle was transformed for the film. They crossed the impressive bridge and walked through the castle gates.
If you visit Ledeč nad Sázavou, you will quickly realize just what was so attractive for the filmmakers, who decided to use it in their grim picture. The very view of the massive castle, rising above the river, evokes the atmosphere of the original and pleasantly spooky fairy tales and myths. The view from the local tower onto the river Sázava valley is just spectacular. An exposition dedicated to local craftsmen and the history of the region is found in the castle. You're also welcome to visit the attic.
