Castle Horsovsky Tyn, Horsovsky Tyn

Horšovský Týn is a town in the Plzeň Region of the Czech Republic. It lies on the River Radbuza, some 40km south-west of the region capital Plzeň. From 1938 to 1945 it was, as Bischofteinitz, one of the municipalities in Sudetenland.HistoryA settlement on the right bank of the Radbuza river was first established in the mid-13th century, on land owned by the archbishops of Prague. The town was besieged and defended during the Hussite wars between 1422 and 1431. The German Elector John, Count Palatine of Neumarkt (Johann von Pfalz-Neumarkt) helped relieve the town.After the death of Louis II of Hungary at the Battle of Mohács in 1526, Archduke Ferdinand of Austria became King of Bohemia and the country became a constituent state of the Habsburg Monarchy to 1918.After 1539 Bischofteinitz belonged to the House of Lobkowicz. After the Thirty Years War the town passed to the counts on Trauttmansdorff, in whose possession the castle remained until 1945. Bischofteinitz developed into an important, if minor, provincial centre bordering Bavaria.

  • It is a really nice little town from middle age. It is a perfect destination for a short trip with small kids.
  • Nice! But unfortunately not possible to see yourself, you have to book tours that are long, over an hour. It is very well maintained. Tours are in Czech and you have to buy an additional text if you speak Gernan for example. The tour guide was very friendly, the lady at the cashier desk very arrogant and unfriendly.
