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.

  • Unfortunately the Castle tour was not held, at the Infocentre we learned that it is now closed. The walk through the Castle Park was great, the snow added a lot, we did not go with the wrong feeling

  • Tina Horšovského trip we planned after we just drove through and across Týn nad crossroads was a wonderful historical building. Near the Center is easy to park your car free of charge, the castle itself is from the outside/lock unexpectedly beautiful and extensive. There are places that would be deserved reconstruction, especially the back part of the Castle, but is working on it. The whole tour was very pleasant, the Castle part has a fully-equipped interiors, everywhere a lot of paintings, furniture and everything in a very preserved condition, was friendly and overall was a tour of a lot of interest. In addition, the stable is under lock and key, where are the different exposure. Near the cash register is a porticoed courtyard, where we sat comfortably next to the toilets are free. In the middle of the square, the Church and the Tower of St. Peter and Paul, after climbing up to the walkway is a magnificent view of the surroundings, to the little church of St. Anna. After lunch, we still spent about three hours in the Park, if you pick up at the tourist information centre in the town square Park map, you can go to a nature trail and explore and validate individual types of trees. The path leads up to the Park a lot back to the Beaver Dam, then you must go the same way back. The Park is meticulously maintained in front, in the back of the already is not in power to maintain. In any event, a beautiful walk, even if it is a lot of sunshine.
