Barrier-free access

Stairs, stairs and more stairs.

Without the aid of another person, it’s only possible to visit the castle grounds at Červený Kamen Castle. Exteriors with unpaved surfaces and especially the museum exposition or other exhibition spaces are only accessible for the disabled with an accompanying person to ensure mobility and movement on staircases and the interior thresholds. We recommend arranging such a tour in advance at lubos.harsany@snm.sk to avoid large groups during the season, which make it impossible for the lecturer to give all individuals equal attention. Contact us and we’ll arrange it!

In fact, the castle exposition with cellars contains 204 steps and 26 raised thresholds, i.e. at almost every passage between rooms.

However, you can reach the castle courtyard with no barriers at all. There are no barrier-free toilets in the courtyard. Those can be found by the entrance to the large car park.

Hiking, cycling

Natural scenery as far as the eye can see.

Červený Kamen castle’s greatest asset is its location. It makes it an ideal location for a family trip, combining a historical experience with relaxation in nature. For example, you can take in a beautiful view from the Kukla hill (564 m above sea level) towering above the village of Píla, or the clearing below Veľký Vápenný (547 m above sea level) to the north-west of the castle. The Small Carpathian Mountains offer idyllic forests, easy climbs, but also long stretches of hiking. The local forests are ideal for running, cycling and family walks. Therefore, our castle can serve as a starting point for various other activities.
