We came to Lednice because of the Chateau that dates back until 1222.
The Chateau in the 13th century, belonged to the Liechtensteins who owned the nearby Valtice Chateau which we had previously seen. The Liechtensteins at one stage, were the wealthiest family in Moravia.
In the 16th century, the old medieval water Chateau was demolished and replaced with a Renaissance chateau, then at the end of the 17th century, the chateau was torn down and a Baroque palace was built, which included a large formal garden and a massive riding hall which still stands today.
Between 1846-1858, the Chateau was again renovated, and this is how it looked when I saw it!
Prince Alois II had decided that Vienna was not suitable for entertaining in summer and had Lednice rebuilt into a English Gothic Summer Palace. Here, in the majestic Hall, many banquets were held for the Aristocrat's of the Country.
It is beautiful to look at from the outside, it has nice gardens and many other features which I will tell you about in the next few tips.

If you do all the tours and all the walking, you would probably need a full day here.
We were here at lunch time and found none of the tours operating, so try and come at a different time!
