Trebon Things to Do

  • Town Gates and Gate Towers

    Three historical town gates are preserved, one in the East and two in the South of the old town. Hradécka brána, Neuhauser Tor, marks the Eastward end oth the market square. The renaissance gate tower dates from the 16th century. Towards the South, one passes through two town gates in a (curved) row, which indicates that the town and its...

  • The Brewery

    The buildings of the local brewery (pivovar Bohemia Regent) look almost like a second castle. Their premises are located on the Southern edge of the old town. From the lakeshore you look at the huge production buildings with their two impressive chimneys. I am inclined to date these to the late 19th century. Between the two town gates in the South...

    Trebon is surrounded by hundreds of big and small ponds. They are all artificial. The first were already built in the middle ages. In the 16th century the systematic construction of fish ponds, supported by the ruling Rosenberg family. The ponds are used for the breeding of fish.

  • Town Walls behind the Palace

    Behind the palace gardens towards the pond, a part of the town fortifications is preserved. The wall and the short round towers, surrounded by the park, provide picturesque views.

  • The Palace

    The palace has seen several noble owners through its history - the Witigones, the Rosenbergs, then the Schwarzenbergs, who all left their traces and extended the complex. The facades look rather plain, covered in white plaster with simple sgraffito ornaments that pretend to be large stone blocks. A series of outer courtyards lead to the main...

  • Masarykovo námesty - the Main Square

    The heart of the town is the main square, named after the first president of Czechoslovakia. It is more a long wide market street than a square. Its shape is slightly concave on both sides, which adds an effect of perspective, a fine example of picturesque town planning.Beatuiful houses are lined up along the square, a few from the renaissance era,...

  • Old Town Hall

    The old town hall is another renaissance building, dating from 1566. Nowadays it is not used by the magistrate any more. The building hosts a cinema, an art gallery, and a restaurant. In the backyard there is a theatre. The tower can be climbed - the view over the square, the town, the palace and the surrounding landscape with its hundreds of ponds...

  • The Little White Horse

    The most beautiful renaissance house in the main square is named Bily konícek (apologies for missing accents) which translates to "Little white horse". It is located opposite the old town hall. Note the whrought-iron sign with the horse's image. The house hosts a hotel now, which might be a nice place to stay. As we visited only for a few hours...

This picturesque landscape, full of fishponds connected by numerous canals and brooks, and where fields are interspesed with mixed forests, developed in the course of centuries from an original landscape of marshland, peat bogs and old forest.

    2.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    It is the low building in the centre of the opening pic. We came long after the typical Czech lunchtime therefore only few guests were in the restaurant. The interior tries a bit to imitate an English pub. The menue (in Czech, German and English) offers traditional Czech cuisine with an emphasis on local fish.

    There is a small 3* hotel in the house as well, see the website.

    Favorite Dish: Anjutka had a carp dish and I had a pike. It was really tasty. Since a good friend of mine had recommended the local Trebon beer "Regent" we ordered it to the fish (normally we both prefer white wines to the fish but the beer is really great, even better than the dominating world famous Plzen and Budvar beers).

    As you can see from the pic the servings were really huge but nevertheless it was tempting to terminate the meal with a good Czech dessert. So we have chosen a palacinka with svestkova povidla (povidla is a very special type of jam made of prunes or in rare cases apricots and when it is cooked no or very little sugar is added, in ancient times it was cooked in big kettles on open fire during the harvest on the fields right between the fruittrees) and whipped cream and a medovnik (honey cake), a very tasty thing, too, but it seems to be industrially made because it looks and tastes everywhere exactly the same.

    Around Třeboň are innumerable lakes and puddles. They are artifical made in the 16th and 17th century in order to the counts of Rozenberg, especially for the cultivation of carps.
    This area of scenic beauty is ideal for cycling and walking.

Trebon Favorites

  • Carp Capital of the Czech Republic

    Carp is the traditional Christmas meal in the Czech Republic and 90% of the carps that are eaten on that holiday originate from the ponds around Trebon. Since the 16th century when the first artificial ponds were built, fish breeding and fish trade have been an important branch of Trebon's economy. In time for Christmas the water is lowered and the...
