Visit to the Stud

Visit the studs in Kladruby nad Labem and Slatiňany which are home to Kladruber greys and blacks.

In Kladruby nad Labem, you can enjoy a guided tour of the stables, of the coach room with the Kladruber Horse Exhibit, and of the Chateau. Also, do not miss a tour of the forester’s lodge and a climb up a hill with a viewing tower offering a unique view of the stud and its surroundings.

In Slatiňany, our guests are offered a guided tour of the stables, which includes the coach room, the historic tack room of the Auersperg family, and the training centre.

TOURS

Stables

See the historic stables of one of the world’s oldest studs, promoted to the Imperial Court Stud as early as 1579. Meet our Kladrubers, horses of kings and emperors, and explore the journey a newborn foal must make to become a stud mare or a breeding stallion.

Castle

Jump back in time to the days of the penultimate Austrian emperor Franz Joseph I and his wife Sisi. Follow in their footsteps through twelve rooms furnished in the period style, calm down in the church they had built here and learn about their peculiar habits and life stories.

Carriage house, Harness Room & Museum

Explore a coach of the last crowned Czech king and a number of other remarkable carriages and historic harnesses. Examine our life-size model of an imperial team of eight, and in the museum set out on a journey through the nearly 500-year-old history of horse breeding in the Kladruby nad Labem area.

Forester’s House

Visit a baroque log house with the historic office of the chief forester, and then hop on a coach ride simulator, which will take you on a virtual tour through the unique landscape of Kladruby Elbeland. On weekdays you can also peek inside a working saddler’s workshop.

Observation Tower

Converted from an original 1920s water tower, this 21.9-metre-tall observation tower allows you to get a bird’s eye view of the Stud – provided you dare climb the 87 steps to the top.

You can visit the tower on your own. The key is to be borrowed at the ticket office against a 200 CZK deposit.

Slatiňany Stud

In Slatiňany, you will be able to enjoy a guided tour of the stables which have been home to black Kladruber horses for more than 70 years. The tour covers the stable of sires, the stable of dams - where our youngest foals can be seen in the springtime, the coach room, the historic tack room of the Auersperg family, and the training centre.

Virtual tour

If you cannot visit our stud at the moment, why not make use of a virtual 3D tour we have prepared for you to see our riding hall, a coach-and-four or the Imperial dining room? You can also take a look into the Kladruber Horse Exhibit.
