Kozí hrádek was built as an artillery tower to serve as a strategic place of control over the Mikulov castle and trading paths between Brno and Vienna. Thanks to that, Mikulov gained an excellent defensive power in whole region of central Europe. You can tell whether the place is open or not from away – if the flag is out, you’re welcome.
The educational trail of the Jewish Quarter will take you through the streets of Renaissance houses with original vaults; the houses in Husova Street are cultural monuments. The interesting fact it that the houses of the Jewish Quarter were marked with Roman numbers I to CLXIX to distinguish them from Christian ones. A frequent phenomenon in the ghettos used to be the so-called condominium, ie the real division of the house into several individual owners, both horizontally and vertically – descriptive numbers were then divided into a, b, c and beyond. The mikveh is also part of the educational trail – it was used as a symbol of a ritual cleanse for Orthodox Jews before the beginning of every Shabbat and holidays. In addition for women, it was used after menstruation, before the weddings and after birth. You can learn that end even more on the educational trail, that leads through the city center and is connected to hiking trails.
This nature reservation is one of the most popular places in Mikulov and its surroundings. You can find very rare plants here as well as protected animals. The way of the Cross will lead you to the top of Svatý kopeček up to the pilgrimage chapel, the bell tower and the tomb of God. The reason for building the Way of the Cross was to express gratitude to God for overcoming the plague epidemic that threatened Mikulov in 1622.
In the north of Mikulov you will find a place that is one of the oldest nature reservation in the area of today’s protected landscape area and the Pálava biosphere reservation. The cave can be reached on a nature trail, and the cave takes approximately one hour to explore. The Turold educational trail is accessible throughout the year and is largely the same as the Turoldu Cave. We recommend that you use the red hiking trail, which is the most interesting.
Visit the town square, which was built at the end of the 16th century mostly in the Renaissance style. The square is decorated with a fountain, which serves as a source of water for the inhabitants of the inner city, a statue of Pomona decorated with house sign of Dietrichsteins. The Holy Trinity Sculpture, the Knight’s Sgraffito House and canonical houses await you on the square as well.
This gem lies on a limestone rock cliff, which provides a unique view of the whole Mikulov. During its history the castle burnt down several times, but demanding repair works saved the main landmark of the town. The most interesting places include the chateau library and the hall of the ancestors. Nowadays, the chateau is the seat of the Regional Museum in Mikulov, which offers, among other things, night tours during the summer holidays. Weddings with a unique view of the Holy Hill are also held in the castle garden.
A place where you not only eat well, but also can take home delicacies. Part of the bistro is a shop with wine and food from local farmers. Fresh and local ingredient are used in the kitchen and they also think about vegetarians.

You will go through eight villages in the microregion Milkulovsko, so there are plenty of opportunities to stop and rest. And in Novosedly you can go around the small circuit of Stará hora educational nature trail, where you will learn something new about viticulture.
Although this trail is more than 80 kilometers long, its profile is also not so difficult. On the way you will come across the most beautiful places of the region, which we write about on our site. You will see the Turoldu cave and get to see Lednice and Valtice or to the ruins of Dívčí hrady near the popular village Pavlov. About half of the route will take you on quiet third-class roads, the other half on groomed bike paths.
Queen of wine cycle paths. In this case, you probably stop in Mikulov for only one day. It is not a circuit, but a 290 km long route that crosses the entire wine region of South Moravia. You start in Znojmo and drive to Uherské Hradiště (or vice versa). You will visit a lot of beautiful places, but we believe that in Mikulov you will like it most.
The route of this trail is simply contained in its name. Around Novomlýnské reservoirs you drive just over 30 kilometers and this path is certainly suitable for children. The advantage of this trail is that on hot summer days it is always close to the water in which you can cool off.
For many years the most visited South Moravian monument, which perhaps does not even need to be introduced. Lednice chateau with its large and rich garden is one of the most beautiful complexes not only in the Czech Republic. Where else can you find the Moorish minaret next to a pseudo-Gothic imitation of the castle ruins? You can also visit the greenhouse with the most precious greenhouse flower in the country – a five hundred-year-old cycad. Lednice is located about twelve kilometers from Mikulov, so you can comfortably get there by bike.
When you say Lednice, many people immediately think of Valtice too. After all, under the protection of Unesco is the entire Lednice-Valtice area. In this wine-growing town you can also see a beautiful chateau with a park, but it is worth visiting the neo-Renaissance town hall as well. And of course the wine cellars, which is probably the most typical thing for this place.
