A Baroque chateau once belonging to the Lords of Vrbno a Bruntál, built at the beginning of the 18th century; later Classicist alterations were carried out in the second half of the 19th century by the Hanavský princes of Hessen, Germany. The park is separated from the chateau by a wrought-iron gate and a fence with Baroque sculptural decorations by M.B. Braun. The so-called “Sun Gate” represents the focal point when viewing the park from the chateau building. The interiors feature paintings by J.E. Schorr a K. Würbs, as well as an exhibition of musical machines and an exhibition of cast-iron artworks.
