Kokořín Castle (German Kokorschin ) is located near Kokořín in the south of Daubaer Switzerland in Okres Mělník in the Czech Republic . The once dilapidated castle was rebuilt in 1911 in the style of a medieval knight's castle . The castle is the most famous tourist attraction in Daubai Switzerland.


The fortified palace with the castle wall was built around 1320 by Hynek Berka von Dubá . At the end of the 15th century the castle was rebuilt in Gothic style by the lords of Klinštejna. The castle was deserted from the 17th century.

In 1894 Václav Špaček von Starburg bought the ruins. Under the direction of the architect Eduard Sochor , the castle was restored between 1911 and 1918 and designed in the neo-Gothic style. In 1948 the castle became the property of the state. In 2001 the castle was granted the status of a national cultural monument .
