A four-wing structure with a regular layout surrounds a rectangular courtyard with well-preserved Renaissance arcades. In the second half of the 20th century, the chateau was used as a children’s sanatorium. In 1998, the chateau was passed down to the administration of the Museum of Decorative Arts in Prague and has been used as a publicly accessible furniture depository. In the south wing of the chateau, the Municipal Museum operates a permanent interactive exhibition entitled the Museum for All Senses. Each year, the chateau hosts Hračkobraní, a popular festival of wooden toys. The chateau’s park is dominated by a 700- to 800-year-old lime tree (in Czech lípa), after which the town was named.
