Long Description:
Zamek vznikl na míste puvodní tvrze, rozšírené koncem 15. století na hrad. Rod Krajíru z Krajku pocal s jeho premenou v renesancní zámek pod vedením stavitelu Matteo Borgorelliho a po nem Ettore Vaccaniho. Na zámku rádi pobývali císari Ferdinand I. a Maxmilián II. a predevším Rudolf II. Ti pokracovali v jeho dalším rozširování. Steny zámku byly postupne pokrývány sgrafitovou výzdobou. K zámku patrí rozsáhlá zahrada italského typu s letohrádkem, mícovnou, bohate zdobenou balustrádou se sochami a kašnami, které zásoboval drevený vodovod. Jedním z jeho vývodu byla kamenná hlava delfína v manýristickém slohu. Do zahrady se vcházelo krytou chodbou na pilírích, zvanou Rudolfína.
