Long Description:
Rotštejn is a ruin of a rock castle founded before 1300. It is located at the southeastern part of the Klokocské Skály.

The castle was mostly wooden, in part carved in the sandstone blocks. Its dominant element was an impressive tower with a rock gate accessible from a rock canyon. In the kitchen, rock benches are preserved, and there are marks of the fireplace and the chimney. In addition, you can see remnants of a walled palace, several rock rooms, a wall with loopholes, and the castle well carved in the rock.

In cold and rainy weather the monument is kept closed for safety reasons.
Type: Ruin
