Pezinok Castle is a historical and architectural jewel of the wine-growing town of Pezinok. Interestingly, Pezinok Castle is often referred to as the "Water Castle" because it was once surrounded by two water moats.

It is clear at first sight that the castle is the dominant feature of the historical Pezinok. It was built in the 13th century and was occuppied by influential counts of Pezinok.

In the 19th century, the defensive character of the castle was suppressed and in its surroundings an English park with rare trees was planted.

Later, it was acquired by the Slovak wine cooperative. Štefan of the Šimákovec family built a winery and hotel here with expositions of wine, glass and Pálffy family. It is interesting to note that in the castle, there was also a recording studio of Opus, in which many well-known hits of Modus and Mira Žbirka were created.

The castle offers organized tours with various expositions and a gallery. You can also see historical cellars with barrels and an exhibition of the National Wine Salon there. The castle is easily accessible and is close to the city center.

Families with children will also appreciate the reconstructed castle park, where they will find rest and relaxation in a beautiful lake with wild ducks or freely released peacocks.
