The beginnings of this castle date back to the first half of the 13th century. It was established by the Czech king as a strategie defensive strongpoint and legal center whith the status under the so-called hunting law. The oldest part of the castle was made up of a defensive tower residential palace and chapel. The chapel was built in the 1380's by Prague stonecutters according to the model of the St. Chappelle - the royal castle in Paris. Although the castle was the permanent property of the king of until the 16th century, it was often given out into the management of nobles families. At the end of the 15th century it was owned by the Cimburk family, under whom was built the knight's reception hall in late Gothic style.
In 1511, the castle entered private hands. From the 16th to the 18th century, castle ownership was shared by the families from Žerotín, Zástřizl and Petřvald. Additional construction was made on Buchlov in Renaissance and Baroque styles. However, in 1701 a Baroque chateau in Buchlovice was completed, to which the owners had moved permenantly by 1751. The Berchtolds of Uherčice became the last holders of Buchlov in 1800. Through the auspices of two half-brothers, Dr. Leopold I. and Dr. Bedřich I., a family museum was created at the castle, which was opened to the public in the mind - 19th century.
Today' interior furnshings, together with a collection of specimens from nature and rich library, document the evolution of interior design and lifestyles from the 15th to the 19th century. A visit to the castle may be joined with a tour of the cementary of the owners in the chapel of St. Barbora.
