Nowadays the large ruin of a castle with romantic coves of dilapidated walls and casemates harkens to a once unbreakable castle on a hill close to Novy Jicin. The castle was founded at the beginning of the 13th century by the Huckeswagen dynasty. The significance of the castle as a fortress declined after the Thirty Years War and it gradually fell into disrepair. In 1996 the community reconstructed the tower from which there is a beautiful view of wide surroundings. On the ground floor of tower there is a period restaurant. The period exhibition of arms and documents about the castle and estate of Starý Jičín lie on the upper floors. Period events and festivals take place in the castle.
