Take the exit No.136 (Nove Sedlo) on the road No.R6 and continue 2 km on the road No.209, direction to Loket. After entering the town, you will cross the railway and you will see the castle. Continue on the main road so that the river and castle stay on your right hand side. After 2 km of beautiful sightseeing road, you will arrive to the Loket castle, through the Loket main bridge.
You can leave your car at the parking free of charge that you will find before entering the town centre at the petrol station or you can park on the main square closer to the castle (paid parking). Unfortunately, is not possible to park next to the castle.
If you would like to come by bicycle, you can take the national cyclopath No.6 that leads from Cheb, through Loket to Karlovy Vary and on. The path would take you mostly alongside the river and it is not very challenging. You can leave (and lock) your bicycle at the castle gate.
The Loket castle is without doubt the view point of the town itself and also of the paysage. Focus your direction on the castle tower and take any road or street that would lead you to the destination. You will surely easily climb the gradient road.
You can rent your own boat and come to Loket down the river. You can harbour your boat underneath the main bridge. Take the way up the stairs, it is the shortest path but beware of pirates and incursive raiders. You can take a shelter at the local paddler camp that you would find down the stream.
Take a train from Cheb or from Karlovy Vary (also Chomutov), change the train in Nove Sedlo or in Chodov, the train from there will take you to Loket which is the terminal station. You can see the castle right from the train station.
You can take a direct bus from Karlovy Vary, Sokolov or Horni Slavkov. Get out on the upper bus stop, next to the petrol station and cross the bridge. All roads on the left hand side will lead you to the castle.
