Originally renaissance chateau was built in the 16th century for Oldřich Krajíř z Krajku, last member of house of Krajíř. There were several owners after Oldřich's death (in 1600). Chateau was rebuilt several times and in the 18th century also got the baroque appereance. However in the beginning of the 19th century the chateau Dačice was rebuilt in the classicist style and became the representative residence of Dalbergs.
The Barons of Dalberg
One of the most important owners of the chateau were the Barons of Dalberg, the noble family from the castle (now a ruin) Dalburg in Germany. Thanks to them the chateau you can find for example mineralogical or butterfly collection and also and mainly the large book collection (24000 pieces in two libraries).
Art enthusiasts will definitely appreciate the portrait of poetess Therese von Dalberg by well-known artist František Kupka. Also thanks to the house of Dalberg, the chateau park was remade to its present style of an English nature landscape park.
