The Gothic castle was built on a small island at the western end of a small pond. It was accessible only over the 30 metres long bridge. Based on the Gothic remnants discovered in the cellars the castle had a regular five-sided groundplan which was preserved until the baroque reconstruction. The old plan that depicts the condition right before shows that the renaissance reconstructions surrounded the complete five-sided circumference with built-up area , two sides were completed with an arcade gallery. During the baroque reconstruction the western wing was shifted outside the original groundplan of the castle and the bent northern wing was replaced by a new straight one which thus lined up the groundplan of the château into almost a regular rectangle. All courtyard was surrounded with a pillar arcade gallery, over the passage way there was erected a prismatic tower with a clock. Leading to the decorative entrance portal there was a new stone bridge with two arcs constructed. The facades were divided with piliasters of high order on the corners and in tripple-ax risalit they were completed with vertical decorative stripes. The adaptations at the time of Haugwitz family concentrated above all on interiors, the older French park was changed into an English one.
