How to get here? 
By car/bus 
the asphalt road leads from Častá and Píla villages (you need to orientate according to information traffic signs), the road is also appropriate for buses. You can park just near the castle on a free unwatched car park. 

By bus SAD
the SAD bus stop is just in front of the castle at the beginning of the castle meadows. The buses which stop here are available on www.cp.sk – for searching use the phrase “Častá, Červený Kameň”. Much more buses stop only in Častá village – the nearest bus stop to the castle names Základina. There is a two kilometres walk ahead of you from this bus stop, it leads a mild uphill asphalt road through the village and forest to the castle. 

By train
the nearest train stations are in Trnava (about 25 km far) and in Pezinok (about 15 km far). By foot: a yellow and green tourist sign leads around the castle – the yellow one on the way from Zochová Chata to Častá village and the green one on the way from Modra (through Harmónia) to Sološnica. Just look into good touristy maps and you can start to walk through forests and meadows.
