In 16th century, the castle was owned by the dynasty of Bilberstejn and the renaissance reconstruction took place. Later in 16th century, the owners of the castle were lords from the dynasty of Lobkovic – during this period, the southern part of the castle was built – nowadays, there are some farm buildings and a brewery. During the reign of Albrecht from Valdstejn, the castle Kost was his residence. In these days, the visitors will see the exhibitions of weapons, the torture chambre and a gallery of the dynasty of Kinsky – this dynasty is nowadays the owner of the castle.

The state chateau Lemberk
