The stone castle was built by the Zvolen county Donč at the beginning of the 14th century. It was one of the military facilities that guarded an important trade route.

Castle and manor Liptovský Hrádok

On a small hill by the river Belá on the outskirts of today's town Liptovský Hrádok in the north of Slovakia stands the Castle and Manor Liptovský Hrádok. Although there are several versions of the origin of the castle, it can be said with certainty that the castle was first mentioned in 1341. The stone castle was built by the Zvolen county Donč at the beginning of the 14th century. It was one of the military facilities that guarded an important trade route.

One of the legends even speaks of the connection of Hrádek by underground corridors with fortifications near Liptovský Ján and even with Liptovský Castle.
Later it became the seat of the administration of the castle estate, which was the property of the Hungarian kings until the middle of the 15th century. In the following period, it was held by donation or deposit by several owners (eg Zápoľské, Thurzovci, Ballasovci and others). It was severely damaged during the uprisings at the turn of the 17th and 18th centuries. It is currently under reconstruction.
In the 17th century, a Renaissance manor house was added to the castle, which after a recent reconstruction offers stylish accommodation and experiential gastronomy in the Magdalena Zai Restaurant.
