Castle Střekov is a medieval castle overlooking the Labe (German: Elbe) River valley in the Czech Republic.

It was built at the beginning of the 14th century to protect the important waterway and to collect duties.

Střekov castle enchanted many world known artists notably Richard Wagner who was inspired to write a poem that served as basis for the libretto to the opera Tannhäuser.
