Our Breath of the Wild Interactive Map has the locations of all 900 Korok Seeds found in the game. It allows you the ability to zoom in and out, mark which ones you’ve already collected, and also find all the other goodies surrounding the seeds.
Below is a listing of just the 25 Korok Seeds found within Hyrule Castle. You can check out our Korok Seed Locations guide for a full listing by region.
Korok Seed #1: Located underneath the bridge that extends over the Hyrule Castle Moat, at the entrance of Hyrule Castle. Here you will find a yellow flower and after collecting it, a series of yellow flowers will appear along the east side of the bridge. There is a Guardian Skywatcher in this area that can ruin your day so you might want to defeat him or just be careful. The trail of flowers leads to the east side of the entrance gate.
Korok Seed #2: Found on top of the entrance gate by the bridge that extends over the Hyrule Castle Moat. Watch out for the Guardian Skywatcher and climb up to the top of the gate. Lift the rock here to get the Korok Seed.
Korok Seed #3: From the front gate entrance of Hyrule Castle, if you look straight ahead and a big higher up, there is a Coat of Arms stone display with the Hyrulian Crest on it. While the main path turns to the left a bit, this stone display is directly ahead from the front gate. The best bet is to use Revali’s Gale and then shoot the crest with an arrow to get the seed. Sometimes it is a bit fidgety, so it might take a couple shots.
Korok Seed #4: There is a pinwheel located immediately next to the previous Korok, just above the Coat of Arms stone display. From the front gate entrance of Hyrule Castle, you need to go straight ahead. While the path turns to the left, there is a gate higher up and straight ahead. There is a treasure chest here that contains some ancient arrows, but right next to it, is a pinwheel. Stand next to the pinwheel and a balloon will appear off in the distance. Aim just above the balloon as it is quite far so the arrow can drop down and hit the balloon to get the seed.
Korok Seed #5: Located just above the previous two Koroks. From the front gate entrance of Hyrule Castle you need to go straight ahead. While the path turns to the left, there is a gate higher up and straight ahead. Climb to the very top of this gate and you’ll find the area is surrounded by malice. However, there is a pinwheel here towards the front. Once you walk near it three balloons will appear, slightly hiding behind the malice. Shoot the balloons once they pop their heads out to get the seed.
Korok Seed #6: Located under a rock on one of the higher walls. Just southwest of Hyrule Castle there is one of those massive pillars that extends towards Hyrule Castle. The small rock is on the wall that is right in line with this pillar.
Korok Seed #7: When you first enter the Hyrule Castle region, the road turns to the left and you’ll see a spire ahead. This is the First Gatehouse building and the Korok Seed is located all the way at the top. Climb to the very top of the spire and examine the sparkling leaves to get the seed.
Korok Seed #8: The Korok Seed is located within a corridor underneath the First Gatehouse in the Guards’ Chamber. There is a waterfall just south of the First Gatehouse and this leads to an entrance into the Guards’ Chamber. The gates are blocked, but you can use Cryonis on the water beneath them to raise the gates, allowing you to enter. The path leads to a hallway where you’ll fight an enemy Lizalfos. Continue down the only other passage and you’ll make it to the Guards’ Chamber. The Korok is actually located in the hallway that leads to the Guards’ Chamber. From right when you enter the Guards’ Chamber, turn around and head back towards the hallway. Straight ahead you’ll find a bombable wall. Knock it away with a bomb and then shoot the acorn to get the Korok to appear.
Korok Seed #9: From the front gate entrance of Hyrule Castle you need to go straight ahead. While the path turns to the left, there is a gate higher up and straight ahead. Just beyond this gate and a bit higher up there is a waterfall. Make your way to the waterfall and equip the Zora Armor if you have it. Swim up the waterfall and then glide back and to the left side of the waterfall. You might grab hold of the wall and need to climb up a bit, but you will find a bombable wall. Blast it open with a bomb and lift the rock to get the seed.
Korok Seed #10: Just to the southwest of Hyrule Castle there is a massive pillar that points towards the castle. Line yourself up with this pillar and drop down to the lowest platform, near the Hyrule Castle Moat. Here you will find a bombable wall and it leads to the West Passage. Jump into the mine cart that is found here and use bombs to travel across on the rail. Once the cart comes to a stop, get out and walk ahead to find a hot spring with three statues. Two of them have hard-boiled eggs in them. Drop a Bird Egg into the small pond in front of the statue and after a moment the heat will turn it into a hard-boiled egg, causing it to match the other two eggs and allowing the Korok to appear.
Korok Seed #11: The large spire at the west side of Hyrule Castle is Princess Zelda’s Study. Much lower down and a tad closer to the moat, you will find an entrance to the underground portion of Hyrule Castle. To the left you will find the shaft of the Study extending underground. Here you can drop down all the way to the bottom of the area and it will eventually lead to the Lockup. About halfway down this area, there is a small rock against the wall near the shaft. Lift this rock to get the Korok seed.
Korok Seed #12: The large spire to the west side of Hyrule Castle is Princess Zelda’s Study. There is a bridge leading to the center of the Castle from there and one floor below is Princess Zelda’s Room. You can climb a series of staircases below Princess Zelda’s Study to reach her room. Once you do, walk out onto the balcony and lift the rock here to get the seed.
Korok Seed #13: The large spire to the west side of Hyrule Castle is Princess Zelda’s Study. You need to climb up to the very top of the spire and examine the sparkling leaves to get the Korok seed. I recommend using Revali’s Gail if you have it.
Korok Seed #14: There is a large outer wall that extends across the west side of Hyrule Castle all the way to the northwest side. It is found above the Lockup portion of the Castle. At the far north end of this wall, at the top you will find a pinwheel. Walk up to it and several balloons will appear. Shoot all the balloons to get the seed.
Korok Seed #15: At the northwest side of Hyrule Castle, on the map you can see that there is a part where water gets closer to the center of the castle. Just to the northeast of this water path, on the higher ledge you will find a lone rock. Lift it up to get a Korok Seed.
Korok Seed #16: Directly north of Hyrule Castle is a very large pillar that points right at the castle. Just in line with this pillar, there is a bombable wall at the north side of the castle. It is way up there, and you’ll need to climb up or use Revali’s Gale to get to this height. There is a clear pathway in this area that has a rock overhang with windows in it. You can climb on top of these rocks and the bombable boulder is just a bit further up.
Korok Seed #17: At the northeast portion of Hyrule Castle there are a trio of waterfalls that leads down to the Hyrule Castle Moat. If you swim up two waterfalls, just before you swim up the third waterfall you will find a circle of lilypads. Dive down right into the circle to get the seed.
Korok Seed #18: Just southeast of Hyrule Castle there is a large pillar that points towards the castle. It points right to a waterfall and a bit to the west of the waterfall, there is a breakable boulder on the floor. Blast it away and then lift the small rock to get the seed.
Korok Seed #19: Just southeast of Hyrule Castle there is a large pillar that points towards the castle. It point towards a waterfall and just to the right of the waterfall, there is an entrance to the Castle at the Dining Room. Once you enter the Dining Room, walk straight ahead to get to a hallway with red carpet. Continue walking directly ahead along the stone pathway and take the first left. In this corridor there is a bombable wall on the left side. Blast it away with a bomb and look up to find an acorn hanging from the ceiling. Shoot it with an arrow to get the Korok Seed.
Korok Seed #20: Found at the very peak of the spire that is on top of the Second Gatehouse. Use Revali’s Gaile to quickly reach the top of the spire and examine the sparkling leaves.
Korok Seed #21: Directly east of Hyrule Castle, there is a single entrance at the very bottom of the region and it leads to the East Passage. Make your way here and then jump into the mine cart and ride it along. You will find a few blocks of ice just off to the right. Melt the large block in the center by using a fire weapon or shooting it with fire arrows. Examine the sparkling leaves that are left behind to get the seed.
Korok Seed #22: Directly east of Hyrule Castle there is a waterfall that leads down to the Hyrule Castle Moat. You want to climb up, right in line where this waterfall is. Much higher up, on the north side of the crumbled outer wall, there is a small rock. Lift it up to get the Korok Seed.
Korok Seed #23: Just above the front entrance to the Sanctum, there is a seed platform on top of the balcony. Step on the small stump and quickly glide over to the nearby spire to get the Korok Seed.
Korok Seed #24: On top of the Sanctum is a tall clock tower. Climb up or use Revali’s Gale to reach the clock tower and inside you will find a large bell. Just above the bell there is a lone balloon, so shoot it with an arrow to get the seed.
Korok Seed #25: Climb up to the very peak of Hyrule Castle, on top of the spire, examine the sparkling leaves to get the Korok Seed.
