Książ is the third largest castle in Poland. This beautifully situated architectural complex is unique in the whole of Europe. The castle is surrounded by a large park and forest with great walking areas.
In the past, it was a meeting place for crowned heads, where the history of the aristocratic von Hochberg family is intertwined with the secrets of World War II…
Under Książ Castle during World War II, Hitler built a whole system of bunkers and adits, the purpose of which is still a mystery. The underground has recently been open to the public.
Visiting the castle can be divided into several independent attractions:
- visiting the castle and garden in the outer bailey
- night tour of the castle (see dates)
- visiting the stud farm
- visiting the underground
- visiting the palm house located approx. 2 km from the castle (convenient access on foot by a designated path)
At the castle do not miss the café “Chestnut Terrace” – great coffee and biscuits, by the way greet the owners from Greta :-).
