Castles - Lower Silesia - map, sightseeing, guide

Książ Castle, Wałbrzych

The strength of attraction of locks

Castles enjoy great interest among tourists in Poland. They work like a magnet. Each year they attract crowds of tourists. The most popular ones are sometimes even crowded, but still, it's hard to resist their charm. Personally, whenever there is an opportunity to see another one, I never pass by indifferently. I often plan a trip by deliberately weaving a palace or castle into it.
I know many people for whom traveling around Poland following subsequent castles is the main topic of the trip. Beautiful photos and nice memories are always created.
And who doesn't want to have nice holiday memories?

Map of castles and palaces - Lower Silesia

When planning a trip, the best tool is always a map. You have to start with the map. So I decided to prepare a map on which I marked the location of all the castles and palaces described below located in Lower Silesia.
Looking at the map, it is easy to see that the choice of castles in Lower Silesia is really large. It is a very grateful area to travel along the castle trail. Thanks to this map you will plan a fantastic vacation, surrounded by castle mysteries and secrets, or if you are somewhere nearby, you will easily find a place that is worth visiting.
Due to the fact that there are many objects listed here, I decided to give up broader descriptions. Over time, a separate entry will be created for each castle with a more detailed description, historical curiosities, etc.
Here, next to each of the facilities, I will present only a set of information most needed when organizing a trip. These will be: very short characteristics, GPS coordinates, information about parking lots, opening hours, visits and ticket prices. Only facts!
The GPS coordinates I have provided are in the form of active links. Clicking on them will start navigation on your phone and automatically find the best route. When traveling, just go to the appropriate part of the entry and click the GPS coordinates of the object (or parking lot) you are interested in. The rest will do itself. I don't think it could be more convenient!

I decided on this form of entry, because I checked myself that when planning a trip, I always miss these particulars in the entries. So I squeezed out all the "water" and it was "just thick".
I hope this post will be more helpful for you and will save you a lot of planning work.

The map of castles and palaces of Lower Silesia looks as below (the numbers on the map obviously correspond to the numbers in the descriptions below). Due to the fact that in the vicinity of Jelenia Góra the density of castles is particularly high, I decided to include this fragment of the map on an additional, enlarged fragment. So you will find two maps below: in the first one a wide area of ​​Lower Silesia with castles and palaces marked and a fragment of the enlargement. A bit below is the map of the fragment marked on the first map.

Castles and palaces in Lower Silesia

1. Czocha Castle

One of the most famous and media castles in Lower Silesia. For this reason, it is very crowded in high season and you need to reserve some time to queue for tickets. Out of season it is definitely more pleasant and if possible, I recommend this version of the tour. The building is undoubtedly beautiful, fantastically situated and impressive. The interiors are definitely weaker, the more that some of them are not available for sightseeing due to the hotel purpose. It is worth knowing this in advance, so as not to be disappointed with the interior, and decide to buy a ticket with an interior tour.
Hotel guests staying at the Czocha Castle enjoy special favors. Accommodation in the castle you can book here - [click]

The castle is located in Rudawy Janowickie and is surrounded by a forest on a rocky ledge. It has been integrated into natural rocks. Currently, it is in ruin and it looks simply beautiful!
You cannot drive to the castle by car. The closest access is from Janowice Wielkie, where you should leave your car. The green trail leads to the castle from here. First, in Janowice Wielkie you should go down Zamkowa Street, and then along the forest path.

Parking at the end of Zamkowa Street (for 2 cars), GPS coordinates:
In practice, this is not a regular parking lot, but rather a piece of wider asphalt at the end of a narrow road. The Zamkowa Street itself is very narrow and it is not possible to park there. However, you can try to drive up and check if the place at the end is free. It will save you about 10 minutes of walking on the asphalt.

8. Karpniki Castle

The castle in Karpniki now serves as a luxury hotel. The interiors of the castle are available only to hotel guests and it is not possible to visit it for non-guests. The building itself and the circumstances in which it is located, however, are worth visiting this place. The whole thing makes a fabulous impression. The body of the building, surrounded by an artificial moat filled with water and a medieval entry bridge ... I imagine that on a sunny autumn morning, when a fresh fog rises over the water in the moat surrounding the castle, the view must be otherworldly.

9. Castle of the Dukes of Oleśnica

A huge and very interesting facility, which now houses ... Volunteer Labor Corps. For decades, formal reasons (mainly ownership) made it impossible to visit the facility. The castle boasts unique on a European scale, original, beautiful terraces and cloisters. Fortunately, in recent years the facility has been made (at least in part) available to visitors. I especially recommend it to those who like places that have not yet become popular.

10. Siedlęcin Castle

The name is used interchangeably with Siedlęcin Castle The prince's tower in Siedlęcin and the latter name is more correct.

13. Palace in Mysłakowice

The palace currently plays an unusual role, as it houses a primary school. It is not open to the public and can only be viewed from the outside.
It kept its external form quite well, but the interiors were completely degraded, so even if it were possible to visit it, there is not much interesting to be seen.

19. Palace in Krobielowice

A beautifully restored, Renaissance-Baroque palace located in the picturesque Barycz Valley. The palace currently has a hotel with 41 beds. Looking at the size of the palace, it is easy to see that even with the hotel fully staffed, you cannot expect crowds 🙂
The palace can be visited from the outside and is partly open to the public also inside (there is even a permanent thematic exhibition illustrating the history of the Battle of Waterloo from 1815).
The palace is located close to Wrocław, and the room prices are encouraging (consider staying overnight). You can check the current prices and available booking dates on the booking page - [click]

Situated among the hills of Lomnica, the Staniszów Palace is one of the palaces that make up the "Valley of Palaces and Gardens" complex.

22. Schaffgotsch Palace

Located on the promenade and in the vicinity of the spa park in Cieplice, the Schaffgotsch Palace is an interesting facility, with beautiful, renovated interiors that… are not open to the public. Currently, the building is occupied by the Wrocław University of Technology. It was the activities of the University of Technology that led to the renovation of the interior of the building. Fortunately, the lack of accessibility to sightseeing, you can sometimes walk around and see the most beautiful of the palace halls. This is possible during conferences and celebrations that sometimes take place on the premises.

    A great entry encouraging you to spend a holiday vacation in Lower Silesia, it is worth taking care of a place to rest. Between Jelenia Góra and Szklarska Poręba, because in Piechowice there is a manor house with extraordinary architecture. Offering guests beautiful apartments with a view of the mountains, dining rooms, SPA zone, an outdoor swimming pool and a charming green area around the facility with a barbecue area and a waterfall.

    Only when can you accept it all. Not much life.... and there are still about a million five hundred and one hundred odd hundred ruins and smaller palaces in Lower Silesia itself
