The Gardens of Flowers at the Książ Castle

Erected in the 13th century, Książ castle was home to many noble families such as the mighty House of Hochberg. Between 1509 and 1941, the Hochberg’s expanded the castle and significantly contributed to its splendor. During the World War II the castle was taken over by the occupying German forces. Under their reign numerous historic chambers were destroyed. The Nazis created a system of tunnels underneath the castle, which the function still remains a mystery. Recently the Książ castle made news as a rumor of a lost Nazi gold train was believed to be buried in the vicinity of the castle.  

After systematic looting committed by the German occupiers and later by the Red Army, in 1952 the renovation work was undertaken to restore the Książ Castle to its previous grandeur.

Today, visitors can admire the majesty of numerous chambers, terraces, the underground tunnel, and the magnificent gardens. From April 30th to May 9th, 2021 special floral arrangements will decorate the castle terraces and grounds. You can expect fountains, plant alleys and tunnels adorned with elegant and colorful bouquets and flower decorations.     

The area of the ticketed zone of the Flower Gardens in Książ will include a baroque honorary courtyard and French-style terraced gardens.
