Virtual Poland- Książ: Jewel of Lower Silesia

This Medieval residence of princes, redecorated in the Baroque style by its later owners, is in the same league as the most significant Polish castles, sitting right next to Wawel and Malbork.

Hills surround this impressive construction with a large garden complex. The gardens catch the eye with their sophisticated flowerbed arrangements. Elegantly decorated Maximilian’s Hall and the Princess Daisy apartments astound with their Baroque style. Daisy von Pless was one of the most intriguing figures to have lived in the castle: remembered not only for her charm and beauty but also for her pacifist stance during both World Wars. Night sightseeing tours of the castle are especially exciting.

These days, Książ offers luxury hotel accommodations and fine dining in its restaurant. It is also a venue for exhibitions and festivals, among which the most interesting ones are the “Festival of Flowers and Art” held in May and the “Princess Daisy Ensemble International Festival of Chamber Art.” A regular tour of the castle also includes a fragment of a mysterious tunnel constructed by Nazis during the Second World War.

A stunning panoramic view of the castle is now available, as is the comprehensive information portal.
