Tour Description

This tour offers you to discover the most precious attraction of Lower Silesia reflecting its complicated past.

Located just 70 kilometers away from Wroclaw, Ksiaz Castle is a real example of the mixed legacy of the region. Built by the local dynasty from Swidnica, descendants of the Polish royal Piast dynasty.

Those Silesian aristocrats became one of the most successful entrepreneurs in XIX century being a great example of the German industrial revolution. In the XIX century Hochbergs were one of the richest German and European nobles, therefore Ksiaz astonishes with its size and scale being a third largest castle in today's Poland.

You will visit the representative part, find out the history of the rise and fall of the family, hear about the incredible fortune, high society scandals, tragedies and why the castle still hides some secret from the World War II.

Continue on to the city of Swidnica.

It is a lovely provincial town with an outstanding history and sites. Outside of the city center you see the former family house of the world-known air force ace of the World War I - Manfred von Richthofen aka Red Baron.

Than pay the visit to the marvelous Church of Peace, the largest wooden church in Europe. Erected under very strict conditions represent a immense historic and artistic value, rightly earning its place on the UNESCO World Heritage.
