Full description
Begin this full-day tour of the Lower Silesia with a visit to the magnificent Ksiaz Castle, undoubtedly one of the greatest monuments in the region. The 3rd largest castle in Poland, it is also known as “The Pearl of Lower Silesia,” and is nestled in the picturesque valley of the River Pelcznica. The castle boasts many different architectural styles. Its chambers once hosted distinguished guests, such as John Quincy Adams (one of the U.S.'s first presidents), Winston Churchill, and the emperors of both Germany and Russia. 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 holds some mysteries.  The final site on your tour is the marvelous Church of Peace in Swidnica, rightly earning its place on the UNESCO World Heritage Site list. A magnificent masterpiece of sacred art, it was originally built by the Protestants out of wood, straw and clay in the 17th century. Swidnica is also the birthplace of World War I air force legend Manfred von Richthofen, also known as the “Red Baron.” You will have the opportunity to see his modest house.

    Es war ein perfekter Tag. Unser Guide (und sehr umsichtiger Fahrer) erklärte uns bereits während der Fahrt viel Interessantes und war auch vor Ort jederzeit für uns da. Insgesamt war es ein sehr entspannter Tag und obwohl wir viel gesehen haben und auch Zeit für ein ausgiebiges Mittagessen blieb, kam zu keiner Zeit Stress oder Hektik auf. Die Kombination aus unterirdischen Stollen, Schloss und Friedenskirche war sehr vielseitig.
