Książ Castle in Wałbrzych is a special place for many reasons. We know its huge scale, the interesting life history of their owners, or the unique cuisine created by Louis Hardouin. We also know about the nearby Lubiechowska Palm House or the Książ Stud of Stallions. But so far, only a few have had the opportunity to get to know the underground created under the castle during the Second World War. Because of all of this mentioned  Wałbrzych became the Lower Silesian capital of secrets. From autumn 2018, everyone can learn about their history. The routes and prices of the tour are already known.
