Czocha Castle – #OdkryjDolnyŚląsk

Let yourself be enchanted by the mysterious Czocha Castle.

An obligatory point of every trip to Lower Silesia – Czocha Castle, was built as a guardhouse in the 13th century and has gained its current appearance over time. The ruling families scrupulously arranged the interiors according to the current trends, but the greatest metamorphosis was under the supervision of a well-known German architect, Bodo Ebhardt. It was he who, on the recommendation of the last owner of the castle, Ernest Gütschow, a visionary and millionaire, gave the enigmatic architectural form of the castle, placing in it, among others secret passages. The castle was to be not only a showcase of Gütschow, but also a kind of museum of works of art. The jewels of tsarist Russia rested in the treasury, and works of art decorated the chambers and corridors. Unfortunately, after the war, the building was looted several times, although to this day historians dream of finding a part of Gütschow’s considerable collection. Moreover, the maps and drawings show that it is possible! Thousands of square meters of underground have been documented, only some of which are uncovered …

Every year tens of thousands of tourists come here. – We approach our work with the utmost care. Our staff are history lovers who present the castle’s history and, of course, legends in an original way – invites Jarosław Kuczyński, director of the Czocha Castle. Because the Czocha Castle is an arena of countless legends. It is in the medieval guardhouse that the white lady appears, the alluring Ulryka, who sold her brother to the Hussites for a bag of gold. At the time of his death, the brother cursed his sister. As a punishment, her soul wanders through the dark corridors of the castle, hoping to be saved. Another ghost from the castle is Gertrude, who committed adultery while waiting for her husband on a delegation. The fruit of her love adventure was a child. When the husband found out about the betrayal, he ordered Gertrude to be thrown into the well and the baby to be walled up in the fireplace. To this day, apparently, those who bend over the well can hear the terrible groans of the unfortunate, and from the marble room you can hear the quiet wailing of a newborn. You will learn these and more legends from your guide as soon as you visit the Castle.

Not without reason, Czocha Castle is also called the Polish branch of Hogwarts. Children and teenagers can relax here in the atmosphere of the famous saga of a young wizard – Harry Potter. Additionally, there is an Institute of Magic in the castle, where magic workshops for schools are conducted. Fans of strong sensations will surely be interested in the Night Tour, because it is after dusk that the medieval fortress turns into a mysterious castle occupied by the spirits of its ancestors …

Czocha Castle is open to visitors all week from 10:00 to 18:00, and in July and August from 10:00 to 20:00. On the premises of the Castle, there is the Multimedia Torture Room, the Outer Castle Museum, the Room of Curiosities and the Riddle Room.
