Discover the largest of Hitler's secret headquarters in Lower Silesia on a full-day tour to the underground complex of Osowka from Wroclaw. Visit historic Ksiaz Castle to see the beautiful gardens near the medieval city of Wałbrzych.
What to Expect
Enjoy a full-day tour of Lower Silesia from Wroclaw that combines the beauty of one of Poland’s most stunning castles with the spooky underground complex of Adolf Hitler’s “Riese Project.”
Head first for the large town of Wałbrzych, just 6 miles (10 kilometers) from the Czech border. Overlooking the city is beautiful Ksiaz Castle, built in the 13th century under the rule of Bolko I the Strict.
Located within the protected Książ Landscape Park, with the Sudetes Mountains in the background, the castle is one of the largest in Poland and full of towers, antiques, and beautiful gardens to explore.
Next, visit the curious underground complex of Osówka, part of Hitler’s "Riese Project," the codename for the project in Nazi Germany. Started in 1943, it included a massive network of tunnels and halls under the Sowie Mountains, a fraction of which can be seen and investigated by the public.
