On the outside you can see the castle that even being simple is very charming. Worth entering and pay a visit to the open halls visitation. The tour lasts on average 2 hours and you can enjoy art and architecture.

The castle is worth a look and there is also a really interesting exhibition downstairs about the rebuilding after the war and the efforts of the people to hide, protect and conserve it. My only criticism is the staff within the castle. I realise they are there to keep an eye on things but I felt really watched and even... More

It's a pretty castle and they have done a nice job replicating the original that was completely destroyed during WWII. One of the better landmarks in Warsaw.

Had a super visit here. Lot to see. Great presentation in the basement of the history of the building, one of those multi-media things. Very well done.

A wonderful place. A place of memory. And the most admirably is that the polish people succeed to rebuilt it after the bombardment from the Germans.

If you only want to see one of the castles, make sure it's this one. Beautiful palatial rooms, interesting history. Enjoyed this much more than Wilanow. Included in basic ticket was the tin-roofed palace (section at side of castle) which you should make sure you see. I think many visitors miss it but it is also well worth seeing.
