day trip out of wroclaw

I will be in wroclaw for a few days next week and would like to spend a day out of town; which city or place to go to in a radius of about 2hours train ride? which city is nice, perhaps with a local market, christmas market? I thank you very much for your advice!

1. Re: day trip out of wroclaw

Hi. I can strongly recommend Kłodzko as a day trip. Train travel takes 1hr30mins, there are also many buses from Wroclaw (but trains are better in this case). It's a great small town located in the valley surrounded by the mountains. There is a small market square, the Fortress museum over the city, a lot of old tenement houses, underground tunnels, beautiful old churches and some restaurants where you can have lunch.

You canfind some more details here: tripadvisor.co.uk/Travel-g652069-c156378/Klo…

Check trains here: http://rozklad-pkp.pl/bin/query.exe/en? (from Wrocław Główny to Kłodzko Miasto, Kłodzko Główne station is a bit far from the centre but also ok - about 20 mins walking and the views are nice).

Some other sites about Kłodzko:

I don't think there will be a Christmas market there, in Klodzko the market usually starts just a few days before Christmas. But the one in Wroclaw is the biggest in the Lower Silesia region and one of the biggest in Poland so I don't think you would need another one ;)

Świdnica is another popular destination for day travels from Wrocław. It's also a small town with quite nice market square and a church protected by UNESCO. There will be a Christmas market in Świdnica from 13 to 22 of December. You can easily get there by bus, check schedules here: http://en.e-podroznik.pl/ (from Wrocław to Świdnica, bus travel takes around 1 hr).
