About
Undoubtedly, the Royal Castle in Chęciny is a magic place. Recently, a complete revitalization of the Castle has been proceeded and the castle is now shining anew. During the day, wandering through the fortress, you will be surprised by the amount of attractions you encounter. Moving back in time come and see the castle's crew in historical costumes. Ferro Aquilae Team is inviting you for a dance. In the background, you may hear the clangs of swords and loud uproars. It is the knight's fights and arquebuses shots. In the yard of the lower castle, the armourer is precisely preparing the armour. Is the castle preparing for a siege? There is a Cage of Shame nearby which is awaiting for the prisoners and just behind it, there are enormous stocks. And in the dungeon? Long time ago there was a prisoner chained to its walls...In the treasury, the gold and the silver shimmers, the coins are falling out from the chests. The castle is old, but full of life! The Royal Castle is located on the Castle Mountain. In order to reach the ruins from the Chęciny centre, it is advisable to follow Jędrzejowska street, heading to the southwest to the car park at the foot of the castle. Next, follow the Royal Route up to the fortress' gate. You can choose another, more difficult trail to the castle - from the main square follow a stony road past the Chęciny Commune Office, turn right next to the church dedicated to Saint Bartholomew and head upwards following a steep path towards the castle.

The castle is a nicely restored and a great place to spend with kids. The castle is not big, but has lots of setups that remind of old times, like a punishment cage, a pillar and the like. Beautiful panorama.

On way from Warsaw to krakow we stopped into this castle for a visit . It was an enjoyable hour and half in a very nice setting . This castle has been restored perfectly and this is certainly a nice family excursion. We did the target practise for 2 zlofts which included 3 arrows . The castle has beautiful manicured grounds and a great view over the valley below . Plenty of parking and a walk of 800 metres ti castle from carpark. There is an incline and steps which would make it difficult for wheelchair persons though .

Great visit - thank you 🙏

We did a lot on the Eagle Nest Trail and still decided to stop here. Nicely restored, pleasant views. Leaving the castle we stopped over next to a surviving synagogue, which functioned for 300 years until 1939

I have seen the Castle several times. Last time we decided to take the Castle at night tour with guide Dominik. It was a great experience. It was a small group of us. Dominik was very informative. He made sure everyone had enough time to see everything and that everyone keep up with the group since you have to go up the hill and many stairs ( we had kids and elderly in the group). The Castle is a great place to see during a day, but it is an amazing adventure to take the Night Tour. The tour started around sunset and finished at night.

The castle was renovated a few years ago and it looks pretty good now. You can try on armour for free and you can try out archery for a small fee (2 zlotys). There's a nice view from the towers. Good for families with kids.

Last time we’ve visited was over 20 years ago.. there were just ruins (still magnificent) with no easy access to apart from field climb. The renovation Checiny Castle went through is amazing. It was a rather cold day but sunny with no clouds. View from the towers is absolutely stunning. We managed to take part in archery and overall had a great morning out.

This is a fairly small but we'll kept ruin with good information and amazing views from both towers.
There is a hidden Jewish cemetery near by that few people know about.

Great way to fill an hour or two on a Sunday afternoon

Visit if you are around anyway. The entrance is cheap, the view from the castle is nice. You can go up the tower but there are no rooms to see as I expected. Also there are some additional activities inside, for additional payment. Good for children.
