This is quite a cool place to visit if you are interested in what the nazis got up to with the riese project thing. Bring a translator if you have one because the tour is only in Polish. Most of the information can be found on the website anyway so no biggy. A ticket to the underground tour will set you back 20PLN. Tours run frequently throughout the day. It is quite cold inside the complex maybe about 13°C and the tour runs for about 45mins-1Hr. Wear some decent shoes because some parts of the tunnels have some puddles. And you get to go for a little boat ride! Yeeah!

The site belongs to a bigger project called Riese (= "giant" in German). The project consisted of 7 underground facilities: Jawornik, Soboń, Gontowa, Książ, Rzeczka, Włodarz and Osówka. The last three are accessible for tourists, Książ as well but only in a small part. There are 2 hypotheses as to what was supposed to be created here:
1) underground weapons factory,
2) Hitler's headquarters.

I've had a chance to see all 3 sites mentioned above and I have to say that this was the least pleasant experience, especially due to the organization of tours - it was chaotic and we had to wait. Fortunately, we got discounted tickets.
Definitely, they have a nice attraction - you explore part of the tunnels in a boat.

This is one of three sites of huge nazi Riese (Giant, Olbrzym) project, that are available for tourists. Long and narrow road, mainly through the woods, luckily good signage. Reception part hidden in woods. Many military vehicles from WWII era gathered on a small square in front of the underground part gate. Guided tours only. We managed to get there just before the closing time, and on that last tour of the day it was only us - two adults and a child, and they still took us in, didn't cancelled. Very interesting place, with so remarkable story told by the tour guide - he was really into the mystery of Riese and the history of local area. Quite long walks inside Włodarz hill complex, as you go into one corridor, right to the end, and then you have to go back, to get to another. Part of the complex is flooded with water, so there're boats available, which make this experience even more interesting. Definitelly worth a visit.

Got there in winter - need winter tyres and ideally 4x4. Place provide nice waiting area with hot drinks and snacks. Guide know what is talking about, they know that a place well but there is still lots of unknown to be discovered. Very recommended to visit, especially if you like history and mysteries.

The largest tunnel in the Reise Complex. Is also the most unfinished tunnel. Lots of side tunnels very easy to get lost if not for the guide.Was the first time we saw they had 2 levels in the tunnel. Very wet. At one point you have to take a boat. Get a feel of Third Reich history.

An exclusive interesting unusual , almost unknown site.
Going down underground, through tunnels which bring you to the closed past to 1940's years.
We made an independent guided tour inside. Very dark and cold, also a lot of stories, information and mysteries.
It is a 2 hours tour, could be more, and gives you something about the ideas and rationality why those tunnels had been created and/or been converted, at that particular site and for what purpose.
It is not too much popular place to visit for many visitors, almost unknown site, mostly for local people and closed countries.
A very strong feeling the visitors gets during the visit. Very recommended.

This object is a part of big underground complex called PROJECT RIESE build during WW 2 by nazi Germany.
This tour is definitely worth every penny and time.
Nice history lesson in unique place. Must see for ww2 and history maniacs :-)
