Although some areas inside of the castle were closed due to the private party, we still liked what we saw. I do agree with another reviewer that outside of the castle is impressive, no matter which side you look at. Castle is located in beautiful place and even though I would not recommend the cafe where we only stopped by to ask a question and encountered rather rude person working there, I recommend a visit to the castle.

Very nice and interesting castle with a colourful, even pictoresque history and some myseries around it.
The guided tour was very interesting, although only in Polish - and we were not proivded even a printed text in any language. I got on well (as I do speak some Polish), but it was a bit unpleasant for my wife. So that woudl definitely be an improvement recomendation - get texts ins English, German or Czech if not a guide.

This is an amazing old stone castle with many staircases and towers. The views looking at the castle and from inside the castle are amazing.

When we travelled to Zamek Czocha we realised the tours were only in Polish and that an English transcript was available. This did not bother us as we are happy to support first languages and are happy to read texts.

During the tour you had to stay with the guide in each room. The tour was very long in Polish and the text provided had no, or very little information. This made the tour very frustrating as we felt trapped and ignored.

We had been thinking of staying in the hotel and now feel relieved that we didn't do this, as they are clearly focussed on Polish tourism. That is fine, but as English speakers who support other languages, and have felt comfortable in all other Polish speaking locations, we felt uncomfortable. We would not have been comfortable staying at the hotel.

Surprisingly the torture chamber tour has signage in English and German and a multimedia presentation in English and German. I am not sure why this is not extended to the castle.

Czocha is one the most interesting polish castles ... it is not as big like it looks outside but is really worth acloser look. Guided tour through chambers is not boring as usually in such places and you won't regret a penny spent on it...

We visited this castle on a recommendation, when we arrived we were told we you could only go round on a tour. At this point they should told us it was only in Polish, as we ended up on a long tour that we had to follow and we had absolutely no idea what was being said. To be honest we would have just given up and left quietly, except they lock all of the doors behind you as you move from room to room!!! It is such a shame because the guide clearly knew a lot about the castle as she never stopped for about 1.5 hours. So disappointing, would not recommend it if you don't speak Polish.

Zamek Czocha was originally built 1241-1247. After centuries of political turbulence, followed by a fire which destroyed the castle in the 18th century, the castle was restored to its former glory. Restoration works are still ongoing. Recently, the castle has been used as the setting of the College of Wizardry, a live action role-playing game that takes place in the famous Harry Potter (book series) universe. It's definitely worth visiting and you can even stay in the castle too if you want since it also provides hotel rooms!

We visited for the castle tour and walk around the small grounds, which took approximately 70 minutes. The history of the building is very interesting, but the tour is delivered completely in Polish with no foreign language options so you may have to rely on google like me. The tour is still worth taking as you can admire the rooms, however the tour group sizes are very big which makes it difficult to enjoy the rooms so perhaps avoid a weekend. Towards the end, there is a long narrow stair climb into a tower, which if you are unfit or claustrophobic you may wish to skip it.
Tip: You can stay overnight in the main castle bedroom that you see on the tour. You need to call to book and currently it’s 1,000zł / €235 a night. You have the bedroom from 7pm to 9am.

When heading eastern part of Germeny in direction of Dresden, Misnia and Bautzen it is good to stay at least one night in Zamek Czocha. It looks impresive and well composed in the lndscape. With restaurant on site, parking space inside and various rooms quality it offers broad choice of selction to the travellers.
There are offered guided tours inside the castle as well an attraction corner with torture chambers.
Budget type hotel, preferred stay in upper comfort rooms, nice walks in souronding area or biking.

We stayed here during the College of Wizardry event. The castle itself was beautiful and had lovely views over the nearby lake. The castle actually had lots of secret passages to explore and an actual dungeon.
