It's well worthwhile visiting Arado. First of all have a look at the exhibits 50 feet above the entrance before starting the tour, which takes about 45 minutes.

There's plenty of light-hearted interaction and role playing for the first half of the tour through the tunnels. Then, towards the end, things turn very serious as the horror of what happened is told. I was impressed with how the switch in tone was done.

There's also an interesting display of artefacts at the end, including an Enigma Machine. Overall, fascinating and very good value for money.

Perhaps a little underwhelming to be honest. I temper that by saying that when we read it was a Luftwaffe project for developing a long range bomber our expectations were pitched a little high. Still it was another interesting chapter in the WW2 story.

This is a bit off the tourist path but after reading a magazine article about it, we decided to visit. We have only English and their website and the guide had none. If you have no Polish you will glean a little and then can read a bit more about it later.
The swastikas on gold bars meant something different to us, as a symbol of the wealth stolen by the Nazis. The tunnels were damp and dark with mock ups in various areas as well as displays of some well-rusted arms found there. At one point a guy in a Nazi uniform firing a cap gun came running up demanding (we gathered) to see our "passes." Wow, having a Nazi waving a gun and screaming in your face really brought home the misery the people under them must have suffered. I think each person will react differently to this experience so caution advised. I had to keep thinking "this is not real" to stay calm and overcome the adrenaline surge. I wanted to tackle the guy and point that gun right back in his face.
Enjoyed seeing the small museum with the enigma machine at the end. I did have a translation app that was helpful for deciphering some signs and placards.

It's well worthwhile visiting Arado.

It was very interesting visit and the guide was very involved. It is easy to note that he is passionate about WW II and the armour of those times. During the visit we had possibility for some interaction and role playing. There are some armour in quite bad state, but after all this years it is understandable,

There's also an interesting display of artefacts at the end, including an Enigma Machine (totally damaged, unfortunately, but it is also a replika there).

Nevertheless they should think of the option of the guidance in English and also the guy who plays Nazi should improve his German to be more realistic in his role. Also Gift shop should be located in separate room, not in the same place where the display is held.

I advise this attraction for famlies with children over 6 yeras of age because inside is very dark and the kids could terrified (during my visit someone was with children around 2 years old, and she cried all the time - 45 minutes). The ticket cost 17 PLN for an adult.
Even of some disadvantages I consider this place as very good and recomend the visit.

The "Arado project" is the most modern underground complex in Poland. Innovative illumination lights, audio effects and a guide that takes the role of an agent of the Polish intelligence and leads the group to get German secrets – are just some of the attractions that await tourists in Kamienna Góra.

The underground hides unique exhibits – elements of the V-1 missile and V-2 rocket, a German radar, and even the German enigma.

Kamienna Góra is located in Lower Silesia, halfway between Wałbrzych and Jelenia Góra. During World War II, this mysterious town was riddled with underground complexes like Swiss cheese with holes.

Today, we know about ten underground facilities located in various parts of the town. They were dug by the Germans (or rather forced labourers) to house the design offices and factories producing aerial structures and weapons.

At that time, Kamienna Góra was one of the centres of German aerial technology - the former textile factories housed, inter alia, the design office of ARADO company, which constructed the most famous jet of World War II - Arado 234 Lightning and the mythical airplane Arado 555.

Mr Maciej-tour guide is a great ambassador for Arado's project with his knowledge of its history.

He was knowledgable, stopped at some very special places on the journey and all the stops were intereting.

You will see more in my gallery-31 pictures from my visit.

Full recommendation!

This is a hidden gem and is definitely worth visiting. In the lower season small groups, we were only 2 so we had a nice private guided tour. Unfortunately it may be that you need to wait for a tour, they usually start at every full hour. Tour takes approx. 1 hour. In the lower season only Polish guided tours available. Be carefull on Friday's with parking - this is a market day on the nearest car park.

So, the word Arado refers to German project run to design and produce jet planes. It all started in 1917 and hugely accelerated when Hitler got into power - from that moment they concentrated on war aircraft, still with jet engines. It was all going good, manufacturers were going from strenght to strenght, till Nazi Germany troops started loosing on both fronts, and the allied forces started their carpet bombings, which put in danger the whole project. So they moved their factories to Kamienna Góra (Landeshut during German times), as this town was out of the range of allied planes and Germans never thought they would loose control over the town after the war. So they digged many underground corridors and halls to accommodate factories form other parts of their country. The plan was good, but not so much, as shortly Soviet and Polish troop took over this area, and new post WWII borders were designed in a way , that all these territory found itself under Polish administration. And former underground constructions were for many years closed for public, and treated as military areas. Only recently this place, now called simply Arado has become latest adition to Dolny Śląsk tourist attractions. Very small car park in front of the pavillion. Ticket office in new concrete WWI stylised block. Guided tour only. Some of their staff are dressed in Nazi German troops uniforms and they do suddenly appear in the middle of the tour, scaring people out, checking documents and so on, to give tourists real WWII experience. Definitely a must see. I would recommend after visiting thi place a short tour in the park just above Arado, where there's a lot of armament on display, randomly scattered by the paths, to extend the excitement.

We visited this place and it was a great experience! It was full of history and mystery! The guide was a young guy, very nice and talkative. The tour was very interactive. We loved this place! Just go there and search for the Golden Train!
