One of the best castles in Poland
Jul 2020 • Family
Unfortunately due to Covid-19 only 7 people an hour allowed inside so sold out by 12.30, so we just toured the grounds (pln 6 for 2 adults/2 kids!).
These have some very impressive trees - plane, beech, maple, line, oak etc. and a very nice tour. The orchid house was shut but has a very pleasant cafe in the courtyard.
The last owner of the castle (Alfred Potocki d.1958 France) left in 1944 before the Russians turned up. He loaded up 13 privately commissioned railway wagons with furniture and headed for Vienna and then steadily sold it to finance his lavish lifestyle.
I felt the English-style park could be enlivened with more statues and a small herd of deer.

Turn up (very) early
Jul 2020
Ok, the castle (or actually a palace) is very nice from the outside - basically the renovations are behind us. Lots of nice vegetation, although the formal garden at the back of the castle is at its infancy. And everything points at above-average attraction ... just one small problem. Management. No online sales. No reservation available. It is not possible to visit individual facilities (stables, coach house). So even when you turn up in the morning, you can expect about 3 hours of waiting. Most people choose not to. Well, we are in the 21st century after all. Management, it would be fitting to wake up!

Beautiful Castle
Sep 2019 • Couples
I came here last year whilst visiting the area.

The castle has beautiful grounds and stunning interior and some advanced technology for the time. You could spend all day in this area and have a picnic if the weather is nice. Relax on the stunning park.

You have to pay a little extra to see the top floor which was where the family lived. They take you around this part and each room has an audio guide with speakers. It's really worth visiting this beautiful castle and it's really inexpensive

Great interiors.
Aug 2019
We chose the audio guide which in my opinion is a good was of visiting the castle. I am a bit disappointed with the way they limit the space inside for the tourists with ropes. Sometimes it is difficult t see things through the doorway. I felt like that especially in the section where the horse carriages and horse harnesses are kept.
In the concert hall inside we were lucky to listen to the students of the local music school practising their pieces.

Beautiful castle ....under renovation.
Jul 2019 • Couples
This castle is totally stunning. In contrast to many other polish castles its interior is richly decorated and carefully restored. They also offer Audioguide tour what is more convenient for smaller groups. But what of it, if some kind of very brainy guy decided to make there construction site in the middle of the summer season. Congratulations!

Renovations are in full swing
Jul 2019 • Family
The castle grounds are being renovated as well as the castle being restored. The grounds are parklike with paths to wander. Some are under construction so use caution navigating. The angel oak is beautiful but needs some attention. But definitely something to see

One big construction site!
Jul 2019 • Family
Avoid! At least for now.. I Had high expectations as it was a part of our family trip.. We bought the tickets to both castle and stables..and it took 2 min literally to visit stables as you really cannot walk around! Everything is restricted so you can just have a look from the distance.. Massive disappointment! The castle is nothing more than a large construction site! It should be closed to the public. I took no pictures as itghh just looked awful.. I wish someone would have mentioned it upon paying for the tickets.. Once we approached the castle we're told to leave by camera bag in the locker. I wasn't happy about it as I had passports and wallets all in one place. There was no discussion about it therefore we turned away. We paid for our tickets and saw the construction site.

Beautiful jewel, a must see in Poland
Jun 2019 • Couples
Magnificent residence of one of the most important noble families in Poland, with great interiors, filled with furniture, chandeliers, porcelain and exquisite floor mosaics, a few important paintings and many family portraits. Grand in scale, with a large park, stable building, carriage house (under reno now) and orchids hothouse. We got tickets with a guide tour included. It was about 1.5 hour, of the main level, a bit rushed, with one group following another at a short distance. Quality of the guides varies, ours was barely audible, the next one (we just stayed behind) offered better information with a strong voice.

No option of buying tickets online, poor directional signage around the castle and the park.

Beautiful castle

A beautiful castle, a very nice visit and a glimpse into how aristocrats lived before the war. The museums of horse carriages and of icons are also very interesting, I recommend!

Currently a BUILDING SITE! I'm sure it will be beautiful WHEN OPEN!
Dec 2018
We recently travelled by taxi (73 zloty - around £15 each way) from Rzsezow to Lancut to see the Castle. The hotel booked the taxi for us - the taxi happily took us and dropped us off - neither being bothered to tell us that the place is under complete refurbishment until around 2020! We had checked on social media sites (including Trip Advisor) before we went. It's even saying on Trip Advisor today that it is open. Good Luck with that! We were left to wonder around an extremely muddy building site wondering why there was surreal Christmas carols being piped out of speakers at the rear of the empty, scaffolding-clad building. Very spooky and weird! By the way - we didn't visit on Christmas Day or any other day you might expect it to be closed. The majority of signs were in Polish - few catered for international visitors, except the large European Funding picture boards in the grounds explaining about the refurbishment. There were signs everywhere pointing to a non existent (not open) Ticket Office around the side - why weren't these covered with a sign saying NOT OPEN?! Lots of people seemed to be walking around aimlessly the same as us, trying to find a way in and looking very confused.
As you can imagine, it was a very disappointing, expensive and frustrating day out. If planning a visit any time in the future, I would get a reliable Polish source to first check it out and find out if it has re-opened. Do not rely, as we did, on social media/travel sites telling it was open. Maybe we should have tried the Tourist Information office in Rezszow before making the trip. They might have been better informed than the hotel or taxi drivers.
