Magnificent example of an early baroque aristocratic residence was refurbished in the late 18th century to become a lavish artistic salon, which played host to such famous guests as Louis XIII of France and Emperor Franz Jozef of Austria.

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!

This is a review about TRYING to visit this place. We visited Rzeszow and were recommended here. The website doesn't work. Always saying there are no tours available. On ringing, they didn't understand my English. I got the TI in Rzeszow to call them. They said get here at 0845, and we will try to fit you in as we only book group tours. ( its half an hour away in actaxi). What sort of outfit is this? Everywhere else in Poland, we have been met with graceful hospitality and genuine interest. Give this one a miss if they can't be bothered to accommodate you

Stayed at the castle for two nights in november,its a bit like going back fifty years in time, big rooms and very quaint.
The staff are polite and very helpful my only criticism was the central heating which was overcome by an additional duvet.
Good restaurant on the same site exceptional value for money

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.

It is a beautiful castle in a lovely garden - but the museum is grossly mismanaged. We had to visit it on Monday: no entrance fee, but a ban on guides and absolutely no explanations as to what one sees. The same applies to the horse-carriage collection. The only sign was a misspelled info that the rest room costs some money.

Also: the ridiculous requirement of wearing awful overshoes, clearly a reminder of times past.

In brief: a potentially great place grossly reduced by the management.

This is one of the immense aristocratic residencies of Europe. We arrived in a rental car and parking next to the castle was a huge problem. Apparently parking is free and you can park pretty much everywhere. Finding the actual place to purchase our tickets was a somewhat of a challenge too. We expected huge crowds inside the castle, but we were nicely surprised. There were not so many people inside (there were huge crowds and schools groups everywhere outside). You have a choice of visiting together with a group with a Polish speaking guide, or with an own audioguide. The audioguide is slightly too detailed, but we enjoyed our visit. You can spend good 3 hours inside this castle and still not be done. Each room has its own character. There is also a lot to see in the park outside. We skipped the other museums due to lack of time, but I hear they are also amazing.

Lancut Castle is one of the well preserved historical buildings in Southern Poland. It is all about the noble family of Potocki, their lives and contributions to the culture.
Castle is also surrounded by beautiful gardens where both tourists and couples can be seen enjoying them.
If you happen to visit the castle, do not miss the opportunity to visit one of the most beautiful collections of horse drawn carriages. With over 50 carriages, there definitely is one for you to like.
We parked at the local square, just about 100 yards or so outside of the gardens.

Łancut Castle is a fortified baroque complex located in the little town called Łancut, in the southeast part of Poland, near the border with Ukraine. It is a big and very beautiful palace surrounded by a very nice park, which I recommend visiting in autumn due to the colour of trees: amazing! It is very beautiful walking and you can relax and see all colours in the park.
The main palace is a very big and impressive building. We decided to do a guided visit and we could see a lot of rooms, which were fantastic, like dancing room, the theatre or mirrors room. Really it is a recommended visit in the zone! Moreover you can visit stables with a lot of nice carriages and learn about the history of the place and the people, who lived here. Other place, for me not too much interesting, is the greenhouse, where you can see some plants and aquatic animals.

So nice to spend time in this castle which is not overrun with tourists, but full of history. You really get a sense of the Polish aristocracy which was almost lost in WW2.

Lancut castle is truly a hidden gem! It requires travel to the Rzezsow area about 2 hours east of Krakow on the E 40. Tickets cost about 1/3 of what you pay in Krakow for Wawel castle. There is much more to see in Lancut as all of the rooms are beautifully furnished. The crowning glory is the beautiful inlaid wood floors. There are more than 20 intricate designs to be seen in the many rooms of the castle. There is also a very good restaurant with really excellent prepared food at ridiculously low prices. A good sized helping of smoked salmon served over a crispy potato pancake with salad cost $6! A half liter beer is $1.60.
