This castle, as opposed to the Czorsztyn castle, is definitely worth a visit. The castle, which the owners lived in until 1943, has rooms with original furniture. There are also photographs of the members of the last owners, the Salamon family. The view from the two terraces is beautiful. Also very interesting is the walk on the dam.

Niedzica Castle is a great site to visit in Poland. Better yet, you can actually stay at the castle overnight. We had a decent suite -- about 250 PLN for suite that included a separate room with a queen bed (for 2), a separate living room, which had 2 single beds, table, tv, bathroom. It was perfect for a family with 2 children. In the summer every Saturday, there is also a ghost show and fireworks. Setting is beautiful and you can check off 'sleep in a castle' off your bucket list. We then took the tour and castle visit the next day. We also took the boat ride around the moat.

יצאנו לדרך מזאקפונה לכיוון נידיצה, כמייטב המסורת פסחנו על הכבישים המהירים ונסענו דרך הכפרים והעיירות הציוריות של דרום פולין. הדרך הייתה פשוט נפלאה. מרבדים של ירוק ובתי עץ עם גינות מטופחות בצורה מרשימה הנעימו את דרכנו והנסיעה בת השעה חלפה לה במהירות. הגענו לטירה, במקום יש חניה מסודרת והכניסה לטירה היא בעלות של כמה שקלים. מלבד הטירה עצמה היא משמשת כמלון וגם כמוזיאון. במקום ישנו דוכנים רבים וגם כמה מסעדות אשר משקיפות על האגם ועל הסכר Zapora Niedzica. ניתן להתהלך במקום ולהתרשם מהאווירה והנוף המרשים.

We set off from Zakopona in the direction of Niedice, as we traditionally passed on the highways and drove through the picturesque villages and towns of southern Poland. The road was simply wonderful. Carpets of green and wooden houses with impressive landscaped gardens that made our way and the hour-long drive passed quickly. We arrived at the castle, there is an organized parking and the entrance to the castle is at a cost of a few shekels. Apart from the castle itself it serves as a hotel and as a museum. There are many stalls and several restaurants overlooking the lake and the Zapora Niedzica dam. You can walk around and be impressed by the impressive atmosphere and view.

I visited there today with my wife. As you are driving up to the castle, there are two parking lots, a lower one close to the lake and an upper one next to the castle. We chose the first one at the bottom of the dam. Excellent views but be prepared for a lot of stairs. The castle is small but nice. A few rooms have been renovated and have interesting displays and collections. Be sure to get the extra ticket to see the granary across the street from the carriage house. "Spychlerz" in Polish. There is a nice exhibition of traditional handicrafts and a recreation of a peasant's cottage. Besides all the cheap plastic toys and same souvenirs you can find everywhere else in Poland, there were a lot of people selling different kinds of homemade jams and honey. My wife recommends the rose petal one. It's made from the petals of a certain type of rose, ground with sugar. Thelady we bought from had samples to try if you aren't sure if you would like the taste. Another tip - come early. We arrived at 10am and left at noon, and it was getting really crowded with summer camp groups.

The Niedzica Castle, also known as Dunajec Castle is one of Poland’s prime tourist attraction. It towers over a large water reservoir with an impressive dam and an even more impressive and delightful view over the artificial lake.

It is still in great shape even though it lived in up through the 1940s.

Coming here was part of the rafting tour.
It was the first stop after rafting and there was time given to spend it as each one liked but unfortunately not enough to have both lunch and pay a visit to the castle.

We did manage to have a very short stroll to the opposite side of the Castle before lunch, but we were delayed at the restaurant since service was poor. The remaining time left was just for a few shots in a hurry on our way to the parking lot…not to mention that we were not totally sure where it was since we were dropped off much behind.

Yes, not many people know this, but you can rent a room in the castle itself.
There are a few "fit for a king" rooms in the castle proper, and apartments in the courtyard area.
I had the extreme pleasure of renting the former recently for the evening during the Brunhilda celebration, and was more than happy with the accommodation and the castle itself. The room actually consists of a sitting area with two twin beds, dining table, flat screen, micro-fridge, and electric kettle, and the opulent bed chamber with antique full size bed and sparse, but elegant, furnishings.
The apartments overlook the courtyard and have 3 twin beds, micro-fridge and electric kettle.
The castle in itself is a wonderful place to spend a few hours immersing yourself in history, but if you rent a room (200 złoty for the apartment and 400 for the castle room) you get to see more than the average tourist plus parking and admission to the castle museum.

Niedzica Castle, also known as Dunajec Castle, is a castle in Niedzica that once served as an important centre of Polish-Hungarian relations. The castle was erected between the years 1320 and 1326 by Kokos of Brezovica of Hungary on the site of an ancient stronghold. Over the years, the castle has had several owners. The last inhabitants, the Salamon family, remained at Niedzica Castle until 1943 when World War II forced the countess to abandon it. Today, the castle serves as a historical museum under the supervision of the Ministry of Culture. Niedzica Castle stands on a hill 300 meters upstream from the mouth of the Dunajec River at an altitude of 566 meters. Its architectural design consists of a densely packed complex of buildings with a courtyard surrounded by residential wings, towers, and fortified walls. Although in large part only ruins remain of what used to be the Gothic castle in Niedzica, its dungeons, well, and a number of rooms have survived, as have some paintings and furnishings. The museum holds archaeological artifacts related to the castle, remnants of the masonry that once adorned its interiors, prints and engravings with views of the castle from various periods, and historical documentation. The museum's collection also includes ethnographic exhibits from the Spiš region, a collection of antique clocks, 18th and 19th century pistols, hunting rifles, and taxidermied game. In 1996, a new collection was added. Because of the fortress's Hungarian origins, Ákos Engelmayer, Hungarian ambassador to Poland (1990-1995), donated his collection of Hungarian-related items. Among the donated items were maps of Hungary from the sixteenth to the twentieth centuries and several engravings depicting Hungarian kings, castles, cities, and battlegrounds. It takes about 90 minutes to fully appreciate Niedzica Castle. Views are magnificent, particularly to the south over the Pieniny mountains. Admission costs 12 zlotys a person. Finally, watch out for the ghost who haunts Niedzica Castle. Legend has it a former inhabitant was murdered by a treasure thief and appears nightly to scare anyone who comes close to the castle.

Niedzicy (the Polish word for castle ) on your GPS if you want to find it, the word castle will not bring up anything. Romantic setting, 8 zloty entrance, good lunch options on the two restaurants close by. Don’t miss the river rafting over the hill on Dunaje river ( border with Slovakia), located only 6-7 mid drive from the castle over the hill to the left of the lake facing south.

Visited and stayed in Niedzica Castle in August, 2013. Excellent museum. Beautiful lake view. Great staff. Felt like it was all to ourselves at night. The Lake cruise is terrific; rafting the Dunajez River; the wooden country churches; nearby Zakopane and the gorgeous Tatra Mtns are all fabulous. My favorite part of my first and wonderful trip to Poland. Warsaw, Sopot on the Baltic, Baranow Castle, and Cracow all great, too.
