Wonderful experience walking up to the castle ruins and then exploring the castle. Still it is a steep hike up about 2 KM . I am glad I did it, but it wasn't easy.

Very nice hike. It was crowded because it was a Sunday and it was sunny but it is worthy. Great views on Top of the tower.

A nice place to visit with family during weekend. It's quite typical castle for the region, but its location, the nearby woods and the scenery make it special. There is an awesome tree inside (sorry, don't know the name) - a nice place for the group photos.
...and there's also dragons, two of them!

A 600 m climb so take sturdy walking shoes. There are some pubs around but we took a packed lunch and some nice tables and benches to eat from halfway down.
Given to the German knight Schoff Gotsch by a German Princess, who was also the founder of the Schaffgotsch dynasty who owned the beautiful palace in Cieplice. They eventually had to leave Poland in 1945 after being kicked out by the Communists.
The castle was never seized but was abandoned after being hit by lightening. There are some very impressive views from the very top and the whipping post in the main square is interesting.

This ruined castle sits on a prominent hilltop with lovely views of the surrounding countryside. The challenge is getting to it. There are two paths and although the red path is deemed easy and the black path hard they are both quite demanding. Both are very steep in places and the only real difference one is a formal bricked path and the other a meandering bush track.
The substantial ruin had a large entry portal and extensive walls and battlements. It was a site of a small hunting lodge in the 1100s and quickly developed into a large stone fort. It was struck by lightning in 1645 and suffered significant fire damage.
We briefly toured the grounds which included a flogging post and a well. We then climbed one of the towers to the battlements which involved ascending several floors of spiral stairs. It offered lovely views all around the castle and towards the snowy mountains beyond.
Well worth the visit and the effort.

Caste in situated in a wood on the hill, built on solid rocks around it. Its worth to take a walk inside, cheap tickets. There are many trails, that lead to it. They have local beer, taste the best just after the walls. Turn right and go ahead just before the gate and You will find a good spot to take a break.

We were there on a sunny autumn day in October and it was brilliant. The hike up is a bit tough, but since the age span was from 6 to 70 we took our time.
Unless you are in really good condition I recommend taking the red route up, and if you are in ok/good condition take the black down. If you have a bit problems with balance or similar stay away from the black route! The red one is nicely paved and in good condition. The castle itself is OK, but not something extraordinary. If you decide to go up to the tower to enjoy the beatiful view from the top, beware that the way down on the spiral staircase is not for people with claustrofobia.
I can truely recommend visiting Chojnik

It was a nice midday hike under the shadows of mighty trees. Despite blazing sun and stifling heat, trees offered enough protection. There are 3 ways leading up, with 3 different difficulty level and all end in beautiful view over the valley.
