All the other reviews mention the story of this church, so I'll pass it. However, it is worth to mention that there is no a single nail in this wooden stave structure.  The parking around is very tricky, because of the very steep hills around....More

Beautiful church in a scenic location with a great story behind it: a Viking church from the 12th century that was moved here in the 1840's by a Prussian king.

Quick note: Built in 12th century, relocated from Norway to Karpacz in 1800. There are only 28 stave-churches like this (most of them in Norway), but it is said that this is the best preserved one

Wang Church is spectacular example of XII Scandinavian wood churches. It was bought in XIX century by German king and transfered to Karpacz. Beatiful sculptures and other elements of ancient Norwegian culture mixed with local architecture annd old cementary.

Wonderful church from 18 century worth to be seen at any time of the year. Probably most people would recommend to visit Vang at May June when rhododendron surrounding the temple gardens blooming.

Very nice, antique wooden church built in Norway - originally in 12th century, brought to Karpacz in the mid-18th century and rebuilt. Currently remains one of most recognized and visited monuments in Karpacz. A must see.

If you are going to visit Karpacz, you should see Wang Church. The only thing was that there is no information in English.

If you Scandinavian then it probably makes no difference however this is wonderful place located in great scenery. Consider 2 h stop if you planning your hike trip tough. This is also gate to Karkonoski Park Narodowy - so easy entry to mountains trip

The church is really worth to see, but you must be warned that the today's church differs from the original Vang stave church.The number of the genuine parts is rather small. The place is always crowded and when you plan to see the church's interior,...More

From what I had experienced, there are Buses running as I had noticed while 'fast tracking' down the winding and medium sized bitumen road leading to Karpacz from Wang with my mountain bike. What fun and exhilaration... More
