The castle is very nice to see. However, I recommend to take a guided tour. Having someone to guide you and explains history of this interesting castle adds lots of value. Normal ticket costs 40 zloty, the ticket with the guided tour costs 49 zloty.

Książ castle itself is nice, but once you're inside there is not so much to see. From the outside it's beautiful, as well as the gardens, but stables are the highlight of the trip. There are so many horses inside and they are so friendly!...More
