I was very lucky to have a tour with only 2 more people, and our guide was a lovely lady Ms Basia. The tour took 2 hours and was very interesting so I highly recommend to pay for the service ( or at least buy an audio guide). The interior and rooms are very beautiful and because the place was modified and furnished within years, you can also see great examples of different architectural styles and designs. I finished my visit with walking in the beautiful park. You can take pictures inside but they cannot be published.

Great castle with its highlights based on 18th/19th Centuries. Grand gardens, beautiful rooms with their original decor and furniture.
Unbelievable collection of arms in the lower level of the castle.
A definite place to stop by and enjoy what history has to offer.

This castle, meticulously preserved, showcases the magnificence of the time that this region was the playground of German nobility.

This was my 4th visit to the Palace. Up until now I have not noticed the staff there except that they were watching to ensure that you don't touch anything...fair enough.
Sadly on this occasion we arrived at 3 o'clock and purchased tickets. We entered and I asked for theaudioguides for all of us. Was told that we were too late! Too late for what? Obviously they were happy to sell us tickets, but then not to provide service.......my suspicion is that they had stored the audio guides for the day and wanted us to go through the palace without any information. I told them it was pointless walking through without the audio guide and was simply told" No".
So I told them we would not go through and wanted our money returned. At one point the boss even suggested we come back the next day!( We had driven 1.5 hours to get there).
Being Irish and stubborn I told the boss I wasn't going to leave until I received a full refund. It took 20 to 30 minutes but in the end they finally returned the money.
Its owned by the Government so don't think anyone reading this from the staff will care. But honestly a course in hospitality and service is definitely needed. They were all quite unpleasant. Pity, I would not want anyone to think this is a true reflection of the Polish hospitality......because generally speaking the Polish would be warm and welcoming.
As they say....the fish stinks from the mouth... I assume those in charge will convince themselves that they are right and I am wrong.

An amazing castle were 80% of the items there, are the original ones.
You can take photos with no flash.
You need around 1:30 hour for the whole tour.
Our guide was amazing and described with great details all the chambers.
Very beautiful: the dinning chamber that is now used for classical music concerts.

I was travelling in Southern Poland and Pszczyna was one of my top places to visit. We arrived at the hotel at night and in the morning waited until 11, the opening hour. It was Monday. We realized that on Mondays the entrance is free, but we didn't expect 10 school groups waiting at the entrance! Only half of the castle is open on Mondays, but that would be ok, if it wasn't for the fact that they let in 10 people at a time, every 10 minutes. There were about 40 or more people waiting at the door! We still wanted to wait, until a group of 30 4-year-olds came in...obviously the children would go before us, so the waiting time would probably be 2 hours!!!! Had we known that it's impossible to visit the castle on Monday morning, we would have planned the trip differently. This way, we didn't visit the castle and wasted half a day of our short holiday. The administration should put this information on their website.

Pszczyna Palace also known as the castle in Pszczyna.
This is a lovely old town, with a very continental almost Mediterranean feel. It was a fair distance from Tanowski Gori.
Pszczyna Palace is as good and as interesting as any of the best properties we have visited within the National Trust over the years. There is also a link with the UK, with Daisy, Princess of Pless (Mary Theresa Olivia; née Cornwallis-West; 28 June 1873 – 29 June 1943), who resided here.
We walked to a nearby park where there were several Bison, which we were able to watch being fed. There were also a number of other animals that represented the wildlife in the area not too many years ago. They appeared rather disinterested in us, unlike the mosquitoes who paid particular attention to my ankles.

The palace in Pszczyna is really well worth a visit if you are in Southern Poland and is easy to reach from either Krakow or Katowice. It took me about 3 hours to work my way through and every minute was enjoyable. Make sure to get an audioguide as it adds huge amounts of extra information beyond the very good written material presented (in Polish, English and German) in each wonderful room.

On my visit the staff in the palace were, without exception, very helpful, patient and knowledgeable. The lady at the tourist information point in the train station was also very helpful and clear in her directions to the palace and the other things to do in the town. Apart from the palace, the town has plenty to offer, like a small zoo, a folk village and a very pleasant central square.

A visit to Pszczyna is a very worthwhile day out.
