I love this castle - the atmosphere is calm and serene and very elegant. We visited the main castle, the armory and stables, and there was also a gorgeous collection of photographs depicting debutantes and noble persons from the beginning of the 20th century.

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.

I visited this castle several times as this is one of my favorite places to show to my foreign friends who enjoy and are more impressed by it than by the Wawel castle in Krakow and the normal tickets are only about 20 ZL/PLN / $6. I highly recommend the audio tour in English or other language as it very informative and costs only 10 ZL/PLN / $3.
We always see it on the same day as Auschwitz as its near by.

This large castle is set at the head of a beautiful park and borders the local town square. The tour was self guided with an excellent audio guide and information boards along the way. The armoury in the basement was an extensive collection over several rooms and was our personal highlight but the Mirror Room and the chambers of the prince and Daisy were also well presented.
Separate to the main palace are the stables which house a couple of old coaches and an extensive photography exhibition that complimented the castle tour.
The only drawbacks were the need to wear slippers for the tour and the number of security staff following your every move was excessive. Note that despite the website being silent bags of any size beyond a small handbag must be checked before entering.
Well worth setting aside a couple of hours.

This little gem of a castle (actually a palace) belonged for many years to wealthy German industrialists when this town was part of Germany and was called Pless. It eventually ended up in Poland after WW1 and was nationalized in 1946 by the Communist government, and it's been a museum ever since.
The rooms are beautiful and filled with amazing art, furniture and artifacts. Hunting was a great passion and some rooms are full of rifles, antlers and other hunting paraphernalia. Kaiser William 2 used to visit this place for hunting parties (the nearby forests were especially stocked with bison for him) and had special rooms set aside for him and his wife, Empress Augusta Victoria, which you can tour, as well as a map room from where he managed WW1.
Tickets are cheap so don't miss the special exhibitions upstairs and the armoury downstairs which cost a little extra. In addition you can visit the stables nearby for an extra price.

Came to pszczyna because we saw that there were a few things to do here. One of them was the castle museum and I must say I was very impressed with the amount of antiques on display.
I would recommend it to anyone who likes looking at such things and leading a bit about their history.

charming Castle. The rooms are nicely furnished, given a good idea of the then lifestyle. A huge park allows for a nice walk or bike ride. To top it all, there is a lovely small Skansen to add a plus to the visit. Highly recommended for a night over stop on the road from Cracow to Zakopane.
