Visit Moszna Castle

I've wanted to visit Moszna Castle for a long time, but there was always something else to visit. Finally, one day, I decided to take my family on a trip. Moszna Castle is located 200 km from my hometown, so I decided to kill two birds with one stone. We went to Opole and then to Moszna Castle. It's only about 30 km. 

How far is it from Warsaw to Moszna Castle?

The distance from Warsaw to Moszna Castle is 380 km.

I must admit that everything written on the Internet is true. This castle with its 99 towers really looks like a fairytale. Surrounded by a vast area with old trees and a playing fountain, it makes a huge impression on visitors. Not surprisingly that with so many guests, taking a good photo was a big challenge. We were there on a sunny Sunday while on holiday and this is one thing I would change if I could. I really recommend going there, but on a weekday. I think it's more peaceful and pleasant on a normal day.

The castle is actually a palace that belonged to the Tiele-Winckler family. Some interesting information about the history of the castle. In 1896, a fire broke out and partially burned down the building. Therefore, Franz Hubert von Tiele-Winckler began to rebuild it, partly in the neo-Gothic style, partly in the neo-Renaissance style. There is a cemetery in the palace park, which can be visited, and where family members were buried. In 1904, 1911 and 1912, Emperor Wilhelm II, the last king of Prussia and the German emperor, a representative of the Hohenzollern dynasty, was a guest of the palace. He used to come here for hunting organised by Franza Huberta von Tiele-Wienckler.

The castle survived World War II, but during the occupation by the Soviet Army, the interiors were destroyed and many paintings and sculptures were taken away. Now the castle is open to the public. A hotel and restaurant have been operating here since 2013.

I have to say that surroundings and a castle from outside present very charmly, even unique. But to be honest, the interiors of the castle didn't thrill my heart, did not make it beat faster. Maybe, because I don't like this kind of furniture, this style. Coffered ceilings, heavy furniture, too bulky for me.

Look at this coffered ceiling. In my opinion, it looks a bit overwhelming, too heavy. Photo by A. Rybczyńska

Nevertheless, I recommend visiting the castle. When you see it emerging from the trees, it will take your breath away.

A small but beautiful orangery with a fountain. It's worth stopping here for a while and taking a break from the hustle and bustle.
