Staniszów – the Castle of Henry (Heinrich Schloss)

One of the owners of Staniszów - Count Heinrich von Reuss XXXVIII commissioned the building of a hunting-castle in the natural park surrounding the local palace. The construction started in 1806 on Grodna, the highest peak in Wzgórza Łomnickie (506 m) situated between Staniszów and Marczyce. According to the design the site was to constitute the artificial ruins of a medieval fortress. The romantic ruins were to become a place for feasting after hunting, a destination to walk to and an observation point overlooking the Karkonosze. The project was completed by the Prince Henry XII in 1841. The Castle of Henry is now one of the most interesting local attractions. The Neo-Gothic tower and the perimeter walls have survived to this day. The ruins are situated between Staniszów and Marczyce.

How to get there:

By car from Wrocław to Jelenia Góra, then along Mickiewicza Street to Staniszów. You can use the Polbus services (former PKS) - there is a direct connection from Wroclaw to Staniszów Palace which is near the Water Palace. The site is situated in the lower part of Staniszów village.

From Staniszów (from the church) one must follow the yellow trail (about half an hour’s walk), or from Marczyce the blue trail (this option is difficult due to the steep slopes of the mountain). The Castle of Henry is also accessible from Sosnówka, where the trail is also marked.
