2. From Wroclaw: Full-Day Lower Silesia Tour

The Church of Peace in Świdnica is the largest timber-framed religious buildings in Europe, built in the former Silesia in the mid-17th Century amid the religious strife that followed the Peace of Westphalia. Constrained by the physical and political conditions, the Churches of Peace bear testimony to the quest for religious freedom and are a rare expression of Lutheran ideology in an idiom generally associated with the Catholic Church. Built outside the city walls, made of wood or clay and built in less than a year, now placed on UNESCO’s list of World Heritage Sites. Książ is the third largest castle in Poland, located on a majestic rock cliff by the side of the Pelcznica River. Beautifully surrounded by the forest at the height of 395 meters above sea level, the castle is often called ‘the Pearl of Lower Silesia’. Such a location corresponding to the size of the building is rare in Europe. In 1943, Hitler’s paramilitary organization had stormed into the castle and began to construct one of the most important quarters for Adolf Hitler. Complex Osówka is part of a construction project conducted by Nazi Germany between 1943-1945 (Codename Riese). Mysterious structures nicknamed “Underground City” still await to unveil their secrets. Discover Hitler’s last and biggest quarters in Lower Silesia.

based on 142 reviews

It was a perfect day. Our guide (and very careful driver) explained a lot of interesting things to us during the trip and was there for us at any time. Overall, it was a very relaxed day and although we saw a lot and there was also time for an extensive lunch, there was no stress or hectic pace at any time. The combination of underground tunnels, castle and Friedenskirche was very versatile.

Our very first Tram Tour proved to be a fascinating and unique experience and very informative of many interesting places to visit in Wroclaw. The guide was excellent and the tram driver drove the old tram through many streets changing the tram rail points on numerous occasions by having to get off the tram with a lever!

Much love to our driver Bart(?) He was so kind and really took care of us. The tour itself was as you'd imagine, unsettling and upsetting but probably something we should all take the time to experience just once in our life time.

This was a great way to see the city - the scooters are like electric trikes fantastic fun ! Michal was a knowledgeable guide with plenty of interesting stories about Wroclaw and the history. HIGHLY RECOMMEND!!

interesting and educational hour in the university building
