Wleń. Castle

Wleń Castle is also called Lenno (Fiefdom) Castle. It is a marvelous sightseeing spot by the way from Jelenia Góra to Lwówek Śląski and Bolesławiec. The history of the hill and its castle is very long and reaches 10th century – the time of the first castle guarding the Polish-Czech border (in the reign of Bolesław Chrobry). More about the history of the castle on the Polsih site >>

In 2006 one of the walls colapsed and the castle was fenced and closed for the public. The renovation lasted from 2009 to 2011. Since 2011 it is again open for the tourists.

The castle is built on the height 360 m above sea level on a hill in the Bóbr Valley (bóbr = beaver, here it’s the name of the river). It is possible to walk uphill from the direction of Wleń or Łupki. By car, it is the most convenient to turn from the main road Wleń-Lwówek uphill in the Łupki direction:

The best place to leave your car at is near Lenno Palace. From the car park there is a comfortable road leading from the car park, along the palace walls and then next to St. Jadwiga’s church. The whole walk to the castle takes no more than 20 minutes at a leisurely pace.

Visiting the Wleń Castle is free of charge and not time limited.
