Know More about this tour

Lower Silesia is a fascinating region. With its turbulent past, interesting culture and incredibly beautiful landscape make it one of the most visited voivodeship in Poland. Unique place for an excellent day journey that offers plenty to explore.

The Church of Peace in widnica or Jawor – the largest timber-framed religious buildings in Europe, were 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.

Ksi – 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 395m above sea level, castle is often called ‘the Pearl of Lower Silesia’. Such location corresponding to the size of the building is very 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* – Part of impressive construction project conducted by Nazi Germany between 1943-1945 (Codename Riese ). Mysterious structures nicknamed “Underground City” still await to unveil their secrets…Discover with us Hitler’s last, main, biggest and most elaborate quarters in Lower Silesia.

Gross-Rosen in Rogonica* – The biggest Nazi German concentration camp in Lower Silesia. Dozen thousands of prisoners died in it. Poles, Jews, Russians, Frenchmen, Hungarians.

    Razem z moimi znajomymi z zagranicy postanowiliśmy wybrać się do Wrocławia. Wiadomo - odreagować, a przy okazji poznać atrakcje stolicy Dolnego Śląska. Informacje o Day Tours znaleźliśmy na stronie seewroclaw.com Spośród sporej liczby oferowanych wycieczek zdecydowaliśmy się na objazdówkę po Dolnym Śląsku. Przewodnik biegle mówił po angielsku. Dostaliśmy też nagrania do odsłuchania. Cena wycieczki była zdecydowanie adekwatna do tego co zobaczyliśmy i czego dowiedzieliśmy się. Ze swojej strony zdecydowanie polecam!

    Booked a private day tour for myself and my wife. The guide was very friendly and the tour was in a spacious 9 seater minibus. All locations were fantastic to see and have a huge history behind them. Bring a good camera. Only downside was visiting the Complex Osowka, where the small group tour was by audio guide in English or by a person speaking only in Polish. If there was an option to pay extra for an English guide, I would have, given the history of the place as the Polish guide appeared to have a wealth of knowledge we could not tap into. I would recommend this tour to anyone visiting Wroclaw.

    Picked up and dropped off on time, easy transition to and into the 3 destinations and audio tours for the castle and underground 'city.' Entertaining driver with a running history and current news on the local area.

    pick-up by time, very nice guide speaking good English, vast knowledge,arriving by time to every stop point of the route. Generally a very good tour

    Arranged tour only the day before. Picked up by Martin, English speaking tour guide & driver........very helpful and friendly young man. Church of Peace in Swidnica was our first stop...........totally amazing even if you're not into churches - a must see. 2nd stop was Ksiaz Castle, again amazing......and what a view across the countryside of the local area. 3rd visit was to Complex Osowka and definitely a must, but do be warned not suitable for young children or anyone with any mobility issues. All round excellent day out

    Myself and my wife were in Wroclaw for 4 days and we choose to take the private tour of Lower Selisia, where we took in Church of the Peace, Ksiaz Castle and Complex Osokwa (Project Reise). We had Jacob as our driver/guide and he went above and beyond to ensure we had the best possible tour experience. Jacob is very professional and courteous and is a credit to this company. I would definitely recommend.

    We couldn't ask for a nicer tour! The driver Jacob was amazing, kind and very responsive to our needs and questions. We've seen so much in one day... Surely a day to remember.

    Driver/guide was very pleasant and trip was good for the most part. However time was wasted as tickets were not purchased ahead of time and driver had to stand in line to purchase tickets for the castle tour while we waited. We toured the castle on our own but there were not enough audio guides therefore we had to share. Castle was confusing and we got lost a number of times. We arrived late for the underground tour and had to wait for next one. Not a big deal but it seemed like it could have been timed better. We enjoyed the day but would have appreciated more organization as well as more commentary as we drove through the different villages and past notable sites.

    We can customize a departure time to individual needs of our Guests. This was not possible, since other participants determined the time of departure.
    Entry/Admission - Gross-Rosen Museum in Rogoznica This did not happen.
    Also, there was no contact from the provider in Poland, until we made a call on one say before the day of departure.

    This tour was a great addition to our stay in Wroclaw. The surrounding area has some interesting sights that are worth seeing for a few hours and this tour makes them accessible without a car of your own. We were picked up at our apartment in the city on time and driven to each of three stops and given a time range for staying. Tickets were included and we were back on schedule. Highly recommended.
