Trip Planner: Europe / Poland / Southern Poland / Lower Silesia Province / Klodzko / Fortress Klodzko (Twierdza Klodzko)
Kłodzko Fortress is a unique fortification complex of the Lower Silesian Voivodeship in southwestern Poland. The fortress once was one of the biggest strongholds in Prussian Silesia, however, in the whole German Empire, it was regarded as a minor one. Now, together with an extensive network of tunnels, it is one of the biggest attractions of the town of Kłodzko, with its underground labyrinth and a repository of for different objects, from old fire engines to local glassware.HistoryFirst mentions of existence of a stronghold placed on Kłodzko's Castle Hill come from the Chronicle of Bohemians, written by Cosmas of Prague. Most probably, it was a complex of wooden buildings, protected with a palisade. Kłodzko itself is located along the strategic route between Wrocław and Prague, and its role as a trading point must have been significant since the early Middle Ages. In 1114, the stronghold was captured and destroyed by Czech troops under prince Soběslav, who at the same time reconquered the whole area.In 1129, Soběslav rebuilt the town and placed a castellan there. Some time around 1300, a spacious castle was built on the hill, which became seat of the Kłodzko County. Gradually, the castle grew, a church and a chapel were added and in 1557, Lorenz Krischke, architect at the court of Prince Ernest of Bavaria, built the Lower Castle. In the 16th century, there were five wells in the castle with the oldest one from 1393.To visit Fortress Klodzko (Twierdza Klodzko) on your holiday in Klodzko, and find out what else Klodzko has to offer, use our Klodzko trip builder website .

Robi wrażenie pomimo że jest jeszcze bardzo dużo do odestaurowania. Widać, że długo była totalnie zaniedbana. Fajny przewodnik. Warto zobaczyć. more »Impressive although it is still very much to odestaurowania. You can see that long was totally neglected. Cool Guide. Worth to see.
Spory obiekt, ale raczej słabo zagospodarowany. Brakuje przewodnika, ale dobrze ze są chociaż tablice informacyjne. Sporo chodzenia, tylko niektóre pomieszczenia są otwarte, większość z nich jest pust... more »Disputes over property, but rather poorly landscaped. The guide is missing, but it's good they are while information boards. A lot of walking, only some of the rooms are open, most of them are empty, even without any description relating to their destination.
Insbesondere die Tunneltour ist zu empfehlen. Kinder unter 6 Jahren dürfen nicht mitkommen. Man sollte keine Angst im Dunkeln haben. more »In particular the tunnel tour is recommended. Children may not come under 6 years of age. You should have no fear in the dark.
An interesting place. A good place to explore
It's OK but I expected something more. Impressive from outside but inside there is nothing interesting.
A great place to visit! Must see if you are interested in military or history.
Little long at the end, but interesting
