  • We were there for short trip in October. I know the place is not huge, maybe not well popular and a bit of main road but is well worth of visiting. Is a part of Hitlers huge project called Riese.Place...  more »

  • I haven't been there because of not actual information on the official website and the Google page. It works now till 6 pm on weekend, but you need to get there till 5 pm, for weekdays you need to get there before 4 pm as they work till 5 pm.
  • A place that reminds you how bestial a man can be. An uncompromising lesson of history.
  • I think Osowka is better.. or Wlodarz. Guide was speaking polish, so tourist from abroad will miss a lot. There are some nice sound effects, like live scenes
  • WWII tunnel experience was pretty interesting. There is a large network of these tunnels around this area. The guide only spoke Polish. It can get very cold and wet underground in these tunnels (even in the summer) so, remember to wrap up and wear waterproofs.
  • Great place to visit with tons of historical significance. I do wish there was an option to look around without a tour guide though...
