How to get there and enter the Chojnik castle?

The walking theme can be attacked from three corners of the world, and the knightly brotherhood of Chojnik Castle should not resent this invasion.

  • Most often, the entrance from the center of Sobieszów is chosen along the black or red trail. Both of similar length. Walk 1h, and to walk about 2km.
  • The black trail “Zachełmie” is also a 1h walk but already to walk 2.5km one way.
  • The green tourist trail “Jagniątków” is the long-distance one in the area of 1:15 minutes and 3.4 km to walk.

Each of the trails to the castle is unique in its own kind and I have no favorite, Each of them can be done partially in a loop, but the descent itself is without alternatives. They are even great if you want to get to know the area, but remember that in places they can be quite steep.


Chojnik Castle – parking

If you plan to visit Chojnik Castle, remember that there is no parking lot at the castle itself [referring to the reader’s comment :D). However, there are several paid parking lots in the area. The nearest of them is located right at the beginning of the trail, in Sobieszów. From there it is only a short walk to the Chojnik gate.

Several trails from Podgórzyn, Przesieka and Zachełme also lead to the Chojnik Castle. These towns are also equipped with parking lots for cars, buses or motorhomes. Most importantly, at night, they are all partially illuminated.

Once you are at the castle, take the time to explore the area and see the amazing views. If you’re lucky, you might even find some of the castle treasures that have been lost over the years – It’s also a great form of fun!


The most beautiful route to the Chojnik castle

The most beautiful route to the Chojnik castle according to Internet users and opinions from Google is the black trail that runs from Sobieszów to the viewpoint of the castle. This rocky trail leads through the Krkonoše National Park, and on the way you can enjoy wonderful views of the castle. For a small fee, you can also visit the main attraction: the castle or the green trail go around the Kunegunda stronghold.


Visiting Chojnik Castle

Chojnik is a rock castle located in the Kłodzko Valley, in south-western Poland. It was built in the thirteenth century as a stronghold of the Polish Piast dynasty. In the fourteenth century, the castle was expanded and became the seat of castellans. In 1489, the castle was inherited by Kunegunda, wife of Władysław II Jagiełło, king of Polish. A tour of the Chojnik Castle itself includes a visit to the castle fortifications, a hellish bypass and a green trail for daredevils. The tour also offers a panorama from the viewpoint of the castle and a stop at the hostel on the Chojnik mountain.


Legends about Chojnik Castle

Chojnik Castle, also known as Kunegunda Castle, is a picturesque ruin located in the Giant Mountains. Legend has it that the castle burned down from a meteorite impact and today only ruins remain of it. According to the story, the castle was once inhabited by a castellan named Kunegunda. Kunegunda was a beautiful woman who was loved by everyone who knew her. One day she disappeared without a trace. Some say that she was kidnapped by a dragon, others that she simply left the castle. No one knows for sure what happened to her, but her legend lives on in the form of Chojnik Castle, the signs and symbols she left in this place.


Are you planning a trip to the Giant Mountains?

The Giant Mountains are one of the most popular Polish tourist resorts. It is a place where you can relax and take a break from everyday problems. It is also an ideal place for mountain hikes and hiking even when your fitness is not at the best level. There are many tourist attractions in the Giant Mountains that are worth seeing. A few suggestions below.


Hell’s Valley – the pearl of the Giant Mountains

Hell’s Valley is one of the most popular tourist destinations in the Giant Mountains. The name of the valley comes from the ruins of the hellish castle located there. In the area there are the aforementioned ruins of the Chojnik castle. The valley is a popular excursion destination for hikers and tourists alike. Several green trails and a yellow trail lead through the valley, which leads to the viewpoint.


Black Jagniątkowski Cauldron

The Black Lamb’s Cauldron, also known as Black Yaga, is a large, black cauldron used in Polish folk magic. It is believed to have power over life and death, and is often used in spells and rituals related to these themes. The cauldron is also associated with the dark goddess Hecate. The Black Jagniątkowski Cauldron is also a picturesque trail that I have not visited, hence I will not share photos. I recommend the place because I looked at a few photos of blogger companions and a tear in my eye spins that I forgot about such a wonderful place.


Silesian Stones (Divci Kameny)

Silesian Stones is the name of a place on the border with the Czech Republic. It is located in the Landscape Park, which is part of the Sudetenland. It is a popular place among tourists, due to its beauty and uniqueness.
