Pałac Gorzanów

Add the name of your place

Location Poland, Lower Silesia Province, Sudetes Mountains, Kłodzko Valley, Gorzanów
The history of this place is a gold mine of ideas for books and film scripts. Sit back, we will tell you a bit, but be warned - for more, you need to get out of your armchair, pack your bags and go to the very centre of Kłodzko Valley, where for 450 years a story about a certain palace has been told. But first a word of caution. The Gorzanów Palace is still under renovation, and we as a foundation are still learning how to welcome guests. Many things don't work yet, and despite our being fired up with the project - we haven't managed to get it to earn only good reviews. We didn't tackle the kitchen, we're still working on that. There really were a lot of things that went wrong last year and any poor feedback (apart from one we didn't deserve) is well deserved. We promise to do better this year. Give us a chance. But remember, this is not a hotel and spa, it's more of a hostel, but in a really cool place. If you want to know its history, see below... Our favourite part is the one about an eccentric who was lucky enough to inherit this magnificent palace at the turn of the 18th and 19th centuries. Why do we call him an eccentric? He had a completely different vision of life than most of his predecessors. His name was Johann Hieronymus von Herberstein. He expressed no particular interest in the property but was passionate about plants. What he enjoyed most about his impressive inheritance was the opportunity to tend his large garden. However, when you have a palace and not much money, you have a lot of problems to solve (which Johann did not want to deal with). However, he was born under a lucky star, which crossed his path with an actress from Berlin - Eleonora Petrelli. Like Johann, Mrs Petrelli was an interesting personality and had her own big dream: her own theatre. Suffice it to say that their very relationship broke the stereotypes of the time: Eleonora, when she moved into the Gorzanów Palace, was in her thirties and already had 4 children from her first marriage to a rich Italian merchant. Johann apparently did not care about the opinions of outsiders, who shook their heads at this bizarre choice of life partner. Only good things came out of this relationship: thanks to Mrs Petrelli there was a theatre in the palace, which staged performances 3 times a week, 8 months a year for the next 28 years, and Johann renovated the Orangery and could endlessly dig in the flower beds. Many years after Johann's death, the Herbenstein family went bankrupt (investing in gold turned out to be a very bad idea at the time) and the palace was taken over by the municipality of Bystrica, but the legacy of their joint efforts has survived the centuries and today inspires us to make further bold plans for this place. Since the 1960s, the castle had been falling into ruin. In 2012, Marek Haisig bought the palace and set up the Gorzanów Palace Foundation, which has since been fighting tirelessly to save this pearl of Renaissance architecture from destruction. He could repeat the words of Karl von Holtei, a poet and actor who made his debut on the stage of the Petrelli Theatre: "Like a fairy castle, a strange building stood before me, as if it had been specially conjured into this valley so that I could begin my adventure in the same place". This adventure is still ongoing, and today, proud and happy, we can finally open the doors and invite you to the Palace.

The light Lord will sleep in the chamber of a four-century palace. Seriously, we do not promise that you will feel royal (because you cannot promise something like that), but it is certainly an unusual overnight stay, for people who are sensitive and imaginative, it causes a number of unique aesthetic impressions. The Gorzanów Palace is unique: you will not see such an amount (miraculously!) Of original Renaissance decorations, paintings and (sic!) 17th-century signatures on the walls anywhere else, at least in our country. We will give you the following numbers: over 10,000 square meters of preserved wall decorations, also from the 17th century. We save the charm of the palace by still carrying out renovation and renovation works, but we will not make this place a five-star spa resort. This is a historical place and we want you to feel it clearly while there. So be warned: do not expect fancy hotel rooms with smooth and cleanly painted walls. You will see rather rough walls, with bare wood on the ceilings remembering the old times. Furniture that does not kill the charm, colorful carpets thrown on the floor. Wooden boxes and heavy wardrobes from a different era. We have a total of 6 guest rooms, 2 of which are located in the main part of the palace and 4 in the Gate wing. Most are double rooms and two apartments for five or six people each. Most of them have their own bathroom. The building houses a common dining room with a fireplace, a theater hall, the historic Nymphaeum and 187 other rooms, available for visiting at the Gorzanów Palace.

What will I eat?

There are three communal kitchens at guests' disposal. You can prepare meals in them, you can leave food in the refrigerator. There is also an option of food in the form that will be most convenient for you. Full? Only breakfasts? No problem, everything is negotiable. If you are veg or have any allergies, you don't have to worry - we'll take that into account. We will talk and agree what and how together. Our flexibility in terms of food can be a great advantage, because it is difficult to find a good restaurant in the area, which we could recommend you with a clear conscience (there is only one exception - you will definitely eat well in the PTTK "Jagodna" shelter). We advise you to cook yourself or use our culinary talents. UNLESSLY WE DO NOT SERVE MEALS CURRENTLY, YOU CAN STILL USE THE AVAILABLE KITCHENS

Let's start with the Palace, because it is the apple of our eye and a generator of all kinds of entertainment. First of all, the palace can be visited, of course. 187 chambers and 4 courtyards are a lot of mysterious space to discover, and we are happy to reveal it to you with passion and commitment that Indiana Jones would not be ashamed of. We often find ourselves unable to tell all the great palace stories in one sightseeing, but maybe that's a good thing - you can come back and surprise yourself again. Secondly, in the past, the Palace was a kind of cultural center at that time and we wanted to restore this role to it. Most of it happens in summer. We organize festivals, theater performances (in 2018, after a 90-year break, the palace theater started), individual concerts, sometimes vernissages. We also organize various art workshops - the palace space has been inspiring artists and fostering creative thinking for years. For now, we do not have a rigid schedule and cyclicality - our events are often the result of spontaneous relationships with artists from various fields. And as the fame of the restored Gorzanów Palace is increasing, the calendar of events is filling up faster and faster every year. There is a good chance that you will find something interesting during your stay. Thirdly, the Palace is surrounded by 6 hectares of parkland inhabited by our friends: mare and foal, goats, puppies, dog, small and large cats. You can lie down on the green grass, watch the jumping goats and just relax. Gorzanów is located in the middle of the Kłodzko Valley. We are surrounded by mountains on each side, and in the vicinity there are several beautifully situated towns such as Międzygórze and Srebrna Góra. A green tourist trail leads through the village, which takes you to the charming old PTTK hostel "Jagodna", located on the Spalona Pass (about 6 hours of walking). You can also take a car to Bystrzyca Kłodzka and set off from there (then you have a 3.5 hour walk to the shelter). Several hiking trails cross the Przełęcz, which makes it possible to tailor trips of various lengths according to your preferences and possibilities. There are several spa towns in the vicinity, where you can jump into the swimming pool and drink water rich in valuable ingredients (including Polanica Zdrój, Lądek Zdrój). From Gorzanów it is also a stone's throw to the Czech Republic (there is a direct railway connection), which makes our Palace an excellent starting point for trips to our southern neighbors.

We invite children for whom sleeping in the palace is a fairy-tale adventure. We do not have a thousand additional attractions here, but the little ones appreciate the unique atmosphere of the place, conducive to creative play. All princesses and princes have a soft spot at the sight of our pets - horses and goats, and in the large park you can romp until they drop.

Słabe value for money. Warto wpaść na wizytę, nocleg odradzam. Warunki hostelowe i nie jest to problem. Problemem jest wszechobecny syf. Kuchnia brudna. Po terenie pałacu turlają się śmieci - puszki, butelki, pety, reklamówki, resztki jedzenia. Mili ludzie, widać, że wkładają sporo wysiłku w odnowienie pałacu.


Pobyt w Pałacu to naprawdę niesamowite doświadczenie. Jest się dosłownie otoczonym warstwami historii, która przycupnęła w pięknej dolinie w otoczeniu cichej, sennej miejscowości. To miejsce dla podróżników i osób kolekcjonujących przygody, nie należy się spodziewać doświadczenia jak z 5 gwiazdkowego hotelu, w którym wszystko jest sterylne i bezosobowe. Tutaj każdy pokój, a wręcz każda cegła ma swój niepowtarzalny charakter. Serdecznie polecam, pojechaliśmy z chłopakiem na romantyczną majówkę i w tej roli pałac naprawdę się sprawdził! Dodatkowym plusem jest pociąg, który dość często kursuje przez miejscowość. Można wygodnie dojechać do Kłodzka czy Bystrzycy Kłodzkiej w 10 minut.


Wbrew naszym obawom w pokoju było ciepło, duży plus. Minusem była akustyka, słychać o czym rozmawiają goście obok, albo to jak ktoś chodzi wyżej. To może być uciążliwe. Jednak podsumowując jest to ciekawe doświadczenie, nocowanie w prawdziwym pałacu.
