Just north of the district town of Wałbrzych, you will come across a small protected area of preserved nature Księżski Park Krajobrazowy in the center of which is a beautiful castle Księż. The castle is said to have over 400 rooms. The castle is interesting both from the outside and from the inside. There are several hiking trails in the area

Hochberg Mausoleum

The starting point for a trip to Ksiaz Castle is a large parking lot southeast of the castle (signs will take you there, you pay 15 zlotys). From the car park, take the local beech forest. You will be the first to encounter the mausoleum of the aristocratic Hochberg family
