STAY AT PAŁAC PISZKOWICE
Soak in the History
The history of Pałac Piszkowice dates back to the 14th century when the lands surrounding the small defensive fort belonged to the von Haugwitz family. The surviving baroque structure was built at the beginning of the 18th century atop the medieval foundations.
Following 1945 the decline of the Pałac progressed with an ever increasing speed. Initially the building housed an elementary school, kindergarten, and a teacher’s flat. After the school was closed, the building was sold to a string of private investors who abandoned the home. Finally in 2015, new owners undertook the massive project of restoring the building and the surrounding gardens to their former glory.
Today you can enjoy a relaxing stay in the Pałac. You will enjoy comfortable, classically designed apartments and rooms, each with ensuite. The garden terraces provide a private, hidden oasis for relaxing. The surrounding area provides an abundance of beauty and a wide array of activities including walking, cycling, mountain hiking, swimming and more.
Lower Silesia, Poland
Pałac Piszkowice is located in Poland’s South West corner in the beautiful Lower Silesia region. We are located 80 kilometres from Wroclaw to the North and 193 kilometres from Prague in the Czechia. Krakow and Warsaw are also just a few hours drive from the Pałac.
The region has a very rich history in book printing – from the University of Wrocław/Breslau Press to centuries-old paper factories. One such factory still operates about 12 kilometers from the Pałac in nearby Duszniki-Zdrój . It is housed in the original 1600’s building
.Old prints are our passion and we want to share that passion with visitors from all walks of life. Paper books are slowly becoming historical artefacts and we want to preserve the appreciation to this cornerstone of progress from the past 5 centuries.
We hope in the future the Pałac will offer an old-print workshop to local schools where students will be able to compose, design and print a page using 1500’s techniques and presses.

ABOUT THE PAŁAC
Pałac (pronounced “palace”) Piszkowice was close to ruin when we discovered it in mid-2015. Since purchasing the property we have worked lovingly to restore the Pałac close to its original structure as a grand home.
