A place with history
When the knight Adam Podewils defended prince Bogusław X from the blow in the battle of Sianów in 1475, he gave him a castle in gratitude, in which, "... the number of windows corresponds to the number of days in a year, the number of rooms - the number of weeks, the number of entrances - the number of months, and the four towers are equivalent to the four seasons… ”.
The facility was beautifully situated among forests, by a lake, almost perfectly round. Over the years and the change of owners, the fortress has changed, gaining more and more intimate character. The last owner was Karl Alexander von Riepenhausen, who bought the castle from Hugo von Loen for 188,000 thalers. According to the legend, the sale was caused by card debts ... In 1945 there was a fire in the castle, but until 1956. a forest inspectorate and a school operated here. Later, the building was secured and only in the 90s was it put up for sale. Private owners, strictly adhering to the remaining pre-war plans, renovated both the mansion and the park.
