EDUCATION AT KSIĄŻ CASTLE:
(visiting may take place up to one hour after the closing of the ticket office)
We warmly invite pupils and their teachers to enjoy the special atmosphere of classes in the castle chambers.
Each class consists of two modules:
I. A talk and presentation
II. Castle visit
This class takes young visitors to the times when powerful dynasties ruled Silesia and their trusted knights were in charge of the castle. The story of Książ is presented in an unusually interesting way, drawing young learners closer to the tales of the castle’s remarkable history: from its beginnings, to the rule of its final owners, before the war – the defiant Princess Daisy and her husband, Hans Heinrich XV. During the first part of the class, children will be acquainted with the legend of how Książ first arose, and learn of the principles of the code of knightly conduct. They will also be informed of the daily life of the castle’s residents. To awaken the active interest of young learners, the history of Książ is illustrated by a display of archival photographs.
After the presentation has finished, pupils go on to tour the building, and so the castle class involves more than listening to stories about history: they also truly experience it, living on in today’s world. During the tour, the children may actively explore places associated with the castle’s everyday life in former times.
