During the Festival, police and public safety officers will control the roads leading to the Castle. You are asked to pay close attention to road signs and to comply with the instructions of security staff.
All information about parking and bus schedules is available [here]. We also inform you that parking is available during the upcoming festival at the Książ Stallion Stud Farm (passenger cars only) and at the Coach Parking Lot (buses and coaches only). In view of the considerable interest in the Flower and Art Festival, we recommend that all visitors arriving by car use the parking lots by the following supermarkets: Auchan in Wałbrzych and Tesco in Świebodzice, where they can then board special buses to the nearby Festival grounds, leaving every 15 to 30 minutes. These parking lots, especially prepared with our visitors in mind, are free of charge from April 30 to May 3, 2018. This arrangement will allow you to avoid any traffic jams that may arise if the Stallion Stud Farm Car Park is full, and save you valuable time. Further, the Stallion Stud Farm Car Park may be closed in the event of extensive rain.
Visitors arriving on the main road from either Wrocław or Wałbrzych may use turning lanes to reach the Stallion Stud Farm Car Park (exclusively for passenger cars) and the Coach Car Park (exclusively for buses and coaches). Please note that the charge for parking a passenger car is 10 zł. per day, and a coach, 40 zł. On the main highway (National Road 35) leading to Książ, the speed limit is 40 km/h, and it is not allowed to stop or park a car outside of the car parks. Vehicles so parked will be towed! The journey from the car parks to the Castle takes 10 to 15 minutes. Handicapped visitors: see “As a handicapped visitor, how do I get to the Castle?”
In the case of inclement weather, we recommend using the specially designated car parks near the Auchan Shopping Centre, off ul. Wieniawski in Wałbrzych, and at the Tesco Market in Świebodzice. Special Festival buses, operated by the firm Maxpol, leave regularly from Auchan every 15 to 30 minutes, and from Tesco every 30 to 60 minutes. The ticket price is 2.50 zł, and the journey takes 15 minutes.
