4 New Underground Route runs along the terraces, in the direction of the main Castle building. The first half of the route ends where the construction works caved in, at the entrance to the elevator shaft which is now filled in. This shaft was to lead out to the Honorary Courtyard. The ticket is valid for a 45-minute guided visit to the Książ Castle underground area. Admission is valid only on the specific date, and at the specific time, shown on the ticket.  A supplementary ticket is required to visit the Underground Route (a ticket for admission to the festival grounds, where the Undergound's entrance is located, is also required). More information about Underground tunnels find here 
PLEASE NOTE: During the Festival of Flowers and Art, one should allow 90 to 120 minutes to tour the Castle, depending on traffic (whether it is a peak time or a holiday). Please plan your visit to the Castle in such a way that you will be at the entrance to the underground at least five minutes before the tour starts (the starting time is on your ticket). The map of route leading to the underground is here 

5 The tunnel was dug, during World War II, 15 metres under the castle. Visitors have access to a 96-metre length of the tunnel, 1.5 metres wide and 2.5 metres in height, ending at an unfinished staircase.  The ticket is valid for a 15-minute guided visit to the tunnel. A supplementary ticket is required to visit the tunnel (a ticket for admission to the festival grounds, where the tunnel’s entrance is located, is also required).

A burial chapel for the Hochberg family features stucco wall decorations and vault paintings depicting Książ Castle from four sides of the world. Visitors will discover there a capacious crypt, which was was dug out in rock.
