The Palace in Iłowa

Momentum and imagination

To enter the park complex, you need to pass through a beautiful half-timbered gate. In the park, where the Czerna Mała River flows, your attention is immediately drawn to a two-winged palace built in the Renaissance and Baroque periods. At the turn of the 19th and 20th centuries, a tower and terraces were added to the building.

Palace in Iłowa – jewel of oriental art

These changes were initiated by the then owner of the palace, Count Friedrich von Hochberg zu Fürstenstein. Inspired by Japanese art, he introduced elements of Oriental art into the palace architecture and decor. Similarly to Friedrich  von Promnitz, Count von Hochberg zu Fürstenstein was also a great enthusiast of dogs – he even built a racetrack for them, and a cemetery with epitaphs. Despite the partial devastation and plunder of the palace during World War II, some elements, such as the beautiful stucco work and wooden stairs with a balustrade, have survived till the present day. It is a real feast not only for enthusiasts of architecture. Today, the building houses the Post-Junior High School Complex.
