Tenczyn Castle, also known as Tęczyn Castle, is a medieval castle in the village of Rudno in the Polish Jura, Poland. It was built as a seat of the powerful Tęczyński family. The castle fell into disrepair during the Deluge in mid-17th century, after being pillaged and burned by Swedish-Brandenburgian forces looking for the Polish Crown Jewels and rumored treasures of the Tęczyński family. Subsequently rebuilt, it again fell into disrepair after a major fire in the mid-18th century and remains in that state to this day.Put Zamek Tenczyn into our Rudno trip planning website to see other points of interest to visit during your vacation in Rudno.
The castle stands on the remnants of a Permian-era lava stream, the highest hill of Garb Tenczyński (Castle Hill), which is 411 m above the sea level.
Zamek Tenczyn reviews
Currently under restoration, this castle had aspirations to be a second Wavel and with its size and position you can see why. Terrific views, but limited facilities. more »
Great location, view and dedicated guide made the trip to this place very interesting. The castle is under reconstruction but one can get into the tower and walk around. more »
Beautiful place. Great to go with kids, lots of fun for everyone.
Beautiful castle. Nice short hike around it and great grass lands overlooking the castle which are fun to sit in a nice weather.
