On the northeast corner of Kamieniec Zabkowicki, on a hill over the Nysa Klodzka, the impressive neo-Gothic castle of the Duchy of Hohenzollern, rises into view.

The lands on which the castle was built belonged to the Cistercians from the 13th century. After secularisation of church the property was purchased by Frederike Luise Wilhelmine, daughter of the Prussian king Frederich Wilhelm II then acquired by her daughter, Marianne Wilhelmina of Orange, wife of Albrecht IV Hohenzollern. A residence was rebuilt by Karl Frederich Schinkle. The Castle in Kamieniec with its park, front garden, terraces and fountains became one of the most wonderful residences in this part of Europe. The Castle was not destroyed during the Second World War. Rather it was abandoned by its former owners and then stripped bare. It gradually fell into ruin. In an interesting fact, the marble flooring of the castle was removed to Warsaw, where it was used in outfitting the Congress Hall of The Palace of Science and Culture, then under construction.

The Palace is currently under reconstruction by private owners. A hotel and café are located in the castle. The crooked Tower is one of the attraction of Lower Silesia. Created in XV century with high of 34 m. It is diverted about 2m of initial plumb line.

Fortress in Silver Mountain - is the highest mountain structure of its kind in Europe. In the second half of the 18th century, fortresses were erected by order of the Prussian king, Frederick II. A central point in these defences is the Donzon (Bastion) fortress whose battlements and batteries were erected along the ridge of the Sowie Mountains. In their entirety they form a powerful stronghold which even Napoleon himself could not take. This fortification is fully self-sufficient and can withstand a siege for around 9 – 12 months, without external re-supply.

The majestic tower still overlooks the encircling mountains. A decision by the President of Poland had the facility included on a list of historical monuments. The Fortress Cultural Park is located on the premises of the tower. Srebrna Gora is not without its curiosities either. There is a narrow-gauge railway from the early 20th century, with an interesting portion that passes between two huge viaducts.
