In the castle is located one of the most famous Polish libraries, Kórnik Library (link), which currently contains roughly 400,000 volumes (including 30,000 books older than 150 years, and 14,000 manuscripts), despite being robbed by the Germans during WW2.

Also, on the site around castle there is the largest (40 ha) and oldest Polish arboretum (link).

View of the castle on a XIX-century litography:




Current appearance of the castle dates back to the period of 1843-61, when it was rebuilt in neogothic style on instruction of the then landlord, Count Tytus Działyński.

Before its reconstruction the castle had looked as follows:

At least the architect was German (Karl Friedrich Schinkel)

Another work from him: Ehrenburg Castle

Who cares?

Besides, the robbers of precious volumes at Kórnik Library during WW2 were also German.

PS. That comment was deleted by a mod (was that you, erbse?) for unknown reason. If that happens again, I'll submit a report to the forum admin.

So you've been waiting for the provision of sources ever since? Patient boy/girl, but you could've asked earlier...

There you go:
- http://pl.wikipedia.org/wiki/Zamek_w_K%C3%B3rniku
- http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/K%C3%B3rnik_Library
- http://www.zamkipolskie.com/korni/korni.html
- http://zamki.res.pl/kornik.htm
- http://eksploratorzy.com.pl/viewtopic.php?f=2&t=1252

Update: I need to correct myself, as it wasn't only the library, the entire castle was robbed.

Quote from one of the above sources (Google-translated):

"At the end of the war the Nazis fleeing in panic, some exhibits from Kórnik deported to the Reich, some of them destroyed, and the rest left in the general mess: [...] The interior of the castle after fleeing the Germans represented an amazing picture of destruction. Everywhere heaps of smashed furniture and relics, the remains of the broken crates, glass and porcelain, of loose parchment documents, scattered books, coins, and all papers, overturned furniture and parts thereof, broken and damaged doors, seats [...]."

And also a more general source on the Nazi art plunder in Poland: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Nazi_plunder#Poland

Sounds more like some Russian soldiers and Polish...well ... "people" grabbing what they can and destroying by that - with their little sense for beauty and heritage - their own heritage. All that between raping and land-grabbing of Germans.

What do you mean by "tallest"? The one with the tallest tower or the one sitting at the highest elevation?
