On top of
the Raven Rock


In the second half of the 13th century, a castle was built on top of the rock. Time passed, and a fortified stone tower was erected. It is unknown who built the oldest part of the castle – legends say that it was the knightly family of Lesser Poland of Toporczyk from Morawica.

Beautiful, reconstructed Castle ruins rise near Olkusz. Here you will meet Knights fighting in numerous tournaments. From the top of the lookout tower, you can admire the magnificent panorama of the surroundings of Olkusz and, after the staging of knightly skirmishes, you can relax with a delicious coffee.

Kocjan's Cottage

In Rabsztyn, in the immediate vicinity of the Castle, you can visit the family home of Antoni Kocjan – an outstanding glider constructor and head of the Home Army (AK) air intelligence, who discovered the secrets of German V1 and V2 weapons.

The wooden house, where Antoni Kocjan was born, has been built in 1862. By order of the Olkusz authorities, the house was dismantled and transported to Rabsztyn, where it was reconstructed. Antoni Kocjan was born in 1902 in the village of Skalskie.

After graduating from Secondary School in Olkusz, he became a student at the Warsaw University of Technology in 1923 and became active in the Aviation Section of the University. Since 1931 he ran his Glider Workshop.

He designed gliders such as Czajka, Sroka, Sokół, Mewa and Orlik. Of the 1400 gliders built in Poland in the 1930s, half were his designs.

The gliders of Kocjan’s design set 40 national gliding records and one international record – and the motor glider Bąk set two international records.

Can I pay by card at the Castle?

Yes. You can pay contactless for entrance tickets, souvenirs, at the café and for the car park.

Is it possible to visit the Castle on Sunday without a guide?

At the weekends we offer guided tours included in the ticket price. Guides will be waiting for you at 11:00 am, 1:00 pm, and in high season at 3:00 pm and 5:00 pm. You can also take a guided tour for PLN 60 per group on the workdays.

Where can I leave my car?

The best place to leave your car is the car park near Kocjan’s Cottage. The car park is open during the opening hours of the Castle and is under video surveillance. We do not recommend leaving your car directly under the Castle walls from the south side: drivers are exposed to rock fragments falling from the scarp there, and fines connected with the enforcement of the parking ban in that spot.

Is it possible to visit the Castle with my dog?

Yes, it is possible under certain conditions. Dogs are not allowed in the ticket office/café area, except for a guide or assistance dog in a harness. On the rest of the Castle grounds, dogs may only be brought in on a leash – regardless of the dog’s size. We do not recommend taking the dog up to the Upper Castle – there are steep stairs on the way, the surface of which may injure your pet’s paws. However, if you want to see the beautiful view from the tower with your pet, it must wear a muzzle.
Dogs are not allowed in Kocjan’s Cottage – except for a guide or assistance dog in a harness.

Is there a place to leave my bicycle?

Yes, there are two places where cyclists can leave their bikes:

  • at the car park near the Kocjan’s Cottage
  • and the bike repair station directly under the Castle walls (near the gate).

Is smoking allowed on the grounds?

No. Smoking and electronic cigarettes are strictly forbidden on the grounds of Rabsztyn Castle, including the terrace of the Café and the Kocjan’s Cottage.
