Welcome to Kórnik
The town of Kórnik, 20km southeast of Poznań, is proof that mad German kings didn’t have a monopoly on eccentric castle design. The highlight of the town is its unconventional castle, originally built by the powerful Górka family in the 15th century. Odd castles aside, the town is a pleasant place to visit, not least because it backs onto a chain of small lakes with promenades and trails, lending a spacious and breezy feel. The provincial atmosphere combined with the lakes and frequent transport connections with Poznań makes it a popular day trip from Wielkopolska's capital.
