One of the most striking buildings in Poznan and also one of the landmark structures of the city is Zamek Cultural Centre aka Imperial Castle.
Originally built between 1905-1910 as the residence for German Emperor William II from designs from architect Franz Heinrich Schwechen ,it really is an amazing building to view ,so photogenic ,it's also home to The Dubliner Irish Pub ,a great pub were my twin brother Stephen and I enjoyed some great beers ,if you're walking down Ulica Swiety Marcin it's a castle building to most definitely check out .

Cool to explore by yourself with a map for 7zł. Nicely upkept and finished rooms. Nice view from the balcony but no access to higher towers and some of the nicest rooms were closed due to the exhibitions. 1h is enough.

This was an amazing place and interesting in many ways… we opted to Not use the audio guides and that was a mistake, as we kept getting lost!! The map given to us was not too easy to understand and there were other exhibitions going on that required a separate ticket.. so we were on our own but did enjoy the movie at the beginning that explains how the castle has changed, especially when Hitler took it over!! I was
amazed at the amount of bathrooms available— and there is a lift if you need it.. I did!! A lot of road construction in front but we were walking!

The Imperial Castle was built in 1905-1910 as the residence of the German Emperor Wilhelm II. The entire area of ​​the castle is available to visitors. I recommend visiting with an audio guide. We will hear many historical facts and curiosities. There are many toilets in the castle that are open to the public. There is also a bistro where you can stop not only for coffee or tea, but also have a small meal or dessert. There is a bookstore next to the restaurant. Cool place, worth visiting.

The palace was built for the kind, which never lived in it finally. Still impressive to see the building and have a walk in the lovely gardens.

The Imperial castle is very beautifully proportioned. It is the youngest castle in Europe, completed in 1910 for the German Emperor. But it has a checkered history. In 1918, Poland won this territory back and it became the residence of Polish President. When Nazi Germany invaded Poland in 1939, this castle became residence of Adolf Hitler.

In the grounds is a monument for Katyn massacre. USSR had also invaded Poland in 1939 without declaring war. So the Polish army had not engaged it. They simply captured the officer cops of the Polish army and the intelligence here and executed them a year later, over 22,000 of them!

So the monument in the grounds of Imperial Castle is dedicated to the victims of the massacre which included Generals, many Colonels, Professors, Doctors etc.

Originally the komplex was built as a castle for Willem II, when the Germans ruled here. Today it serves as a multicultural center, with cinema, theater, exhibitions, etc.

There wasn't a lot going on when I visited, so most of the exhibitions were shut. I think there was a cinema there, and there was a very nice cafe upstairs, as well as a sort of local history exhibition in the main foyer, which was nice also.
