Constructed by Franz Schewechten in 1910 and under the German rule, the Imperial Castle was built for the German Emperor under the guidance of Kaiser Wilhem II.
It remains a pivotal feature of what was once known as "The Castle District". Today, it is run by a Polish cultural entity and houses a variety of other institutions. These include a cinema and an animation theater. Visitors can walk through the courtyard and see an ornate lion fountain that was carefully modeled after the 13th century water feature still visible at Grenada's Alhambra Palace today.
In the small park that abuts this castle there is also tribute honoring the victims of Katyn that was placed in 1990.Places nearby:
