It was in 1299 when Pałac Wojanów has been mentioned in the sources for the first time. In those days it belonged to von Zedlitz lineage up until 1727, with a short break between 1540 and 1548 when its proprietors were members of the aristocratic Silesian dynasty of Schaffgotsch.
The Palace was founded by Nikolaus von Zedlitz und Nimmersatt in 1603. Unfortunately it was ruined and lost its charm during the Thirty Year's War. It was then rebuilt by Christopher von Zedlitz in 1667.
XVIII and XIX Century
After 1727 Wojanów estate often changed its proprietors. It is worth mentioning one of the owners, a Secret Court Counsellor- Ike. It was him who decided to change all interior layouts of the building and rebuild it according to new arrangements. This meant adding additional floor and raising the turrets. He had the walls ornamented with an English New Gothic style fretwork.
Due to his family arrangements Ike left Wojanów and moved to the Polish Kingdom in 1839. Wojanów estate was then acquired by Frederick Wilhelm III, who remembered it from his previous frequent visits to Jelenia Góra Basin. He presented it as a wedding gift to his beloved daughter Louise and Prince Frederick of the Netherlands (Frederick van Oranje-Nassau).
Thanks to them the estate acquired a beautiful scenic park. They also changed the façade of the main building to a New Gothic style. In 1889 Wojanów was inherited by their daughter Maria zu Wied. She had the Palace refurbished and sold it to Karl Krieg in 1908.
Consul Kurt Effenberg became the next proprietor and he remained one until 1945. During the World War II the estate was inhabited by the Prisoners of War who worked in paper factory in Dąbrowica. The Palace remained intact during World War II, however, just after its end, it was robbed and all valuable things were either destroyed or stolen.
After the war it was exploited as the base of State Agricultural Farm and then as a guest house. In those days there was not much attention paid to its condition and it became neglected.
In 1995 Pałac Wojanów was bought by an Italian company who attempted to renovate it. Unfortunately the company did not succeed in its efforts as the Palace was burnt in 2002.
Since 2005 Pałac Wojanów belongs to Pałac Wojanów Sp. z o.o.. The entire estate: the main Palace building, the side buildings as well as its park, has now been thoroughly refurbished and renovated. Finally in 2007 it became a conference and training centre with sporting and recreation facilities, as well as a SPA Centre.
As the property is a hotel, currently Pałac Wojanów does not offer sightseeing services.
