Wolf's Lair is Adolf Hitler’s war headquarters where he lived between June 1940 until November 1944. It is a huge complex of 250 ha which consists of barracks, shelters and bunkers equipped in its own power and water supplies. Our guide will tell you about everyday life in the Lair and about many crucial decisions which were made here e.g. about creation of concentration camps. Although the retreating German troops blew up the whole complex, it is now preserved in a good condition, especially some of the bunkers inhabited by German dignitaries, for example the Goering bunker. On July 20th 1944 a famous assassination attempt took place in Wolf's Lair. You will visit the exact place where a German officer (Claus Von Stauffenberg) tried to kill Adolf Hitler by letting a bomb burst. The explosion killed four people. Hitler survived with his clothes singed, a cut to his hand and damaged ear drums. The assassination plot was depicted in the movie "Valkyrie" with Tom Cruise.

Swieta Lipka Sanctuary
The famous Polish pilgrimage destination, located at the bottom of a picturesque valley surrounded by forests. You will see one of the most outstanding baroque sanctuaries in Poland, which consists of church, cloisters and the monastery. Inside you will see almost entirely original baroque sculpture ornamentation and wall paintings. Swieta Lipka is famous for its daily organ concerts.
The legend says in 14th century Saint Mary releaved herself to a man condemned to death on the last night of his life. She told him she could save him from death on one condition – he had to make a scupture of her. She gave him a chisel and a piece of wood. The man sculpted all night. The next morning, a judge noticed the scupture held by the prisoner. He thought the scultpure was so beautiful it must have been made by God. He set the prisoner free. The salvaged man remembered he had promised Mother Mary to place the figure at the first lime tree he would encounter. He did as promised and built a house nearby. Ever since then miracles and cures are claimed to have happend in the towns nearby, which drew pilgrimages from all over the country. Soon a chapel was built next to the lime tree. Even Albrecht Hohenzollern – the Grad Master of the Teutonic Knights visited it once. In 18th century, the baroque sanctuary was built.

The Nazi shelters located in Mamerki are one of the best-preserved in Poland. The most important decisions for the Wehrmacht army during the World War II were made here. Also here the order to put down the Warsaw Uprising was given. Buldings and concrete shelters were constructed between 1940 and 1944. As Nazis had no time to blow them up, they remained untouched. You will see 250 buildings, including 30 shelters that were built for forty of the highest generals and field marshals, 1500 officers and Wehrmacht soldiers. Also, you will take a look at a 30-metres long tunnel connecting two shelters. After the war, near the shelter there was a search for the Amber Room. Polish sappers blew up the bunker no. 31 many times to find the treasure to no avail – it was never found. In the Museum you will see a replic of the Amber Room.
