The castle was the seat of the Kórnik family of Gorka - one of the most powerful aristocratic families of the Renaissance era. At first it was more defensive than representational, and only in later years, after passing into the hands of the Czarnkowski, Grudzinski and Działyński families, the daughter of the owner of the castle, Teofilia Działyńska transformed it into a palatial mansion in the French style.

Today, in the interiors of the castle there is a museum, where there are many unique exhibits, including: military equipment, arts and crafts, silver and porcelain, furniture and paintings from different eras. There is also the seat of Kórnik Library of the Polish Academy of Sciences (PAN).

The castle was famous, above all, from the legend of the "White Lady", which says that at midnight Teofilia Działyńska, whose picture hangs in the dining room of the castle, is stepping out of the picture and walks in the chambers and in the park.
