Osówka underground complex is one of the most interesting in the Owl Mountains.

Underground tunnels with an extensive network of corridors, created in mid-1943 were used for the construction workers and prisoners of the concentration camp Gross-Rosen. Construction was covered in mystery and was probably used as a secret hideout of Adolf Hitler. It is said that this was the last, largest and most extensive Hitler's fortress in Lower Silesia.

The most interesting objects in the underground city are: 50-meter-long "Casino" with window openings, concrete block called "gym", the remains of the narrow gauge line, the foundations of the prison barracks, as well as a memorial plaque with the names of people who had participated in the reconstruction and to whom we owe the possibility of visiting the place.

If you plan to explore the complex should stock up on warm clothing, comfortable shoes and socks, even in the summer because there is cold here.

Walking takes place with a guide, participants receive helmets.
