Instructions for visitors
When moving around inside the paper mill, kindly take care in the passages between the rooms. Please pay attention to low door frames, steep stairs and non-standard steps.
The paper mill buildings in Duszniki-Zdrój were built from the 16th to the 18th century. Consequently, many of the architectural solutions used here do not comply with current building regulations for new buildings. For this reason, there are potential dangers in some places of the routes.
