The palace in Bukowiec is located in the central part of the impressive palace and park complex, which can be found in the lower part of Bukowiec, by the road to Karpniki.
A significant date in the history of the estate was in 1785, when Frederick Wilhelm von Reden bought the property in Bukowiec. This dynamic, thoroughly educated man with broad interests and artistic aspirations, made major changes at the estate, modifying the neglected property into a flourishing and profitable farm. Between 1790-1880 he modernized the manor house. Since then the palace has been characterized by neoclassical style, gaining importance and size. In addition, he erected a number of farm buildings and founded a park, fame of which went beyond the borders of Silesia. Thanks to various owners’ acquaintances, Bukowiec became a centre of cultural and social life. During this period, guests from all over Europe came to Bukowiec. They were, among others, the poet Johann Wolfgang Goethe, and the German painter Caspar David Friedrich.
After the death of the count’s wife in 1854, the estate was inherited by Maria von Riedesel and belonged to her heirs until the end of World War II.
