The Palace first appeared on the map already in 1902. The over 200-year old building has witnessed numerous historically significant events.
It played an important role in the period of the plebiscite campaign. In 1918-1922 the houses of Polish activists were often searched. In these situations the Palace was utilised to hide guns used by insurrectionists in sabotage activities and to hide people who were being hunted in Prussia for anti-national activity.
In Czarny Las Wojciech Korfanty, the dictator of III Silesian Uprising, decided to call on Polish-speaking population from Lower Silesia to an uprising.
After the uprising and until 1942 the building was sold several times. Eventually the estate was taken over by the State Treasury of the Reich.
After the war and 40 years of changing its owners it was bought in 1988 by a cooperative
Spółdzielnia Inwalidów ERA in Chorzów (today’s ERA LLC).
For 11 years the complex buildings served as rehabilitation and holiday resort "Dworek". Collecting resources for an investment and drawing up a concept of the reconstruction, expansion and modernisation required a certain amount of time.
Eventually in 1999 an investment to modernise the building and build a high standard hotel was started. In 2003 a four-star hotel Hotel Pałac Czarny Las was opened. It is now an accommodation and training base at the highest level and welcomes its Guests into its unique interior.
