Otmuchow is a town in Nysa County in Opole Voivodeship with 5,317 inhabitants. Otmuchow has a picturesque setting between two lakes, Lake Glebinowskie and Lake Otmuchowskie. In spring and summer the town is filled with flowers, partly as the result of the spring flower festival that is held here.

From the 14th century until 1810, Otmuchow belonged to the bishops of Wroclaw. In Otmuchow is a castle, situated on a hill, earlier separated from the town by a moat and walls. The castle is Gothic-Renaissance, with baroque elements, originally three-winged. Inside there are rarely seen broad stone stairs (so-called horse stairs). In the courtyard - a medieval well (reaching the foot of the castle hill). A wall enclosing the courtyard with a Gothic entrance gate from the 15th century. A vast landscape park surrounding the castle.
