It wasn't until 1909 that the castle was acquired by the Dresden Industrialist Ernest Gütschow, who commissioned the reconstruction and modernisation of the whole object to the well-known in contemporary Europe architect Bodo Ebhardt. As a result the Czocha castle became one of the most beautiful historic sites of Lower Silesia.
