Rowerowy, Czarny szlak turystyczny prowadzący z Pławniowic przez Poniszowice i Słupsko do Toszka. Na początku trasy, w Pławniowicach wita turystów monumentalny pałac, który Ballestremowie wznieśli w latach 80. XIX wieku. Szczęśliwie przetrwał ostatnią wojnę i obecnie jest siedzibą Ośrodka Edukacyjno-Formacyjnego Diecezji Gliwickiej. Obok do zobaczenia Dom Kawalerski. Następnie szlak okrąża Jezioro Pławniowickie, w którym można popływać, gdyż jest to zbiornik rekreacyjny. Teraz czeka nas jazda drogami oraz ścieżkami polnymi i leśnymi. Wnet doprowadzają one do Poniszowic, w których warto podjechać do najstarszego kościółka drewnianego na całej trasie: XV-wiecznej świątyni św. Jana Chrzciciela. Dalej przez Słupsko i lasy koło Boguszyc szlak doprowadza do Toszka. Polecamy tu zobaczyć: zabytkowy układ urbanistyczny Toszka z rynkiem i klasycystycznym ratuszem (Najlepsza Przestrzeń Publiczna Województwa Śląskiego roku 2007), zamek z XIV wieku, dom Bractwa Kurkowego, kościół św. Katarzyny Aleksandryjskiej oraz Dolny Dwór.

Pławniowice
Next to the palace of the Ballestrems in Pławniowice there is a slightly smaller building erected at the same time. It features Eclectic architecture with strong neoGothic elements. This is called “Kavalier Haus”, which means “Bachelor's House”. It built was by Franz Ballestrem for his son, Leon. This building, which served as his temporary lodgings, later became a luxurious residence, designed for guests coming to Pławniowice.
Pławniowice
The palace and park in Pławniowice, in the district of Gliwice, in the commune of Rudziniec, now serve as part of the Centre for Education and Formation of Gliwice Diocese. It is easy to get there, because the center lies at the intersection of the A4 motorway and the national road No 40, between Gliwice and Strzelce Opolskie. The main part of the complex is a palace of the Ballestrem family, which was built in the years 1882-1885. It is surrounded by a small, historic park. In this park there are many interesting and exotic species of trees.
Poniszowice
In the village of Poniszowice, in the district of Gliwice, there is one of the monuments of the Wooden Architecture Trail of the Silesia province. It is the church of Saint of John the Baptist and Our Lady of Częstochowa. The history of the parish is quite long, and according to written sources, goes back to the twelfth century. The present church is the third turn on this site. It was founded at the end of the fifteenth century, and was rebuilt later and underwent minor renovations. Next to the shrine, there is a free-standing bell tower from the sixteenth century.
Taciszów
For decades, bells, which toll in the shrines all over the world, have been cast in Tarciszów near Gliwice. The Felczyńkis, a well-known Polish family of bell-founders, manufacture bells here. The tradition of the bell foundry dates back to 1808 and is associated with Kalush, a town in Eastern Galicia, and in Tarciszów to the time after World War II. One of the bells recently cast here is "The Heart of Łódź", which first sounded over Łódź in June 2012.
Rudziniec
The Gliwicki Canal connects Gliwice with the Oder river. It was built in the 1930s and opened in 1941. It was then the most modern waterway in Europe. Lovers of industrial monuments may admire, among others, impressive sluices with original machinery and equipment. The most interesting sluice is located in Rudziniec. It has two twin chambers, which can be closed with a movable gate.
