4.7/5 based on 1,000+ reviews on the web
One of the largest castles in the world by surface area, Malbork Castle was once home to an order of Teutonic Knights and today ranks as a World Heritage Site and national historical monument. After being nearly demolished in a battle during World War II, the castle has been completely restored. Besides the large number of knights that used the castle as a home base, Prussian kings from the 15th century also resided here until the 18th century. Wear walking shoes to tour the grounds comfortably. Consider combining your visit with a tour of the town, which offers historical sites from the same period.

  • We didn't know what to expect from "yet another castle" but seeing this one made all the others look like old stones thrown together. The castle has been restored since the second world war and they d...  read more »
  • I do not like trips to Malbork Castle. By exploring it with a group of 7-8 summer children should be planned a special route. Zwiedznie as for such children lasting 3.5 h is far too long. Besides the halls are empty, this kids is hard to imagine how it was then. Just look at the empty walls, that any impression on them. Very cool exhibition of amber and armor-new armor used in Iran, Iraq, etc.

  • Absolutely amazing place! I was visiting Gdansk and decided to visit Malbork as well as its 40-50 minutes away by train from central station in Gdansk. The guide system is the best I've seen. Don't forget... its the biggest castle in the world. I highly recommend visiting this place while in Poland!
  • Enormous, brick-built medieval castle. The grounds can be explored for free via the main drawbridge, but the high castle is a paid museum (and well worth it for the excellent audio tour). Getting to the castle from the main station is a short (20 minute) walk, but is poorly sign-posted and crosses a major road junction. A better option is to get off at the new Malbork Kałdowo station from where the castle is just a short (15 min) walk across the river footbridge with excellent views of the castle itself.
  • Rich and interesting history. Very educational. Getting a guide helps visitors understand the place
  • Worth seeing. You need a whole day to see everyyhing.
  • Huge castle, very interesting for adults and children. Inside the castle there are different museums with different artworks. Additionally, there is whole section dedicated to amber crafts.
