Castle Tourist Spot
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.

Where to stay in Malbork

Even though many visitors come to Malbork on a day trip from nearby Gdansk, the city offers plenty of lodgings for travelers seeking overnight stay. If you come to Malbork for its history, look for a mid-range hotel near the famous Gothic castle. The city lacks five-star accommodations, but you can choose from budget-friendly rooms set in renovated historical buildings. The city's cozy inns offer another economical option, providing airy rooms with free Wi-Fi just a walk away from the World Heritage-listed castle.

  • This was on our list to visit whilst touring Poland. The Castle certainly has a wow factor. It took 60 years to restore it after WW2 Allow 2.5 hrs for the visit  more »
  • The entrance fee comes with a very detailed audio guide. The place is huge and has many displays of original and restored old stuff. There's 3 main blocks, A (need about 45 mins to complete), B (20 mi...  more »
  • As a building this is an interesting place with a fascinating history. Add to this the multiple exhibitions and it is a very good day out. You may not be interested in it all, but there are multiple e...  more »

  • Great idea for a family trip whether you're a fan of castles and nights or not. It's a very big castle with a great history. We spent a full day there and had a tour guide who showed us around and told us many amazing stories and facts!
  • The audio tour is terrific. It supplements a terrific location and there are lots of wow moments. Children had a great time.
  • Very large castle. Lots to see (even if lots of it is reconstructed from various centuries!). Audioguides had more effort put into them than some I've known. Great views from the top tower of the 'high castle'. Impressive & worthwhile.
  • Malbork is a town with an amazing castle and UNESCO World Heritage site. It once consisted of three parts: the outer one, which is ruined and not open for visits, the Middle Castle and the Upper Castle. be sure to visit the Palace of the Grand Masters - a magnificent piece of Gothic architecture . The interiors are beautiful, so make sure you visit the Winter and Summer Chambers. There are many exhibitions throughout the year, displays of amber and a collection of military hardware..
  • What can I say in addition to what has already been penned here. I truly wonderful piece of architecture, steeped in history with some fascinating stories attached. Well worth a visit and you won't be disappointed.
