Malbork Castle, Malbork
(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.

  • A lot of calm, competent, could even be interested in children. The whole tour around 3.5 hours and is what to do and what to walk. Free toilets, 2 locations. I recommend to buy souvenirs in the Castle-stamped szeląg on rzemyku 5, Knight key ring 6. Slepiki amber-earrings approximately 30-50 PLN-what we want after the exhibition these kind amber-exhibits. I recommend for everyone.

  • The castle is not arrived at, because the kids were sick. We stopped in the parking lot at the castle to take some pics. Children who by this time were the need for parking in the toilet for 2 zł per head. Oh well. Children have not been able to visit the Castle so we take back and here the parking fee. £ 25. I say $25. £ 25. Basically not much but the fact for drving test and drving test for 29 $. In the nose I have the Castle. Przejezdzaliśmy case back from the beautiful city of Gdansk to home and apart from the fact that the children do not feel well, thanks to the dishonest to use the valet parking (this lady is apparently the "manager") and zdzierskiej charge for parking odpuściliśmy a castle. Even I checked how much access to the Castle, so does not treat tourists. Parking pricing is like but it's a joke, small letters and saved the entire array. Generally, usually naciągactwo. I wouldn't mind placeniu $25 for parking but it should be clear and visible information. So nice not to know who manages the parking at the Castle, whether it is a private company or the Office of the city but within the normal European country doesn't. As for me, a shame for the city and the castle in Malbork, because I am convinced that not one tourist feel ripped off or stretched by some miserable those self-made men.

  • We move by train from Gdansk to see this extraordinary fortress. When we arrived at the station we had to put the phone's gps because we didn't reach the lockers that are outside the compound since is a km. walk approx. could indicate that with posters since many people travels by train to see the monument. We bought tickets at great, with good services and modern premises. They did not give us map, we had to ask. When we entered the large patio we didn't know where the logical visit tour started since all doors are closed, and until you do not push them you do not know if they are open and if they are open to visitors, if push it the door and is open don't know whether is output or input, how easy that is to do a few little signs with arrows and numbers. The building is huge and at the end you'll and don't know if 4 hours we were it wears all or you've been spinning like crazy. Once we entered by a gate and when we have finished one of the tours came to realize that we needed to see a large room and wanted to go back, saw us a "nice" vigilant and made us go out to the courtyard and start the full tour again and that we were alone. And speaking of the security guards and ushers the Museum, we thought that there were many perhaps by that were practically alone. When you enter a room, stick you one on your back and do not you let go, for me it is very overwhelming when they enjoy the above, have someone vigilandote you so close, walk with a bit of fear. When asked something English level is very low or not have it. They wanted only to advise two elderly women, they could not clear, but at least they tried it. These people should monitor the material presented, clear is, but they should not or notice that they are and help you when you need it, and if it is with a smile, perfect. They are only tips, but really is worth going to Malbork to see this strength.

  • This castle is great, I toootally recommend it and get a tour or an audio guide tour (devices are available for rent) which is really good too. The audio guide takes you throught the castle, points you the direction to follow and shows you on the screen the room emtrances. The castle is full of history and every room has its purpose. The galeries are amazing, this castle is worth it. If in Poland you should visit the Malbork castle.
  • Absolutely amazing place! It is a must if you are in the region. It is a long tour, you will need at least 3 hours to see all the exhibitions. You can see the outside of the castle for free but must pay to see the museum. I highly recommend getting the tickets online because the line to purchase them can be super long. The audio guide is great and very informative. Museum employees can be rather rude and only speak Polish. The parking lot is a joke, super expensive and cash only. Buy souvenirs from the museum shop by the exit since they are cheaper. Overall an outstanding experience.
  • Huge castle with good atmosphere. Make sure you hire an audio guide (available in English) as well worth it. Allow 2-3 hours. Outside is spectacular although not so much to see/do inside.
  • Europe's biggest Ghotic castle. UNESCO WHS. A must for anyone interested in history and culture. Allow time and take comfortable shoes as there is a lot of walking. Don't miss the restaurant for the best food I had in Poland! Stunning.
  • Absolutely wonderful castle! So big! Huge! And very interesting.
