Malbork Castle, Malbork

(4.7/5 based on 1,100+ 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.

  • Malbork Castle is the largest castle in terms of area in the world. Is on the list of UNESCO World Heritage. It is worth to explore with a guide that very interesting talks about the history of the place.

  • We enjoyed our four hours at the castle on a sunny April day. We took a day trip from Gdansk and travelled to Malbork on the train. We didn't find any queues but April isn't high season in Poland. The...  more »

  • 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.
