Malbork Castle Museum, Malbork

One of the largest castles in the world by surface area, Malbork Castle Museum 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.

  • This place is massive, if you are doing inside and outside of the castle. I would say allow yourself 4 hours depending on your walking pace and how much time to spend looking at sights and relics. I repeat, it's massive! The free audio tour, take it, it's worth while. And if you go in fall or winter, make sure you wear appropriately because it's cold in and outside the castle.
  • Wonderful history and castle. They provide a headset for your own personalized walking tour. If it's a nice day and not crowded, you'll find that it's your own adventure of opening and closing random massive castle doors to hidden passages. Compared to other castle tours this one was unique and adventurous.
  • I have seen a few castles but this one is definitively the most amazing. The audio tour is just incredible, using latest in beacon technology to guide you around the endless exhibit halls and adapting to your pace. If there is time for only one castle in your life it's definitively this one If I could I would give it a six star rating.
  • Simply amazing, a must-see die anyone interested in Medieval Times. A very impressive castle, not too far away from Danzig (max. 2 Hours I think).
  • Beautiful castle built by the tectonic nights. You could spend the whole day here, as it is very large. It was finished in 1406, so a lot of history here.

Where to stay in Malbork

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.
