About Malbork Castle
Malbork was once the seat of power and a formal capital of the Teutonic Order. Built in the 13th century, the Castle of the German Teutonic Order in Malbork (to give it its proper name) is the biggest brick building in Europe and the largest castle (by land area) in the World. Little wonder, therefore, that since 1997 it has been declared a World Heritage Site. A tour of Malbork takes you back in time, allowing you to learn a bit about the lifestyle of these pious Knights and how they built such a massive structure so long ago. You’ll see a number of the out-walls and guard towers before heading inside the castle, which is a huge maze of tunnels, twisting towers, and vaulted rooms.
During the tour you will discover how the Teutonic Order, which was controlled by militarised monks, carried out crusades against the pagans of the Baltic coast, as well as against the Christian Kingdom of Poland. The sightseeing includes the low, middle and high castle, and our tour also includes a stop for a BBQ lunch with local craft beer.
Our tour includes pick-up from your hotel or other accommodation in Gdansk and a 6 hour tour, 3 hours of which are with a guide at the castle.
As always, our tours are small and personal. Our guides are knowledgeable and will provide plenty of useful information – both on site and on the way there – so that you get the very best from your time.
