I’m giving it 4 stars instead of 5 because of the lack of English explanations - and lack of signage overall even in Polish like what was this room used for....

Luckily I speak Polish and a lovely lady Maria asked us if we’d like a private tour (in Polish which was fine for my husband and I) and it was awesome - thoroughly explained the history and absolutely everything - it took around 2 hours.
If it wasn’t for her and explaining everything it would have been impressive sure, but wouldn’t know much about the castle, the people, the history, etc

We visit this castle every single time we visit LW. It is incredible especially basements and 'torture tower'. Decent ticket prices and friendly and knowledgeable staff, especially lady who works there for 25+ years. Thank you.

I was looking forward to visiting the Bishop`s castle as I`v heard a great deal about the place. Aesthetically the destination does not in any way disappoint; the small old town, the beautiful brick church, the lazy river curling around the castle- picture perfect. First challenge happened at entrance; the museum does not offer payment by card, only cash. I really had to dig around in my pockets to find enough to cover the ticket, and in my opinion it is unacceptable in this day and time to have a moderately large museum which does not accept payment by card. When I entered the exhibition the next disappointment befell me; absolutely no signs or notes were in other languages than Polish. Not a single one, except for signs reminding guests to to touch anything. This is also an unacceptable feature of a museum if they wish to entertain foreign guests. Maybe the lack of non-Polish information is an expression of desire to take on a guide, as there were a really pushy guide outside the museum grounds. When he offered a guided tour in German and I politely said no, he asked "Why ever not" in a grumpy voice. That encounter is of course not the museum`s fault, but there are plenty of faults they could take on- especially related to the lack of languages.

The castle is very impressive. No kidding, if you in the region it is definitively worth the trip. We didn't take a guide, but had advantage of talking to the security staff. They were extremely friendly, pointed us to the most important items, and explained the history. Thanks to them, we could move with our own pace and have great interaction with these experts. It was great.

There are other attractions in town not mentioned in "thinks to do" for Lidzbark. One is the Orangery of Krasicki ~ at Ignacego Krasickiego 2. Two wings stairs leads to the Orangery on the top of hill. Very picturesque.

Behind the Orangery, there is an old cemetery with the Way of the Cross. If you follow, it will lead you to the Golgotha t the top of the hill, and old Pieta statue. Beautiful.

This was a highlight of my visit to this region of Poland. Great architecture and deep history, I don't know which was more fascinating. Caste was built between 1350-1401 as a seat of the Warmian bishops, later going into the hands of Teutonic Order... The last residing bishop was Ignacy Krasicki - (well know Polish poet and playwriter)...The castle is a beauty... stroll thru the corridors, courtyard... all of them adorn with cloisters (the only historical cloisters in Poland which have not architecturall changed).
I am suggesting to hire a guide - to tell you more of the castle's history.
At oposite side of the gothic castle the hotel is located ( used to belog to the castle as well - but built different time as the castle itself)... happy touring everyone!

This town is beautiful. It is worth it to see. In the summer, every Friday and Saturday you can enjoy jazz concerts in the middle of town.

We popped in with two small kids just to give them experiences of seing a castle its own. We did have no much opportunities to reed all infos or look paintings well as kids were running but we loved the armor and axes collection also the furnitures.
Kids loved look in and out:)
Staff very nice and understanding. Lovely place! We had nice coffee after at Krasicki hotel. Parking for free. Entry 14 zl - £3 per adult. Kids up to 7 years free.
Small shop with suvenires on site.

The palace/castle of the bishop princes of Lidzbark Warminski has somehow survived more or less intact even though it is in the debatable lands between Russia, Poland and Prussia. It is a geaqt building and part of it is occupied by the Hotel Krasicki. Inside there are limited displays of weaponry and something of life under the bishops, but I couldn't help feeling that, for such an important administrative hub, much more could be said.

Perhaps thaqt's just me being picky - the building itself is both beautiful and impressive. I did not take to the more modern art displayed on the upper floors. Mostly pretty ordinary and nothing grabbed my attention.

Overall, it is a must-see site and hopefully the ongoing work will improve the displays
