    European largest Middeleaval castle Marienburg Malbork
    The largest medieval castle in Europe and what an impressive sight this is. What an interesting historical place. Very worthwhile to come to Malbork for this. Unfortunately, English is spoken very badly here, but people try to do their best. They are friendly and helpful despite the language barrier. I was in this museum on Easter Saturday. Unfortunately, all indoor areas were closed. Only able to visit the general castle route. This could have been communicated better in advance. But the audio tour is good and informative and gives a good atmosphere and impression of this huge complex. Take the time for this museum because you will be on the road for hours through these immense buildings. Highly recommendable.

    Astonishing experience! A phenomenal experience!
    Astonishing castle and grounds! Magnificent restoration and presentation. What a day to visit this jaw dropping area. The castle and grounds is a site to behold. Whether you walk the exterior grounds and enjoy the countryside and river or venture to the enormous area that this castle occupies is a fantastic day . Loved crossing the river and seeing the magnificent architecture. The signs to the main ticket area are fine. But remember you need an Audio headset. You won’t be allowed in the castle without them! Once in you visit an astonishing amount of rooms with so much to see. Some are quite plain while the majority feature so many ornaments and detail. Many are a site to behold. Depending on speed you can l breeze through in less than three hours but the presentation is intoxicating. What a fantastic adventure. Two day visit. I was annoyed by the lack of notices for needing headsets to enter the castle and going back and forwards to the ticket office bu the overall experience is spectacular.

    Great experience
    Great Castle, fully automated audio guide. Animal daycare for tour time. The history tour takes approximately 3 hours showing a huge part of the castle, so be ready for a lot of walking.

    Great trip, well worth a visit
    We decided to visit the castle for something else to do when visiting Gdansk, as we have been here quite a few times now. The castle is huge and very impressive, be prepared for a lot of walking! It's easy to get to by train from Gdansk, watch out for different prices and train speeds. We got an intercity there (30 mins and 19 zloty each) and a slower one back (14 zloty). The castle is about a 10 min walk from the station. Malbork itself isn't great, we hoped to buy a sandwich to eat in the castle but couldn't find anywhere that sold them. The town is mainly fast food and inside the castle it was pretty much the same. So take food with you! As others have said the ticket queue is massive, we waited around 45 mins but no queue for the audio guides. We did go in August so it was packed, and loads of groups of people which is a bit annoying. We did the castle/ historic tour which most people seem to do. The audio guide is excellent, and you get to go into most of the castle. Highly recommended, but be prepared for hoardes of people if you go in the summer. Ideally buy a ticket online, we should have done that.

    Greatest Brick castle
    This od really astonishing experience. Greatest Brick castle on the world (more than a milion). Reason was easy, on this area IT is short of rock, do teutonic knights made an advantages on builiding castle, no wiosen (as prussians, lithuenians) but made of solid material, not easy to burnt. Castle is great, made of three areas (low castle, medium and high), ITI is higly recommend to visit IT with guide (im my opinion audio guides are not so good). Also we were with 6 years old boy, but we came take a tour made for children. Best experience

    All day trip.
    Big and crowdy, we paid for audio guide and tickets online and that was the best option. Just arrived between 13.00 -13.00 and entered the castle. Be ready for up to 4-5 hours of sightseeing, breaks advisable.

    Green tour very good.
    Being a Monday and no English speaking tour guides available, we did the audio tour for 15 zloty each. It was very good. The guide is gps fitted, so when you get to a certain point the guide tells you about where you are standing. And it's OK to take as long as you like at any spot, as the guide just picks up when you start walking again. An amazing structure indeed. I'd like to know how many bricks there are! (Estimate 12 to 15 million??)

    Electricity and heating bill might be expensive
    The biggest brick castle in the world is a MUST visit when you're in the north of Poland. You can see how majestic it looks from afar. There's is so many interesting facts and history about the place. It's something that everyone should experience by themselves. The only bad part that we found was the temporary exhibition, which we don't even remember its name. It was too detailed and didn't highlight something relevant for the castle. Also be wary of visiting at the same time as a group, as the real guide will drown the sound of the audio guide, if this is your method. It's on the expensive side but totally worth every penny. Please don't miss the opportunity to visit this UNESCO heritage site.

We bought tickets online, paid almost 49 pln for each ticket. When we came to the castle entrance, the guardians refused to let us in because we didn't take audioguides. We explained that we were not going to use them, because of the covid19 and also because we have a small child with us. Besides, there was no info on the site about the obligation to take the audioguide. By the way, just to take the audioguide you need to wait in a queue for about an hour, at least. It was a very nerve-wrecking experience, and the first time when we were forced to take the audioguide in a museum...

The castle is easily reached by train from Gdansk, although we caught the wrong train on our return and ended up spending a very cold hour at a station in a field (beware!). Follow the others to the castle, the tower of which you can see in the distance. The town itself is very industrial and not that attractive. Directions for tickets and collecting an audio guide were easy. The guide is simple to use and finds your position by GPS in the castle so if you move on quickly or take longer it catches up / waits for you. The speech is clear and interesting without overdoing the facts/history. There are a few sections were we still managed to skip by mistake, one being the tower. By the time we realised our mistake we couldn't be bothered to retrace our steps. I popped in to look at the restaurant and although we didn't eat there it looked cosy and smelt amazing. I have been to many castles but this was unique and well worth a visit.

Amazing place to visit, with loads to see and learn about.
We took the train from Gdansk to Malbork, with the journey and visit easily done in a day or less.
An audio guide is provided in the entrance cost, and I would advise getting, as it gives a lot of context and history to the castle as you walk around. Overall, we spent roughly 2hrs here, which was plenty to see everything.

The castle is great. It’s big, majestic, you can fill the Teutonic history. The downside is that it’s also very popular. The crowd of tourists can be irritating. It’s best to see it at the beginning or end of the season. Recently I visited Malbork in the first week of September and even though the tourist traffic was not that bad I still decided to go take a tour around the castle first thing in the morning and I was right.

Since the place is big it will take you more than a couple of hours to see it all. Audio guide is really good and this way you can be more flexible about your sightseeing. Take a coffee brake, chill on a bench etc. You can skip an exhibition or see it twice if you’d like. I really recommend audio guide.
There are also guided tours. I took the Castle Tour - it takes about 3 hours and weather it’s enjoyable or not depends on guide themselves. I’ve been on this tour twice (couple of years apart). First was a great experience the second one (recent one) was a so-so tour. You’ll never know. I wish there was a longer walk on castle grounds since the tour is mostly inside, more stories about castle daily life. Maybe The Green Rout have more of that (it’s a shorter tour).

A walk around is a must do. Take the time to do this, walk across the river to see the castle in it’s all, try to catch the view in a golden hour. Also, if your spending the night or leaving late, check the castle after dark, maybe try a night tour if you have time.

Castle is a good day out from Gdańsk. Take the slow train to Malbork Kaldowo. This is only 10 minutes from castle. The train is cheaper than Inter City and you save the time of a shorter train journey by having a shorter walk than from main station. We took Uber going: cost £42 so a lot dearer and impossible to use on return; train was really only way.

It is a lot of walking. Buy tickets ahead online so you have to queue only for audio guide. You must choose an hour slot to enter, perhaps due to Covid presently.

The audio guide is good but becomes tedious near the end. It is simply too long. Shame there is less empathetic type commentary- what it is like to be a Teutonic knight, what the Grand Master does, for example - and more actors role modelling would add to the experience. A video would be great, too!

It is OK if you like castles and history, but don’t go for a fun day.

If you like History and Castles you will be very happy! This Castle was an important place of the Teutonic order, his architecture is very typical with many donjons and ramparts in red brick. The size of the castle his impressive. The guided visit permits to understand well the history of this place. It is my favourite castle.

Came here last week with my son and had a very enjoyable visit. On arrival make sure that you purchase the audio guide, as we found this very useful. Not only did it guide you around so that you did not miss anything (with clear instructions of where to go next - even displaying pictures on the handset to highlight where you should be) but it also gave plenty of interesting information - and it worked perfectly as it knows where you actually are, so you can walk at your own pace and always have the correct audio (without having to press buttons or look out for numbers etc). We spent a total of three hours doing the tour (without any stops and without spending too much time at each exhibit) so, if you are planning on stopping for food or drink or literally seeing everything in detail then you will definitely need almost a full day.

Ticket to Malbork castle coasts 35 zlotys (including audio guide). Tour takes approximately 3 hours. An audio guide will take you through all parts of this large castle. The navigation is excellent, you can't even get lost with it. It is a very cleverly designed system, so visitors can move around the complex without a guide (a person) and see everything important and learn an incredible amount of information. Takeing pictures without flash is allowed.

There is a restaurant inside of the castle. They offer Polish and vegetarian cuisine, desserts and drinks there.

Toilets are at the ticket office and as well inside the complex. There are several small shops with souvenirs out and in the castle too.

Around noon there was a very long queue at the ticket office (about 30 meters), so I think it is better to go and buy tickets in the morning.

Fascinating and beautiful brick castle that was severely damaged by nazi aggression in WW2. The Poles have done an outstanding job restoring it to its former glory. I went on a Monday, during which only limited outside tours are available. Despite that, for only 10 zloty I was afforded a headset in English that gave me great info about the castle and its history. It is an amazingly beautiful castle, a must see if in the Gdansk area. Where to park was not clear and I ended up paying way too much to park in a neighboring hotels lot. Overall a great experience.
