There's several parts to see here all arranged around a large courtyard. Big brick built tower on one side, great views from the top, old granary and administration building opposite. Includes a piece of wall painting by Copernicus himself from his 5 years spent here.

Castle looks very interesting outside, with tower, high walls and beuatifull yard. However, during my visit tower was close for visitors. Castle has great position, high on the river bank and very close to the main square of Olsztyn.

If you interested in history, religions or old design it might be fun for you. Museum is pretty small and it takes you maximum a couple of hours to visit.
