המקום מאוד מרשים
הטירה מתוחזקת להפליא-למרות הפגיעות שסבלה משך המאות שעברו אתה מטייל בהסטוריה של צפון פולין
הסיור בטירה על כל אגפיה עורך כ-3 שעות
מרחק של 10 דקות טיול רגלי ממרכז מלבורק לטירה בדרך שטוחה מאוד נעימה .
הכניסה כרוכה בתשלום
The place is very impressive
The castle is beautifully maintained - despite the damage it has suffered over the centuries you have been traveling in the history of northern Poland
The tour of the castle on all its wings takes about three hours
A 10-minute walk from the center of Malbork to the castle in a very pleasant flat way.
Admission required

Malbork castle is one of the most imposing Castles in Europe.For many years it has been a Castle, i must se.
A Raini day in October we entered this impressive castle. The Teotonic Knights built this Castle in the 1300 Century and stablished .a power in the Baltic. This Castle stretch over 20 HA,. An imposing beautiful brikstone Castle in 3 sections.The last section is a keep and Monastery for the Knights. Sadly that the russians in 2. world war demolished the castle, i gues it was not nescesary.Today fully restored and one of top 5 attraktions in Poland..

I visited Malbork on a beautiful, sunny, late fall day! It was an excellent experience. I did take the train from Gdansk, and while the train itself was easy, figuring out what train what platform, etc. was entirely confusing. But I made it to Malbork, and took the easy 15 minute walk there. There are plenty of places for a drink, snack, or meal on the way, so if you are not in a hurry you can take advantage of a refreshment. The visitor center ticket counter is very easy to find. I would strongly recommend taking the audio guide as well. Unlike audio guides at other museums, this one is perfect and walks you through the entire castle. It is easy to follow along and has good, well paced information. My tour took about 2 and a half hours, but I hurried through some sections such as weaponry and armor. As others have noted, the castle does have a fascinating history and I would highly recommend visiting it. I would suggest scheduling at least 3 hours so you don't have to rush. I would have liked to see them have a cafe for snacks and drinks rather than just a restaurant. Also, the staff in general seem disinterested, but I suppose that might be because most visitors rely on the audio guide. I only ran into two school groups, but because of the size of the castle, it is easy to stay ahead of or get behind them. You can purchase a return train ticket at the train station for an easy ride back to Gdansk.

At the intersection of ul. Walowa and ul. Glowna (ul. means street) walk across the River bridge to Malbork Castle grounds, turn left and walk to an outdoor eatery where the saurkraut is slow cooked for 10 hours in an OLD ANTIQUE pot and the meats are smoked. Unbelievably the best traditional food that we have eaten, Smoked Pork Knuckles, heated Keilbasa, perfectly roasted potatoes, Bigos and much more. You have to try the Kozel Beer. All at a reasonable price. Picnic tables to eat there or do a take-out. Lots of old antiques on this property, a must see!!!!
No need to even enter the Castle.

An exceptionally good experience. The restoration that has taken place after the almost total destruction during WW2 is something unbelievable: the castle looks as it was originally. The audio guide is absolutely perfect and a must to have.
The restaurant offers light meals but with traditional food, large portions at reasonable prices. The only great disappointment was the opening time. We arrived just before midday but discovered that winter time was already operating: closure at 3 pm.
We enjoyed the first half of the visit, we had a quick bite to eat and suddenly realised that the second part had to be rushed in less than an hour. Such a shame because the weather was fantastic (20 degrees) and it started to get dark only around 6 pm.
We had a return train to Gdansk at 6pm and we had to wander around Malbork town with absolutely nothing to see or do.

I am a great lover of history and castles. I am a tour guide in Europe and I have seen many castle. Malbork is among the most impressive one.
You need around 2.5 - 3 hours to visit the castle but thanks to the Audio Guides the visit is easy, smooth and the explanations are excellent.Great place to visit.

So sad that it had to be restored after being nearly destroyed during WW2. It had been standing there since built by the Teutonic knights and is truly magnificent. We took kind of a quick pass through, but it would be great to do a more in depth tour and find out more details. Lots to explore!

Built in the 13th century by the Teutonic Knights who were also crusaders. It is constructed entirely of brick and is the largest castle of brick. It is also the largest in land area. It was never conquered until it was bombed into submission by the Nazis. There is a lot to see and all is very interesting.

We were staying in Gdansk and took the train to Marbork to see the castle ( 30 minutes and 17Zl single on the express train).
It was well worth the effort,
Visually stunning on approach and equally interesting inside. The castle has a long and chequered history and it covers a vast area.
Audio guides are essential if you to enjoy the trip. You could easily get lost and disorientated without them.
Given that the castle was seriously damaged during the last war, it is a wonderful place to visit now - after it's fabulous re build.
