This castle is old but much of it was dismantled many years ago to use the bricks for another project. So there isn't very much to see. With the audioguide you can go through the historic castle in less than an hour. There is a...More

The castle is not very big, but really ancient and amazing. The train from Malbork takes some 40 minutes, and It takes some 2-3 hours to walk around the castle and inside. You will visit several museums - museum of the bottles in cellar ("piwnica"),...More

Around 308, the German Teutonic Order moved its official headquarters from Venice to Malbork, where they remained for nearly 150 years. They called their castle "Marienburg", meaning the "Castle of Mary". To Poland, this Teutonic Order symbolizes a German invasion and domination. These Catholic killer...More

This was a really interesting old castle. It has the highest lavatory in the world. Obviously it was built for health reasons also other than just as a toilet ;-)

This is one of those major attractions which could be a world winning one if only it was presented properly. The castle itself is amazing, it's very well preserved and hugely original. Sadly, its exhibitions are poorly described and random in subject. Getting any sort...More

Highly recommended - absolutely worth going there when in Poland. The castle is enormous, with both the high castle and the keep. Reserve 2.5-3 hours for the whole tour. Two tips: 1) choose the electronic guide, you can skip, repeat, it tells you everything -...More

Its cool, small castle - museum was closed so we couldn't see Teutonic Knights but cathedral was open which was really old with paintings on walls and gothic architecture. Also it includes the biggest/tallest/longest toilet in Europe.

One of the only attractions in Kwidzyn, but definitely worth the stop. You can tour the church for free, but if you want to tour the rest of the castle you have to pay for a reasonably priced tour. I didn't have time to go,...More
