Take a guided tour or rent an audio guide to explore the castle's rich history, fascinating legends, and incredible architecture. Learn about the rise and fall of the Teutonic Order, the castle's role in medieval warfare, and the lives of the knights who once inhabited its walls. One of the highlights of Malbork Castle is the Grand Master's Palace, the largest building within the castle complex.
