Malbork Castle Tour in Poland | Visiting the Largest Castle in the World by Land Area

Join us as we visit Malbork Castle touring the inside, exterior and interior of the largest castle in the world by land area as a day trip from Gdansk, Poland. Also known as the Castle of the Teutonic Order in Malbork (Polish: zamek w Malborku; German: Ordensburg Marienburg) built by the Teutonic Knights (religious order of crusaders) in the 13th century and is a classic example of a Medieval Fortress. As you can imagine the grounds of the castle are massive and budgeting a full day if you're coming from Gdansk is highly recommended. Aside from visiting the castle we also enjoyed eating traditional Polish food including pierogi, kielbasa and bigos along with Polish beer, ice cream and cake to round out the day. Overall, it was a great day of sightseeing and feasting and visiting Malbork Castle is something we highly recommend.

No, in the world. Oh, in the world. Wow. It is the biggest castle in the world. That is nuts. It is going to be impressive and yeah it should be a really fun day trip. We just bought our tickets and now we are waiting for the train to pull into the platform. Let's do this. Malbork Castle (zamek w Malborku - Ordensburg Marienburg) dates back to the 13th century, and it is a medieval brick castle constructed in the Gothic style. It was originally built by the Teutonic Knights, a German Roman Catholic religious order of crusaders, and expanded a few times as the number of knights grew. The Castle has an area of 143,591 square meters, making it the biggest in the world by land area. Alright, so we have made it to Malbork (Marienburg) and now we're on our way to the castle. We ended up taking the Inter City train which is a little bit faster. It got us there in 30 minutes. It is a little bit more expensive. We paid 55 złoty per person but that was the next one that was leaving otherwise we would have had to wait for like an hour and a half. So something to keep in mind but I think we are taking the cheaper train on the way back and that is only 11 złoty. But anyway that is enough information. Now let's make our way over to the castle. Alright, so we just got our tickets. It was 39.50 zł each and doesn't it already look massive this castle? Like just walking to the entrance. I think I remember reading online that like to do the audio guide or to properly explore it it can take up to 3 hours. It is massive. Woah! I'm glad we gave ourselves a lot of time because we're not going back until about 4pm so we have like 5 hours. But that also includes lunch. We randomly walked up to this restaurant because it looked kind of like Medieval. So we got like these roasted potatoes. We got the traditional sausage Kielbasa, Bigos and Pierogi. which kind of looks like sauerkraut with like bits of meat and some carrot. While you’re in Malbork Castle (zamek w Malborku - Ordensburg Marienburg), you can visit the Castle Museum, which is home to 40,000 plus artefacts. You can see religious sculptures, old weapons and military equipment, coin collections, amber wares, landscape and portrait paintings, and a whole lot more. One of our favourite spots in the castle was the Southern Terrace, complete with a rose garden and sun chairs for lounging around. we're catching the train back to Gdansk. We had a really fun day visiting the castle. It was massive. Like seriously you kind of need a full day there. And the food was great so yeah you can turn it into a full day experience. Highly recommend it. This is part of our Travel in Poland video series showcasing Polish food, Polish culture and Polish cuisine. Music by Ehrling:
