The Castle of the Teutonic Order in Malbork was built in the 13thcentury by the Teutonic Knights as a fortified monastery on the southeastern bank of the Nogat, and has served as one of several Polish royal residences over the centuries. It is the largest brick building in Europe, and the largest castle in the world by area, sprawling over 52 acres. Originally called the Marienburg, the castle was majorly damaged during World War II and subsequently faithfully restored. Today the castle hosts exhibitions and a museum. The Gothic red brick castle is a UNESCO World Heritage Site for its unique architecture and cultural signficance.
It has 3 separate sections - the High, Middle, and Lower Castles, separated by dry moats and towers. Explore the rooms, tunnels, towers and courtyards of the historic castle complex and learn about its history with an audio-tour or guided tour.
