Day 1
Day Trip to Malbork from Gdansk | Day Trip to Malbork from Gdansk

This morning your guide will meet at your ship for your journey outside of Gdansk to Malbork Castle. First begun by the Order of the Teutonic Knights in the late 14th century, Malbork Castle was once the capital of one of the most powerful states on the southern Baltic coast. Malbork Castle is a classic example of a medieval fortress and is the world’s largest brick castle and certainly the most impressive in Europe. The Teutonic Knights were an order of German crusaders and their rich history dates to the 12th century.

Your visit today will take you inside the castle walls, where you can visit a variety of rooms that have been restored to their former grandeur. The castle is also home to temporary exhibitions. One of the most striking features of Malbork is its existence. The castle has been under continuous reconstruction for nearly 230 years! The castle was almost completely destroyed by the end of World War II, and its restoration today is a testament to the determination of the Polish people.

As time allows at the end of the day, your guide will give you a walking overview of Gdansk before returning to your cruise ship.

Note: This excursion cannot take place on a Monday
