1. Malbork Castle: Private Tour from Gdansk, Sopot or Gdynia
Built by the Teutonic Knights in the thirteenth century, Marlbork Castle remains today the largest castle in the world by land area. Your private tour of this historic landmark begins with a pickup from any location in Gdansk, Sopot, or Gdynia and a beautiful countryside drive to the town of Malbork. On arrival at the castle grounds, you will be led through the medieval complex which consists of a monastery, fortress, and Grand Master Palace — all built entirely of bricks. Located on land that was variously occupied by foreign powers and partitioned in the centuries after its construction, Malbork Castle lies in the crosshairs of historical events that have profoundly shaped modern Europe. Get acquainted with this history firsthand and explore the nooks and crannies of a massive castle that is now a UNESCO World Heritage Site. On your tour, you will also get a sense of everyday courtly life in the medieval times with glimpses of a medieval kitchen, bathroom, prison, Grand Refectory, armory, and amber collection. After sightseeing and some time for refreshment and perusing souvenirs, you will be driven back to a point of your choosing in Gdansk, Sopot, or Gdynia.
