Malbork Castle (Marienburg)

Marienburg - or the Malbork Castle in Poland is the high light of our travel in the country. It was named after the Saint or Patron, "St. Mary" that's why it is also called "Mary's Castle". Considered the most largest or biggest brick castle in the world, and one of the world's heritage.

As much as i adore "Fachwerkhäuser" or the traditional half-timbered houses here in DE, i find the red brick houses of Holland and in Poland fascinating and unique. And i never thought that i will see the most largest brick castle in the world... Malbork Brick Castle.

It took hours of walking inside and around the castle, there are museums inside but we are not allowed to take pictures, so most of the photos i posted here are taken outside.

if you want more informations about the castle please visit wikipedia


  1. The castle looked serene and peaceful with the view of the lake in the first photo.

  2. They are so beautiful that worth a long walk.

  3. I bet the hours flew by with so much to see. The pics are breathtaking. Thanks so much for the tour.
