Malbork Castle is the castle of the Virgin Mary, the ancient capital of the Teutonic Order, the largest Gothic fortress in Europe, a UNESCO heritage site. Not without reason has Malbork Castle been called “the largest mountain of bricks north of the Alps”. The fortress is stern, majestic, and at the same time beautiful This thirteenth-century seat of the Teutonic Knights came into being after the Order’s headquarters were moved from distant Venice. The castle also has a unique collection of amber ornaments.
For about 10 Euro you can take guided tours through the inner Castle. Walking around on the outer Castle is free. For doing this Cache you don’t need to pay any entrance.
You can park at N54 02.574 E19 01.534, that’s not far away from Station 1. The place itself isn’t very nice, but around that place you have a good look onto the castle.
Station 1 is a white round plastic canister, a little bit bigger than a film canister. It gives you information where the next station will be.
Please put the hint back into it’s place and don’t take it with you !
To get to Station 2, take the bridge and go onto the castle ground. It will lead you to the outer parts of the castle, you're searching a small plastic medicine box. Formerly it was a film canister, but that one seems to have disappeared.
Of course, if you are stupid enough, you have the great opportunity to fall down from high places and injure yourself while climbing some walls, but for Station 2 and Station 3 there is only very, very little climbing necessary. A five year old child could do it. So don’t bring yourself in Danger! If you don’t see how to get on something, don’t take the direct way and climb, just walk a little around and try another way. Take a little bit care of your head when it’s windy, in the outer parts of the castle there are many loose bricks that might come down.
For Station 2 it’s the same as for Station 1: Please put the hint back into it’s place and don’t take it with you !
The Final is a plastic box 12x12x12 cm and contains a porcelain dog, shoe shining stuff, a bracket, a heart stamp and a logbook.
