Blacksmiths, cooks, shoemakers, tailors will share with you the secrets of their craft. Juggling with flags is another attraction we have prepared for you. Together, we can also forge a sword of Damascus steel.
We didn’t forget about the youngest! For the children, we have prepared a “Children’s Castle” with theatres, jugglers, workshops and games. Several animators will conduct various activities related to the Middle Ages with children. This year’s Siege of Malbork is also a unique opportunity to visit the castle. Especially for Friday and Saturday evenings, we have prepared a “Knight’s Adventure at the Castle”.
