It was the Teutonic Master’s headquarters and the capital of the entire Teutonic State.

Guided tour Marienburg super, transport a cheek

We had booked this tour for 6 strong men and were picked up directly from the hotel on time. What drove up in front of the hotel was an Opel Zafira with two additional emergency seats, which we squeezed into. It was just a cheek. The safety was not given, buckles, leg room, freedom of movement was not given, for an hour's drive. In addition, a driver who drove very unsafe and carelessly. We were happy to come back safely. The tour of the Marienburg was excellent for this and compensated us a little. We have learned a lot about history. The tour is highly recommended.
