    Train from Gdansk

    The Castle from the Train

    As we found, having learned no Polish when we arrived at the station, and with no train map anywhere in sight, finding the right train is not as easy as travel fora and adverts for the castle made out.

    Though we saw a notice about a train to Malbork, the train which went there was actually headed for Elblag. The journey was about an hour there and about 45 minutes coming back on the Intercity train. From the station, turn right and follow the tower of the castle as it comes into view.

    A warning- unlike the bus system, on which we managed through confusion to get to the airport without paying, we encountered conductors on both journeys.

    Bus and train to Malbork

    by Raimix Updated Jun 18, 2009

    3.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    I used both bus and train heading Malbork and going back. I should say using train was more comfortable, cheaper, not so long distance to travel than with bus. One more thing I didn’t liked bus is road reconstruction works, making big gridlocks.
    Ticket cost about 10 Zloty one way (June 2008).

    From Gdansk to Malbork and back

    The day before going to Malbork I picked up the timetable for the trains at the Tourist Office in Gdansk. I decided to take the train leaving Gdansk at 9:34 and arriving in Malbork at 10:40. That would give me around 4 hours to explore the castle, as it closes at 15:00 in low season.

    The trains leave from Gdansk Glowny (the central station) so I went there in the morning and bought the ticket over the counter. The ticket was 13.50 zloty (January 2014). It was a regional train and made quite a lot of stops along the way. I had read that coming from Gdansk it is good to sit on the right side as you will get a nice view over the castle when arriving to Malbork, so when the seat opposite me became free I moved there. The weather was not nice and unfortunately the view was not great either.

    The station before Malbork is called Malbork Kaldowo and according to my map it seemed to be at the same distance from the castle as Malbork. I asked the man in front of me but he wasn’t from the area and didn’t know. Well, I stayed on the train and continued to Malbork, but saw from the train window that it is okay to go off in Malbork Kaldowo too.

    After visiting the castle I asked at the Tourist Office in town when the next trains were leaving. One was leaving too soon so I decided to go to a café and take the train at 16:14. To my surprise the ticket back to Gdansk was more expensive, 19 zloty. It turned out that this train was an intercity train. It arrived late, but it doesn’t make so many stops along the way and is faster than the regional trains.

    THE  BRIDGE  OVER  THE  NOGAT  RIVER

    Malbork is located in north-central Poland, 60 km (37 mi) southeast of city of Gdansk (German Danzig) located on the Baltic Sea.

    I got to Malbork by a car. Driving from the south (road No 1 to Gdansk) turn right a few kilometers/miles before city of Tczew to a road No 50, drive eastward 17 km (11 miles) to enter Malbork.

    To the castle: drive straight by the bridge over the Nogat (look at my picture), then turn left as I remember well on the second lights and again left following the direction signs to the castle.

    I found a parking lot just in front of the entrance to the Castle Museum.


    Driving distances from:
    my hometown Tychy: 540 km (335 mi)
    Gdansk: 60 km (37 mi)
    Warsaw: 310 km (193 mi)
    Krakow: 570 km (354 mi)
    Wroclaw: 450 km (280 mi)

    We went from Torum to Gdansk by train, but we made a stop in Malbork (195 Zl)
    The trip was very comfortable and is not long, about two hours the first stretch and just over an hour on the second.
    The trains are very comfortable, one was Intercity and are not particularly expensive
    As we had suitcases we took a taxi to the castle and in a hotel right at the entrance , they let us leave our bags during the visit

    Fuimos desde Torum a Gdansk en tren , pero hicimos una parada en Malbork ( 195 Zl )
    El viaje fue muy cómodo y no es largo , aproximadamente dos horas el primer tramo y poco más de una hora el segundo .
    Los trenes son muy cómodos , uno era Intercity y no son especialmente caros
    Como llevábamos maletas cogimos un taxi para ir al castillo y en un hotel que está justo a la entrada nos permitieron dejar las maletas

    Malbork is an hour from Gdansk in the north of Poland and 3 hours from Torun. The trains are the best way to get around. The train station is about 15 minutes from the castle. You could easily visit Malbork as a daytrip from Gdansk.
