There's several parts to see here all arranged around a large courtyard. Big brick built tower on one side, great views from the top, old granary and administration building opposite. Includes a piece of wall painting by Copernicus himself from his 5 years spent here.

The castle is a beautiful building, a large, but not huge brownish-red palace with a magnificent tower. The exhibition inside is quite interesting, mostly about the life and work of Copernicus, but there are also remnants of ancient times that were excavated in the vicinity....More

Castle looks very interesting outside, with tower, high walls and beuatifull yard. However, during my visit tower was close for visitors. Castle has great position, high on the river bank and very close to the main square of Olsztyn.

We visited the castle museum and some moments to share: one will have a so called "guide" to accompany Your visit. No real language skills, at least this guide we had. We expected more castle visit than the mixed exposition of archaeological findings, Nicolaus Copernicus...More

After visiting many European castles, this one seems smaller in size, however, it is just as beautiful and interesting. If you love Copernicus, this place is a must to see. Many wonderful exhibits.

Beautiful castle to experience some history. It does not take long to look around and the view from the castle tower is wonderful.

If you interested in history, religions or old design it might be fun for you. Museum is pretty small and it takes you maximum a couple of hours to visit.
