Ketrzyn Things to Do: 7 reviews and 17 photos
Dating back to 1360-70, the Gothic Teutonic Castle is Ketrzyn's greatest tourist attraction. Its three wings and a wall with a marvellous Gothic gate surround a cobblestone courtyard in the shape of, approximately, a quadrangle. One of its corners houses a round brick tower, added to the building in 1622.
The castle is in excellent condition for such an old structure. You would never guess that it had to be rebuilt after the damage done to it by the Soviet Army in 1945. Its exterior was reconstructed in 1962-67, according to 19th century drawings by C. Steinbrecht.
It now houses a public library and a museum with a collection of Gothic sculpture, old handicraft, and 17th-19th century furniture.
