Description: 

The castle was built in 13th century on site of former fortified settlement. That is why it has an unusual horseshoe shape. The inhabitants were 12 order knights and a commander representing the Teutonic Order power on these lands. In 1454 the inhabitants of Toruń instigated an uprising against the Teutonic Order; they took over the castle and pulled it down. Nowadays, the only remains of the castle are Gdanisko, a former lavatory tower, and picturesque ruins. The ruins serve as a background for many concerts, festivals and tournaments.
