Szymbark Castle is a spectacular, well-preserved ruin of a 14th-century castle in the village of Szymbark, near Iława (Warmian-Masurian Voivodeship). The castle was built by the Pomesan Chapter and then transformed into the ancestral residence of the most distinguished family of East Prussia – von Finckenstein. It is the second largest Gothic castle in Poland, after Malbork. The castle survived World War II intact, but was plundered and burned by the Red Army after the liberation of Poland. According to various sources, the castle is one of the places where the famous amber room is hidden.

The Zamek Szymbark Foundation, which has been supervising the castle revitalization process since 2019, together with the Patron of Culture, the Heritage Poland Group Foundation, together with the event producer, Progresja Music Zone sp. z o.o. begin a series of cultural events as part of the „Castle Nights” project with a concert by Migde Ure.

In accordance with the applicable general law, the ticket may be returned only in the event of cancellation of the event or in the event of a significant change in conditions (change of place, date, artist).

Do I have to print an electronic ticket to enter the event area?
No – it is enough to present a readable barcode and / or QR code on any medium.

Not. The ticket entitles you to one-time entry to the event area.
