What to expect

This excursion is a sightseeing tour of Kaliningrad followed by a visit to Fort No. 11 "Denhoff".

On this tour, you will get acquainted with the incredible history of the city of Kaliningrad, called Königsberg in the past. On April 9, 1945, Marshal Vasilevsky's troops stormed the fortress city of Königsberg, then the capital of East Prussia, and the city has been known by its Russian name Kaliningrad ever since. You will visit the most important historical places of Kaliningrad, plunge into the amazing history of the city, where history from the middle ages to the present is intricately intertwined. Such a mix of architectural styles is impossible to see in any other Russian city. Walk along the island of Immanuel Kant, the great European philosopher, where the Cathedral, the famous symbol of Kaliningrad, is located. You will see the bridges of the old city, the city gates, the fortifications and the miraculously preserved city blocks "Amalienau" and "Hufen".

The bright end of the tour will be a visit to Fort No. 11 "Denhoff", named after a famous German family, whose memory shone even brighter in connection with the life of the "red Countess" Marion Denhoff. Fort No. 11 is the best preserved fort of the defensive line built over the past centuries around the city, because it was never involved into any war: the First world war did not reach it, and in 1945 the garrison of the Fort capitulated almost without a fight 2 days before the capture of Konigsberg. Here you will find well preserved metal parts like stairs, flaps, devices for feeding shells, an armored observation deck, from which the last German garrison of this Fort watched the burning Königsberg. All the details of the Fort are still operational: the flaps move, the hood itself rotates with minimal effort, and there is even a screw chair for the observer.
