What to expect

For more than seven centuries, the city of Königsberg was a powerful fortress city. The Royal castle stood proudly above mount Twangste and the Pregola river, instilling respect and fear in the recalcitrant Prussians. Each of the three cities that sprang up in its vicinity (Altstadt, Kneiphof and Lebenicht) had no less powerful walls and towers. Only the city gates connected the cities with their suburbs and with each other. These medieval walls and fortifications have long gone into oblivion, but to this day they excite the imagination of those who are ready to touch the reflection of bygone eras.

The tour of the torts and fortresses of Königsberg will allow you to go through the stages of creation and modernization of the fortifications of Königsberg step by step. Along the street named after Peter Bagration, who first fought against Napoleon's troops in Prussia, you will proceed to the Brandenburg gate. Like a living bridge, the Brandenburg gate connects two stages of the creation of the fortifications of Königsberg. From the height of their main facade, the founder of Königsberg castle, the king of Bohemia and Bohemia Ottokar II Przemysl, the first king of Prussia, Frederick I, and the last Grand master of the Teutonic Order, the first Duke of Prussia, Albrecht of Brandenburg, proudly look at the former Konigstrasse street. Here you will touch the most fortified part of the Val fortifications. Here rise the most ambitious elements of the Konigsberg fortification: the Kronprinz defensive barracks and the Grolman Bastion with a powerful, horseshoe-shaped Reduit.

From the monument to Alexander Nevsky you will proceed to Fort No. 3, one of the largest and the most mysterious Fort of Königsberg (external inspection of the Fort). Then you will continue to Fort No. 5 named after King Friedrich Wilhelm III, a symbol of mass heroism of the Soviet troops.
