In the unusual atmosphere of the fort’s mysterious casemates, large-scale historical reconstruction of military operations, teambuildings, quests, and professional holidays can be carried out.
Dönhoff Fort will give you a lot of positive emotions and will not leave anyone indifferent!
Originally, the fort was called Zeligenfeld, after the name of a nearby village. Construction was carried out from 1877 to 1881. In 1894 it was renamed in honor of Lieutenant General Friedrich Reichsgraf von Dönhoff, Governor of Memel (currently Klaipeda).
During the April battles of 1945, Fort No. 11 Denhoff did not offer stubborn resistance to the advancing units of the Red Army, the garrison capitulated at about 1 pm on April 7, 1945.
Dönhoff is best preserved from 12 defensive structures of Kaliningrad – the former Königsberg fortress. The architecture of the unique complex was not affected at all. In the spring of 1945, Denhoff capitulated almost without a fight.
The fort will easily accommodate 50-70 people for the event, but a larger number is possible. It all depends on what guests would like to do.
The first mention of the Shaaken burg (fortress) in the Chronicles of the Order dates back to 1270. This is the time of the suppression of the Great Prussian uprising in Zamland (1260-1272). Since then, the castle has had a very turbulent history, so it is not very well preserved. However, on its territory you can throw a party in the style of the Middle Ages.
On the territory of the castle today, knightly swords are ringing again, programs for adults and children, interactive excursions, holidays and festivals are held. There is a museum of the medieval Inquisition, in the warm season, a marching knight’s camp and a tavern. Here you can try on medieval outfits and knightly armor, mount a war horse and chat with pets. Entering the castle gate, you will plunge into the atmosphere of a real Middle Ages!
The castle seats up to 60 people during the event.
