Built in the fourteenth century in the Gothic style. The castle was the seat of the administrator of the land estates of the Warmia chapter.

The most famous administrator performing these duties in 1516-1521 was Nicolaus Copernicus. To this day, on the wall of the cloister, there remained a unique souvenir after his stay - a hand-made experimental astronomical board, and in the Library's collection there is a medical incunable that he used. The astronomical plaque at the Olsztyn castle is the only astronomical instrument ever made and used by Nicolaus Copernicus.
