The attempts of the surveyor K. to get into the castle are as unsuccessful as his attempt to settle into the local village. The harder K. tries, the farther he moves from his goals. The impenetrable and arbitrary castle administration hinders a clarification of his social and existential situation. K. remains what he was on the day of his arrival: a stranger who is barely tolerated.
