The Royal Route
In the Middle Ages, Gdańsk, formerly known as Danzig, was one of the most important Hanseatic cities with close cultural ties with the Low Countries. The old Royal Route will lead you along the most beautiful attractions in the historic heart of the city. Take a stroll from the Golden Gate through Long Street and admire the ornate facade of the picturesque merchant mansions. At the end you will reach the lively Long Market, dominated by the town hall and its impressive tower. Sip a coffee on a patio while you admire the fierce Neptune fountain in the centre of the square. Gdańsk is the ideal destination for a city trip and the perfect starting point for a longer holiday in Poland. Expect to be surprised: book a flight to Gdańsk now!
By water tram
Get into the maritime spirit with a water tram ride to the Green Gate on the north side of the city. Along the way you will see the distinct Crane Gate: this wooden colossus from 1444 serves both as a lifting crane and defence mechanism. Disembark at Nowy Port and breathe in the fresh salty sea air as you walk along the wharf. A climb to the top of the lighthouse will reward you with breathtaking views of the beach and the Baltic Sea. At night, the famous nightlife spot Klub Morza Zejman on the river island of Wyspa Spichrzów is a fun destination for a drink. Before you know it you will be swept up in a tall tale of an old sea dog.
