Tour description

Your tour guide will pick you up at the agreed meeting point and off you go on your shore excursion to Gdansk.

From Gdynia, where most cruise ships dock, you will travel about 45 minutes to Gdansk. Once there, take a guided walk through the Old Town of Gdansk. You will see the “Long Market” with its beautiful townhouses, which were extensively repaired after the Second World War. You will visit the Neptune Fountain and the nearby Artus Courtyard, which used to be a meeting place for the wealthy citizens of Gdansk and today is a branch of the Gdańsk History Museum. You can also admire the Gdansk Crane, the Green Gate, the High Gate, the Golden Gate and the Prison Tower during your city tour.

Of course, you can also visit St. Mary’s Church, also known as the Basilica of the Assumption: it is one of the largest brick churches in the world and can accommodate up to 25,000 people. The construction of this huge building lasted more than a hundred years, from 1379 to 1502. Once inside, take a look at the huge astronomical clock from 1464, which shows not only the exact time and date, but also the phases of the moon and the position of sun and moon in relation to the signs of the zodiac.

Then you will also visit the Oliwa Cathedral. Oliwa’s towering cathedral was originally built as a simple wooden church in the 12th century, and only in 1224 was the masonry added. Inside the cathedral there are 23 artfully designed altars for you to admire. But the absolute highlight is the extraordinary Rococo organ above the main entrance. It was built between 1755 and 1780 by the organ master Johann Wulf and was at that time the largest of its kind in Europe. The organ consists of no less than 7876 (!) wooden pipes. Since 1958, the regular annual summer festival of International Organ Music takes place in the Cathedral of Oliwa.

In the early afternoon you will drive together with your tour guide back to Gdynia for your cruise ship.

We wish you an exciting shore excursion in Gdansk!
