Private Gdansk City Tour – A walk through the Old Town of Gdansk

Last updated in February 2024.

Private Gdansk City Tour is the most popular shore excursion to Gdansk. Our private walking tour of Gdansk takes place in the Old Town of Gdansk – the birth place of many famous people such as the inventor of the mercury glass thermometer Gabriel Fahrenheit and the philosopher Arthur Schopenhauer. During our walk we will see the most famous landmarks of this 1000 year-old city. The majority of the sights on our tour lie on The Royal Way of Gdansk (also called The Royal Route of Gdansk). The name comes from the fact that the Polish kings who visited Gdansk followed it along with their entourage.

We will start our Gdansk highlights tour with The Upland Gate – the 16th century entrance to the Old Town of Gdansk. On our way we will see The Torture House and The Prison Tower – previously the Museum of Amber in Gdansk. Next we will enter Long Street and the Long Market and admire the most magnificent sights like: Artus Court a medieval meeting place for rich merchants, a symbol of Gdansk – The Neptune Fountain, The Golden House and The Green Gate. Here we will drop into one of the amber workshops to see a brief display of amber polishing also called „the gold of the Baltic Sea”. We will also learn how to recognise fake amber. Here the official Royal Route in Gdansk ends but we will walk further to see the banks of the Motlawa River and the medieval Crane. We will walk on the most picturesque street in Gdansk – Mariacka Street which will lead us to the biggest gothic brick church in the world St. Mary’s church. Here we will see many interesting pieces of historical art. We will finish our Gdansk highlights tour at the richly decorated Great Armoury.
