Great views

We climbed the tower to get an excellent view of the whole city of Gdansk for 5zl. Museum there too but we didn't have time to see it this time. Climb is hard but worth it.

Our time in the town hall was well-spent. (The employee we purchased our entry from suggested we pay for only one audio tour and share it. I would advise against this. Spring for a few more zloty and get one per person OR forego the audio tour entirely -- I felt I got plenty out of the experience without using... More

Worth a look, particularly on a Tuesday morning when free (closed on Mondays). Right in the centre town so easy to get to. Only need an hour or two in here for the oppulent rooms & ceilings.

You climb about 70 or so steps up the top of the town hall, but it is more than worth it for the stunning views of the city. It's really cheap too. I'd definitely recommend.

Worth a visit normally only £2 but free on Monday an extra £1 if you want to go up the tower, worth it for the views of the old town. Some English explanations.

The town hall is a history musuem of the town. It gives you good information how the town comes to be. It has a few extremely nicely decorated rooms that are astonishing. It is quite a climb to the top of the tower, but it is definitely worth the extra coins & effort. The view is magnificent, 360 view of... More

This is the only place in our 6day trip which was a waste of time. Some lovely artefacts and old rooms but followed the whole wY round by the bouncer style staff on each level!

Start your tour by listening the lovely tune from the bell tower. The town hall is one of the landmarks of the city. It is almost impossible to loose sight of the beautiful bell tower in the middle of the main pedestrian street. Inside there is plenty to see. Starting from the ceremonial rooms decorated with paintings and wood carvings... More

The old Town Hall is worth a visit, even if you are not a big fan of museums. Information is in german and English, as well as in polish.
