We visited Gdansk whilst on a cruise of the Baltic. Next to Tallin, it remains one of the most memorable experiences of our trip. The coach dropped us about 100 yards from the old bridge. This was the beginning of a wonderful visit. As we approached the bridge, we could hear buskers playing under the arches that formed part of... More

The town wall is hard to miss - it encompasses much of the old city. Take a moment to reflect upon its history & appreciate its own beauty.

Reminants of what a walled city would have been like. Great place to stroll, shop, dine and enjoy the ambiance.

The Town Wall is broken in some parts but still visible and in good condition are the towers and parts of the wall. The narrow streets still ring to the sounds of the old merchants selling their wears.

The wall is intact for part of the town. For a small amount of money you can walk along the top. The viewpoints are more scenic than the top.

We paid the €3 to walk on to the wall, it's only about 200m of walkway, one side full of bird poo, the other side quite pleasant

There is various sections of the wall you can visit and we visited part of the wall where it cost €3 per person to visit. You have to climb a metal spiral staircase to reach the walk. You do not get a fantastic view of the town from the section we visited, but you do get to see the rooftops... More

As you are heading up or down from the Toompea Hill area to the Olde Towne (or visa versa) this cobblestone street is lined with artists and their works and handicrafts. The wall continues around the olde city with towers scattered defensively around. Several gates allow entry to and through this ancient bastion. This fantastic structure dominates the cities skyline.

We did not walk along the wall but viewed it from down below. What a great piece of history. The towers from what I think is the west side were very picturesque and there is a nice park outside the walls. It is definitely worth walking around the town for the views.
