Wonderful building right in the city centre. Surprisingly beatiful above all the tower. Most advised corner for a sight is from down and from the side,

We entered and where not charged. Not sure why not as it is worth paying. You walk up a few steps enter the first room and that is ok then you enter the main hall - WOW - stunning. The ceilng is a master piece. So beautiful I could have stayed for hours. Please do not miss this place.

If you're interested in the Gdańsk history - go inside, there is a museum inside covering vast majority of the last few hundreds years of Gdańsk history.

You have to pay attention to the unique wooden staircase and other features. You can visit the temporary exhibitions, which can be extremely interesting. On the top floor permanent exhibition devoted to Gdansk from the period between... More

the small fee required to climb the tower is totally worth it. The interiors are also worth a visit but it is the view from the top the main reason to visit in my humble opinion.

Centrally located in the old town, the climb to the top provides an excellent view of Gdansk. The interior contains rooms with decorated ceilings and lush furnishings. Audio tours are available. Check for hours and days open.
