Interesting building externally but you have to use your imagination to see it as a working mill. A photo stop but not a place to linger.

This is an excellent building, situated just outside the Old Town, close to the Old Town Hall and most probably on your way if you arrive to the city center by tram or train - definitely not a spot to be missed during your trip.

Great building. Cute river running through. I like the fountains next to the mill building. Cute place for photo day and night. Watch out for the little sculpture on the floor

Interesting to see, but having learnt that 90% of Gdansk was flattened by the Red Army in 1945, I wonder if this is also rebuilt after the war. Anyway, it is nicely done and it adds atmospher to the quai.

Can only look from the outside. Not too special but worth a look if in the area. On the outskirts of the city so do on the way to somewhere else and only for quick photo and look.
