See it from the river trip and save yourselves the hassle of going - on wrong side of the river from the Westerplast and miles away from the city. It looks nice but I fear it would struggle to entertain for more than 5 mins and the effort in going there would not be rewarded.

Visiting this lighthouse was one of our must's in Gdansk as it belongs to one of most important places of Polish history. Building is in very good condition and there are a lot information panels, where you can read about its history. But I don't think I will come again.

bit out of the way, not a place I would go to if pressed for time, but the view from the top is fab. Then again, you can climb the church or cathedral in old town and have fab view too, though of course very different to the sea view. Worth a visit if you have a car and plenty... More

Also from one of these windows were fired the first shots of WWII…come and enjoy... More

Me and a friend got lost whilst looking for the lighthouse and would recommend getting public transport or renting a car as we came across some scary neighbourhoods. The lighthouse was very pretty and a nice touch to the town. However, do not go out your way to see this. You are not missing out on anything major-would much prefer... More

We went there, pay 10 zl for person I believe and went to the upper part. View was nice, on the sea or on the Gdansk with many pictures about history - beginning of the 2nd WW.

It was closed when I visited in October. It is a little out of the way and can be difficult to find however it is very beautiful and atmospheric. A true landmark with a lot of history. The history of the lighthouse is printed on a board outside so it is still worth a little detour when closed.
