Trams run from the centre to the Lanterna stop, about 300m from the lighthouse.

Great views of shipping and the Westerplatte memorial across the river.

Half way up is a plaque marking the window from which Wehrmacht snipers fired the first shots of WW2.

We have taken bike tour from Sopot towards Gdansk Brzeźno and Nowy Port. At the end in Nowy Port is nice lighthouse. 10 pln entrance normal and 6 for kids. What is interesting here in direction to Westerplatte from lighthouse's window were fired first shots of World War II 1.09.1939 at 4:45 in the morning.

I could not figure out how to get there but luckily I managed to arrange a hike from Brezno along the beach. The hike is nice if the weather is OK and there are good views over the new harbour.

We did not see it from closeup but from a boat travelling to Westeplatten. It is very old and still in use.

An old light house also kept for navigation time keeping. The ball on the top of the light house goes is raised to the top exactly at 12, 2, 4 & 6 hours. Some 100 steps to the top and gives quite good views of the Gdansk bay.

We took the tram to brezno and then walked along the beach and around to the lighthouse and then opposite the old fort, about 5 miles in all. Nice walk around a real part of Gdańsk

Standing along side Motlawa, very interesting old building.
This is where the ferries enter Gdansk.
Although a little difficult to locate, It's worth a visit.

We planned a visit by car to the Lighthouse placed 10km far from Gdansk city centre. We were there in 15minutes but I didn’t see any possible transportation apart from Uber or a more expensive taxi service.
We were lucky because the place was closed but a painter who was painting the main door let us go up and was a charming guy who let us know different stories about the place.
Great view of the Nissan car who are exported to other countries and also view of the river and local cruises who take the Finnish route.
A great place to enjoy in the company of your princess and steal a kiss from her if you want to.

If you like lighthouses and history, then this is a cool spot. With GPS it's easy to find, and it's close to other historical locations. Just across the way is the monument to WW2. For 10zł a person you can go to the top. For more details though check their website. It's also not that far from the center of Gdańsk.

I'm a light-house buff and this one is important from a historical point of vue (re: start of WWII) but there isn't much to see and do and it's quite a schlep from downtown Gdandsk
