We went there after a recommendation of the local guide Marta who took us on a free walking tour. The place is different in style than most of the other sites in Gdansk. It pays to visit but it is not a must

When entering we were led up to the top floor where an exibition about garden design was on display and it was only in Polish. It has nothing to do with the Uphagen House. The actual Uphagen house is not so interesting. It's not spectacular...More

The food and service were lovely. We visited with a total of 6 people - the food was cooked and presented with excellence and precision. The service was faultless. Well worth a try.

This historic 18th century house-museum on Gdansk's main street is a remarkably restored treasure and gave us a glimpse of the elegant lifestyle of the wealthy merchants. The stunning murals and architectural details are complimented by period furnishings and a pleasant docent who spoke excellent...More
