The crane is brilliant as it combines the story of merchants houses and the mechanisms of a port with being able to see the reconstructed human powered crane wheels.

Famous 14th century grain elevator, now restored after extensive WWII damage. Dates from 14th century, when Gdansk was the largest city in the Hanseatic League of trading partners. You'll have to climb lots of stairs (I managed on crutches) to see the 4 floors of...More

As far as I know, this is just something to look at from the street. It's the base bit of a 14th century (I think) crane. Set on the Motlawa river a stone's throw from the old town and very near the Hanza Hotel.

Really interesting bit of architecture. Been standing here for centuries, yet can still surprise with its ingenuity.

A small but interesting museum in the centre of Gdansk. This is a very important part of the history of Gdansk which has been restored after mostly being destroyed durirng WW2. If you are interested in the great history of Gdansk then visit here.

Stunning architectural structure whose foundation dates back to 1350 by the Teutonic knights. It was burned in 1945 and until that date this mill never ceased to grind, thanks to its 18 hydraulic wheels, almost 200 tons of cereals daily. Rebuilt in 1962, this impressive...More

This is undoubtedly, the most famous landmark in Gdansk. It has an imposing, almost sinister character. Built in the 14th century, this was capable of lifting weights of 4 tonnes up to a height of 11 metres. Remarkable, given that it was powered by men...More

Our guide took us here and explained how this was used, I have never seen anything like this before and found it fascinating, well worth a visit if you’re lucky enough to be in Gdansk.

Didn't go inside, but, equally lovely to see from the outside! The workings are a wonder of their era.

Sorry if my answer comes too late. As a visitor to Gdansk I imagine you'll be staying in the old town. The crane is located next to one of the old city gates on the riverside so it's very easy to reach on foot. You may be... More

Turn your back to the Crane and take a selfie with the Crane. It is absolutely gorgeous with night lights.
