The fact that this is where ww2 started is enough reason to visit - We got the Perla ( old type pirate ship) for 55 zloty each - very welcoming staff and very interesting commentary the whole way to westerplatte - once there you had...More
We got the bus and got off early, just by the rock stating Westerplatte. We walked along the pathway and read the signs. The day we went it was very quiet and you really got a sense of what happened. Definitely worth a visit, all...More
Sailed up to Westerplatte on the Black Pearl. Actually quite good fun. Decent food and bar facilities on board and very informative on the way up, highlighting the history of the city's shipbuilding industry. Westerplatte itself is very well worth a visit. It is a...More
Westerplatte was worth seeing, as a starting point of WW2 we saw the remains of a bombed building. Almost everything else which once stood was gone, however there are lots of information boards with pictures and information of what had happened.
As others have said there is not much there but if you follow the information boards in numerical order you could learn a thing or two. Just the fact that WWll started here is worth the visit. It looks like they are developing the attraction...More
This is the site where World War II started. There is very little to see at the site but there are a great many information boards around which explain the site and what happened there. The memorial itself is very interesting. There is a plan...More

Straightforward. Arrive at Harbour-side in centre Gdasnk and board the water tram in front of the Hilton hotel at Targ Rybny. Arrive at around 09:30 or 12;00 for the hours journey to Westerplatte. Take note there are only around 3 return journeys a day. Alternatively, there is a regular "Pirate Ship" departing every two-hours between 10;00-16:00 that travel between Gdasnk and Westerplatte. Cost is around 4-6 Euros each way.
