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

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...More

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

We visited as part of a circular cycling route. Glad we came across it but would have been disappointed if had made a special trip. Its not expensive (by UK standards) but time you've paid the entrance for a family of 5 its not good...More

Our Polish guide made this apparently unprepossessing lighthouse a worthwhile visit. Apparently the first shots of WW2 were fired from this building and there is a memorial to those who defended the peninsular on the opposite bank. The small Polish garrison on Westerplatte held off...More

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...More

No, This lighthouse is quite far off in a secluded place. Usually bus tours take you to the place. There is a very small shop within the light house selling some souvenirs.
