Getting around in Gdańsk

From airport to city

The airport has a train connection with Gdańsk Wrzeszcz railway station, within the walking distance from the conference venue (Gdańsk University of Technology) and several hotels in Wrzeszcz district. If your hotel is near the Old Town, you have to take another train from Gdańsk Wrzeszcz in the direction Gdańsk Śródmieście and get off at Gdańsk Główny (Main Railway station) or Gdańsk Śródmieście. Train tickets can be bought in the ticket machines on the platforms.

Due to construction works along the airport train line, at Gdańsk Wrzeszcz station and Gdańsk Główny station, some perturbations in travel can occur and the timetable changes often. Thus, taxi might be the easiest option to get to your hotel from the airport.

Conference venue

Gdańsk University of Technology can be easily reached by tram (stops Opera Bałtycka or Politechnika). If you stay near the Old Town, you can take the following lines from either Brama Wyżynna or Dworzec Główny tram stops:

2 – direction Oliwa / Strzyża PKM, get off at Opera Bałtycka

3 – direction Brzeźno Dom Zdrojowy / Nowy Port Zajezdnia, get off at Opera Bałtycka

6 – direction Jelitkowo, get off at Politechnika

9 – direction Strzyża PKM, get off at Politechnika

From Dworzec Główny, you can also take line 12 direction Oliwa and get off at Politechnika.

Tram tickets can be bought in ticket machines located at many stops, including Brama Wyżynna, Dworzec Główny, Opera Bałtycka and Politechnika. It is not possible to buy tickets on the tram. A single ticket is 4.80 PLN (about 1.05 EUR).

You can also take a taxi. In this case remember to give the name “Politechnika” (Polish for University of Technology) and the address (Narutowicza street) to the driver to avoid confusion with other universities existing in Gdańsk (University of Gdańsk and Medical University of Gdańsk).

If you live in Tri-city area and plan to come by car, you can use the parking for guests of Gdańsk University of Technology, in Fiszera street. Please give the conference name “CMWR” to the caretakers of the parking.
