Nazi Terror in Gdańsk Free Tour
We are Walkative! Our goal is to promote our cities across Poland, Germany, France, Ukraine and Israel and cooperate in promoting our partners across all of Europe - no matter what your budget is! Since 2007 we have guided more than 3 million people. We provide tours in English, Spanish, Polish and German mostly.
The great merchant Free City of Gdańsk was not very free for everyone throughout the 20th century.
Between WWI and WWII Gdańsk was a city-state - desired by both Germany and Poland. It was only semi-independent and eventually became a nest of the Nazi movement. In Hitler's era, the city witnessed SS and SA troops marching to the rhythmic vibe of military music, swastikas decorating its streets, persecutions against Jews and Poles. Eventually, it saw the death of it all: Jews, Poles, Germans, and... the city itself, destroyed almost completely.
On the tour, you will learn the story of the Nazi movement in Gdańsk, the fate of the pre-war Polish and Jewish minorities. You will be surprised, shocked, and scared by the story of one of the deadliest maritime disasters in history — indeed far bigger than the Titanic. These were the shameful moments of wartime Gdańsk, the city where it all started.
ℹ️ ⚠️ ATTENTION - booking rules
Please note that our free tours are designed for individual travelers and small private groups only. Hence, we do not accept parties of 8 or more people on regular free tours and guides have the right to deny participation to such groups. If you travel in a party of 8 or more please book a private tour in advance.
If you show up at the meeting point with the bigger group our guide will ask you for the payment (10 eur/person) before the tour or cancel your reservation on the spot. To confirm your reservation please arrive 10 minutes before starting. We can not guarantee participation when you will be late.
Please note that multiply bookings (under different names) for 7 people who belong to one group will still be treated as one organized group and the guide has the right to deny participation to such parties.
This policy is implied in the best interest of our individual visitors.
Please respect our rules.
