Walkative was established in 2007 by a group of young enthusiasts who also happened to be licensed tour guides. Today, we operate in 20 cities in countries across all of Europe and beyond, including France, Germany, Poland, Italy, Ukraine and Israel. We have already guided more than 3 million tourists, with more than 350 000 in 2023 only! Despite this growth, we stay true to our values: be local and present the history of our cities in a professional, yet entertaining way, accessible for everybody, regardless their budget. We provide service not only in big, well established places like Berlin, Paris or Krakow, but also smaller, less known, yet no less fascinating locations, like Nice, Toruń or Lublin. We cooperate with highly trained, professional guides providing both engaging tip-based and regular fixed-price tours. And most importantly - we know our cities by heart! Join us and stay Walkative!

Tour description

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.

I recommend 100% this Nazi Terror in Gdańsk Tour. Our guide, Filip (the first), provided a lot of interesting information in a delightful way. His telling immersed us in the history of Gdańsk, walking chronologically through the different places and scenes where everything happened not so many years ago.
