We enjoyed our visit here after 30 mins in the boat. Fascinating insight into the start of WW2 and the sacrifice of a few followed by the death of so many. Good interpretation around the site and worth a visit

A place for the memory, the history and respect. It's really impressive how the hardest moments, and saddest stories, can create a place as beautiful as Westerplatte. I have all the pictures of the trip on Instagram - @boneidle.mara

Nice area for walks. The most interesting place is old soldier barracks (half-way from parking to the monument) - it ios worth going inside. However, many walkways of the penisula have no signs and we were a bit lost a few times

Must see place for those who are interested in history and its authentic places. The place of essential historical importance had no museum contrary to the expectations.

If you're interested in war history, or the history of Europe, this is a spot to visit. This is where the first shots of WWII were shot. You can get there with boat, which is recommended at a sunny day (as today)

This is the outpost that 15 men and their commanding officer defended for seven days against the German army. This is where the second world war started. They were not meant to defend for this long. There is a huge monument erected in their memory...More

The Tourist Information in the main square organised a taxi, and the driver stayed with us and was really informative.

I don't know. When you arrive there with the boat, you have 2 choices. Either go down,see the area and go back to the center with the next one (I didn't) or continue the tour and return to the center directly. I don't think... More
