Highlight: City tour of Wroclaw
First of all, we start at 10.00 from Dresden to Wroclaw.
Wroclaw is one of the largest, most beautiful and oldest cities in Poland, which offers all the prerequisites for a trendy destination: perfectly preserved medieval buildings and modern city districts. The city has an ancient tradition and was first mentioned around the year 900, whereby the region of Silesia - in which Wroclaw is located - was already mentioned by Tacitus in 98 AD. Our walk begins on the medieval market square (Pol.: Rynek). Many events take place here throughout the year. We visit the historic town hall, the adjoining churches and the restored town houses, which tell of a living story. During our excursion we take a look at another specialty of Wroclaw - the around 230 bronze dwarfs scattered around the city. These little residents were erected in the 1980s under the motto "Humor is the best weapon against oppression" and served as a symbol of protest against the communist state.

Overnight in Wroclaw
1st highlight: visit to the "Panorama of Racławice"
We start the 2nd day with a visit to the "Panorama of Racławice". This unique Polish work of art includes a panorama picture with a total area of 1,710 m². It depicts the victory of the Polish over the Russian army on April 4, 1794 in Racławice. The picture was a tourist highlight of the city of Lviv (today western Ukraine) for a long time. It was dismantled under strict secrecy and shipped to Wroclaw in 1946. For political reasons, it could only be shown to the public again from 1985 and is now one of the city's most famous sights.

2nd highlight: National Museum
Near the panorama is the Wroclaw National Museum, whose collection includes around 120,000 exhibits from the Middle Ages to the present day. Overall, the National Museum is considered to be one of the largest collections of historical exhibits in the country. Here there are, among other things. many paintings, drawings, prints, sculptures, handicrafts and photographs to visit. We also have the opportunity to get an introduction to the history of the country and its art history and also get to know outstanding personalities.

3rd highlight: free time
In the afternoon, you have time to explore the city and other sights on your own. We recommend the "Galeria Neonów" or the Botanical Garden. Of course, you can also enjoy the city with a leisurely stroll and visit some of the local shops.

Overnight in Wroclaw


Highlight: Poznan city tour
Poznan is the 5th largest city in Poland. It offers a mixture of interesting history and exciting culture, with remarkable architecture, lively parks and colorful cafés and restaurants. As in many historical cities, all of Poznan's main attractions are concentrated in the center. And since the history of the place spans about 10 centuries, Poznan offers its guests an extensive collection of historical monuments. During a walk we take a look at the most important of them. We start with the old market, where the beautiful Renaissance town hall is located. It was built in 1551 and is famous for its clock tower with the two moving billy goat statues. Our tour continues to the former imperial palace. This is the last and youngest royal residence in Europe and was built at the beginning of the 20th century, erected for Wilhelm II. In the summer we also have the unique opportunity to visit the Croissant Museum, where we can see how the most famous Polish biscuits are made. This is a kind of croissant and is one of the products with a protected designation of origin in the EU, so this specialty can only be baked in here according to a precise recipe.

Drive to the port city of Gdansk and overnight

Highlight: City tour through Gdansk
We stroll over the cobblestones, visit the old town with its flair of the old Hanseatic League, enjoy its historical and elegant ambience, which is often rounded off with classical sounds by street musicians. Many splendid merchants' houses await us, one of the largest brick churches north of the Alps - the St. Mary's Church- and the "right town hall". From here we have a wonderful view over the whole city. In many historical buildings we find cozy cafés and restaurants in which we can enjoy the impressions of this enchanting place and try various fish specialties of this region.

Overnight in Gdansk


Highlight: Malbork castle and drive to Mikolajki (Masuria)
The Malbork Castle, located the city of Malbork, is a medieval order castle of the Teutonic Order built in the 13th century on the river Nogat - an estuary of the Vistula. To this day it is the largest brick building in Europe and is also considered the mightiest building in brick Gothic. This castle complex was the seat of the Grand Masters of the Teutonic Order from 1309 to 1457 and is also considered to be the most impressive fortress of the 14th century in Europe. In addition to its breathtaking appearance, the Malbork Castle is also closely linked to the spread of Christianity in Eastern Europe, especially the Christianization of the Baltic people.
Badly damaged in World War II., it was then first-class restored by Polish specialists and is now home to extremely interesting historical exhibitions and an amber museum. Our personal opinion: One of the best museum complexes in Europe and a must for anyone interested in history!
After visiting Malbork Castle, we continue to Mikolajki.

Overnight in Mikolajki


Highlight: Free time in Mikolajki
We spend the 6th day of our trip in the small and cozy town of Mikolajki, which is also known as the "place of a thousand lakes". A perfect stopover on our journey, you have the time for individual relaxation. Whether you are walking through the small town and its harbor, relaxing in a cozy restaurant or café, using one of the various excursion boats or renting a boat yourself (a boat license is not necessary) is entirely up to you.

Overnight in Mikolajki


Highlight: Warsaw
We drive to the capital of Poland, where we encounter a diverse architecture that reflects the long and turbulent history of the city. During World War II., Warsaw lost almost three quarters of its entire architectural heritage. Thanks to its citizens, however, the old town was literally revived from the ashes in the decades after the war. Today, Warsaw is one of the most modern and beautiful capitals in Europe. During our city tour we get to know the history of the reconstruction of the city, visit the historical center and listen the story of the mermaid, which is one of the most important symbols of Warsaw. We visit the "new town" district - which was built at the end of the 14th century - and the processional routes of the kings. We also have a look at the Residence and the Potocki Palace. Of course, we make appropriate stops in restaurants and cafés in the capital so that you can also get to know the culinary side of Warsaw.

Overnight in Warsaw

Highlight: Lublin
Lublin is a small city with a rich history. It is located around 160 km southeast of the capital. Because of its large number of young students and its multicultural society, it is called "the city of inspiration". The starting point of our city tour is its main attraction - Lublin Castle from the 14th century. Here you will find the Lublin Museum with its archaeological and ethnographic exhibits, consisting of military equipment and an important collection of paintings. Afterwards we climb the castle tower, from which we can enjoy a wonderful view of the city. Later we stroll to the old town, where the spirit of the Middle Ages is still reflected. At the end of our tour we will also enjoy the original Polish cuisine in one of the cozy cafés or restaurants.

Ride to Krakow and overnight in Krakow

Highlight: Krakow
Krakow is the 2nd largest city in the country and was the capital of the Kingdom of Poland until 1596. The oldest Polish university is located here and the second oldest in Central Europe after the Charles University in Prague. Today, Krakow is - in perpetual competition with Warsaw - the "secret capital of Poland" and the "centuries-old center of the Polish state". In addition, its old town is one of the most beautiful in Europe and was declared the first UNESCO World Heritage Site. The heart of this is the "Rynek Główny" market from the 13th century, which is one of the largest in the world and embodies a mix of culture, history and full life. You can easily spend a whole day here and visit the Gothic St. Mary's Church and its masterful high altar by Veit Stoss, the town hall tower and the cloth halls from the 14th century. Despite the effects of the Second World War, the centuries-old, historical heritage of the city remained almost undamaged and delighted with various architectural treasures. One of these sights is the castle complex of the former residence of the Polish kings. It dates back to the centuries between 1040 and 1795 and is located on the hill "Wawel". Here, from a height of 228 m, the view opens up over the city center and the surroundings of the city.

After our guided excursion, you can continue to explore the city on your own. Our tip: visit at least one of the numerous galleries and museums. Or just let the spirit of the city sink in.
