This defensive brick tower was built at the end of 14th century. The roof and upper parts were damaged during WWII and rebuilt following the look of the tower from 1556. It's the highest defensive tower in Gdansk (36 m = 12 store building), closed for visitors now. Some locals were sitting on wooden boxes around the base of the tower and they sold fresh flowers, forest mushrooms and other goods.


Address: Panska, 80-850 Gdansk
Directions: At northern part of the Main Town (15 min. walk from the Main Railway Station - Gdansk Glowny), at northern end of Panska Street, where Podmlynska Street starts.
