Tram Sightseeing Tour

If you are into urban transportation systems, Poznan is a place you will love. This is where the leading manufacturers and exporters of Polish trams have been operating, including H. Cegielski, Modertrans or nearby Solaris. Apart from an obligatory visit to the state-protected Old Town of Poznan, to catch the sight of its Renaissance jewels encircling the Town Hall, hopping  on a tram to sightsee Maltanskie Lake, the Old Brewery or the Cathedral Island seems like a great idea – especially if you happen to board a tram that was made in Poznan itself.

Tour Overview

Take a fun retro tram tour to discover all the must-sees of Poznan, dispersed all around it. Use your time in a wise way and do not let the bad weather discourage you from intense sightseeing! No matter if you choose the hop-on and hop-off option or a fully customised tour, you will be able to decide where to stop, what attraction to approach closer or when to return. As you pass by such remarkable spots as the National Museum, the Imperial Castle, Cathedral Island, Malta Thermal Bath, Citadel Park or the Old Town of Poznan, you will hear an expert commentary on the history of what you see.

Poznan is one of the oldest Polish cities and it has been commonly accepted that this is where Poland has its roots. In order to reach it, you need to travel northwards from Wroclaw for about three hours. While much has been said of the historic attractions of the Old Town of Poznan, short-time visitors need to know that it is still possible to sightsee the ones situated on the outskirts in a highly amusing way! Riding a retro tram provides a lot of fun itself and – as Poznan is extensively covered with tram tracks – suffices to be taken to the core places of interest. There are two options you may choose: picking a regular hop-on and hop-off tour or renting a tram that may accommodate for up to 100 passengers. In both cases, you will be able to explore Poznan in an unusual, entertaining and complex way.

Hop-on and hop-off tours around Poznan are organised between the end of April and the end of September, with specific dates subject to annual changes. They operate at weekends and during summer holidays, departing at regular 40-minute intervals. This suitable timetable makes it possible for you to hop off at any stop you only want and return onboard as another tram arrives. Having a St. Martin Croissant at a charming café you spot en route or dropping in to a museum of your liking will make you discover the best spots of Poznan at your own pace and according to your preferences. Such entitlement is made possible through the purchase of a special ticket from the staff of tram no. 0. As you board one of the retro trams of the line, you will be able to choose the language version of the commentary provided, with English and German options available. And there is the definitely the greatest advantage of deciding to do your sightseeing this way: the optimised selection of sights you will pass along the way. Tram no. 0 will take you through the Old Market Square of Poznan, with the most impressive hallmarks of the city present, the classical building of Raczynski Library, the National Museum, Poznan Public Transportation Museum, the colossal Great Theater or not-less-massive Imperial Castle. For night owls, there are special night tours operating.

Traversing Poznan on a retro tram within a larger group of visitors is possible once your tram has been rented and its itinerary – customised. The tram models to choose from include the "N" model of Konstal manufacturer, made in the 1950's.  Despite the fact that you will be able to adapt the route to your specific preferences, the most famous hallmarks on Poznan will typically be included, such as: the Cathedral on the Cathedral Island (one of the major centres of Piast-dynasty-run state), the Imperial District with its Prussian Imperial Castle (1910), the Liberty Square, St. Martin Street or Malta Lake, where top-notch watersport and Olympic facilities of Poznan are located. You will spend great time onboard with the entertaining staff of the tram, playing some innocent tricks and giving you a bunch of surprises en route. Dressed in old-school uniforms, they will also introduce you to the history of what you are passing by with their humorous commentary. In case they notice you just got hungry, they will deliver a plateful of sweet St. Martin Croissants onboard to let you regain your strength as the tour goes by.
