Getting to Gdansk
There are two cheap airlines that operate flights to Gdansk:
- Wizzair (many connections from the UK, Germany, and Benelux)
- Ryanair (many connections from UK and Ireland).
They also run flights to Gdansk from Italy, France, Spain, Portugal, and Scandinavia.
Regular airlines (LOT, Lufthansa, SAS, and Air Berlin) offer flights to/from Gdansk via Warsaw, Frankfurt, Munich, Copenhagen, and Berlin.
Gdansk is very well connected to Warsaw (3h by train). There are also daily trains from Cracow, Wroclaw, Berlin, and Vienna. Check http://intercity.pl/en/ for timetables and prices.
Poland has a good network of long distance buses, with the advantage of reasonable travel times and very cheap tickets (typically between 5 and 10 EUR). A meta-planner is available at https://en.e-podroznik.pl/. The most popular coach operator is probably PolskiBus.
Getting from the airport
There are two sensible options of getting from the airport to the venue: either take the metropolitan train (so called SKM or PKM), or a taxi.
- SKM train: take line 2 from the airport to station Gdansk-Strzyża (direction Gdansk Wrzeszcz or Gdansk Glowny), and then either walk for 10-15 mins, or take a tram no. 11 towards Oliwa. The train ride takes about 25 min and costs 3,50 zl (approx. 0,80 EUR).
- Taxi: pick up one in front of the terminal. The ride should take 15-25 mins. depending on the traffic, and cost no more than 40 zl (approx. 10 EUR).
