How to Have Tons of Fun in 24 Hours in Poznan

How to Have Tons of Fun in 24 Hours in Poznan, Poznan, Poland (B)

Poznan is a compact university town in the north of Poland roughly equidistant between Berlin and Warsaw. It has a pretty Old Town which boasts a delightful Christmas market and is an ideal day trip from either city. It also has great nightlife so ideally you want to book an overnight hotel to sample the city’s evening entertainment too. Discover our top tips for a night out in the old town here.

We visited in December so many of the guided tours were not running. Temperatures were just above freezing, but a bitter wind rattled through the old town so wrap up if you visit in winter. It can get very chilly. To check the weather for other times of year, visit Weatherspark.

If you travel overland from Berlin or Warsaw, your best option is to take the bus. It costs less than €20 and takes 3 – 4 hours.

The bus and train stations are a couple of miles from the Old Town on the outskirts of the city. From the bus station take bus 151 from Poznan Glowny to Solna or Tram 8 from Most Dworcowy to Pl Wielkopolski. You will be in town in less than 15 minutes and tickets cost around £1. To check other options, visit Rome2Rio and put in your start and end points. This fabulous resource will then show you all your options for getting around. It has a simple interface and bright, funky design. You can also find details of the location transport options on the Poznan transport website. ......
