Stopover in Gdansk
Although Gdansk Airport is not a big transport hub, there is still a chance that you might have a stopover in Gdansk. There is a free Wi-Fi at the airport that you may use to plan your further trip, but except for that Gdansk Airport doesn’t provide a lot of entertainment, and prices in airport shops and bars are significantly higher than outside the airport. Is it worth leaving the airport then? What are you able to do when you have only a couple of hours? Here’s what you can do when you have a stopover in Gdansk.
Remember, that times below don’t include the security (this is sometimes time-consuming) and baggage check-in. So depending on what you need to do at the airport before your flight, you should add some time for that.
Also, remember that supermarkets and shopping malls are closed on Sundays (except the last Sunday of the month).
2 hours stopover in Gdansk
Well, unfortunately, it is not a lot of time and the only thing you can do is going to the supermarket. There is one (Lidl, open 7-21.30) 4 km from the airport, and buses 110, 210 and 122 leave the airport in that direction every 10-15 minutes (direction Wrzeszcz PKP, Orunia Goscinna or Sopot Kamienny Potok SKM). You should get off the bus at the bus stop Harfowa – the journey should last 10-15 minutes. The same buses go back to the airport just from the opposite side of the street. You need 2 one-ride tickets or 1 one-hour ticket, depending on how quick your shopping at the supermarket is.
4 hours stopover in Gdansk
4 hours is not enough to get you much further. But it is enough time for short shopping – there is a big Shopping Centre (Park Handlowy Matarnia) very close to the Lidl supermarket. You will find there Ikea (there is Ikea restaurant inside), electronic stores, clothes store, restaurants, cafes, pharmacy and many, many more. It’s open 10-21. Buses 110, 210 and 122 leave the airport in that direction every 10-15 minutes (direction Wrzeszcz PKP, Orunia Goscinna or Sopot Kamienny Potok SKM). You should get off the bus at the bus stop Harfowa, then walk a little back – you’ll see the shopping centre to your left.
6 hours stopover in Gdansk
With that time to spend, you may go to Gdansk Wrzeszcz – there are far more options there than in Matarnia Shopping Centre. Shopping Malls, restaurants, shops or even cinema – 6 time is enough to get there. The best way is to take the train from the airport (direction Gdansk Wrzeszcz or Gdansk Glowny). The journey lasts about 25 minutes.
