    My guide Elwira was very knowledgeable. She took time to explain the museum and its parts. I really enjoyed my experience. The only comment that I had was the cost of it was way to much at over 500zł. It cost as much as my whole weekend in Gdańsk . I thought I was paying 1/2 of that.

  • Gdansk: Private Wolf's Lair Tour

    5. Gdansk: Private Wolf's Lair Tour

    Your private tour for just you and your group begins as you are picked up from any location in Gdansk, Sopot, or Gdynia. Following 3 hours of driving, you'll arrive to Wolf's Lair. The fortress is composed of 80 buildings which were built between 1940-1942, with 50 of them being bunkers. The headquarters had its own electric power generator, railway station, and an air-strip, and quarters for top Nazi officials as well as a casino and cinema were located in the central part of the compound. The whole area was camouflaged, protected by barbed wire and mine fields. Transportation is conducted by deluxe, spacious, and air-conditioned vehicles which are driven by experienced chauffeurs. Throughout your journey to the site and back you will be free to admire the beauty of the Polish countryside.

    It was a good tour led by informative guides. We had one guide who pointed out sites along the three-hour drive from Gdansk and a separate guide who actually showed us around the Wolf's Lair itself. Both were great and seemed happy to answer any questions. The Wolf's Lair itself was interesting. I hadn't realized ahead of time that the Germans destroyed most of the bunkers so they couldn't be used by the Soviets; that means it's a bit more of a ruins tour than a bunker tour, which is interesting in its own way. And of course the historical significance of the site itself is powerful. There are some well-done exhibits as well, including on the Stauffenberg assassination attempt. Worth a visit for the history buffs!
