Lodz: Full Day Tour from Warsaw by Private Car

5. Lodz: Full Day Tour from Warsaw by Private Car

A private driver will pick you up from the address provided in Warsaw by Mercedes car, comfortable for up to six passengers and will take you to Łodź for a full-day tour. During this 3-hour city tour, the local English speaking guide will introduce you to the atmosphere of this beautiful industrial city. It is often compared to Manchester – the largest 19th-century textile industry centre in the world. Lodz is therefore often called the “Polish Manchester”. One of the first steam engines in the Kingdom of Poland was run at Ludwik Geyer’s White Factory in 1839 and it was here that the first factory chimney appeared on the Lodz skyline. Księży Młyn (‘Priest’s Mill’) is a well-preserved, complete industrial quarter with a factory, workers’ dwellings, hospital, school, fire station, owner’s villa, stalls and garden. In recent years the factory has been redeveloped into exclusive apartments. The villa holds a museum presenting the luxurious 19th-century interiors. Not far away, there’s the Scheibler Palace with the Cinematography Museum.  This engaging 5-kilometer catwalk is Łódź's primary playground and personifies everything this city is attempting to achieve in the coming years. It's with good reason that visitors will spend a significant amount of time on this street. Piotrkowska not only keeps going but it has even more alternative culture, terrific gastronomy and more post-industrial complexes for you to explore! OFF Piotrkowska is an altogether different, unique and alternative proposition. Situated just off ul. Piotrkowska (hence the name) between numbers 138-140, the complex has taken over the beautiful old cotton mill buildings of the former Ramisch factory. Originally from Czechoslovakia, the Ramisch family relocated to Łódź in the 1830s and in 1850 purchased the first plot of land on which construction of the factory began; adjoining plots were purchased as the empire expanded. By 1909 the factory, in the very heart of the city, was firing on all cylinders. Production continued right up until 1990, after which the buildings and their rich heritage were all but forgotten about and the area fell into a sad and dilapidated state. Manufaktura today is the result of Poland’s largest renovation project since the reconstruction of Warsaw’s Old Town in the 1950s. The history of the site is one of the fortunes made and lost, of war, nationalisation and destitution. What you see before you was once a series of factories – all producing various textiles – that were constructed in the latter part of the 19th century. After sightseeing and lunch, the driver will take you back to Warsaw and drop you off at your chosen location.

What people are saying about Łódź

Excellent because very complex open-minded sightseeing.

Ewa is a very well-prepared guide and did not get angry at all when I came up with a lot of questions. I also really enjoyed the fact that she proposed me several options of important points to see and let me chose what I was more interested in. I am more culture, religion and history oriented... She also was very kind to help me choose the best souvenirs for some friends I have at home depending on their tastes and knew what shop to recommend. Her English is very good and her personality is very pleasant, which makes the tour with her one of the nicest memories one could have. I highly recommend her for presentations of Lodz and consider her one of the most professional guides I met, yet also having an openness that makes her a presence everyone can enjoy. She is a good asset for your company, so I congratulate you for hiring her and I hope Lodz will always have many tourists as there are so many charming points to see!

Joanna kindly picked us up at our hotel and made several suggestions for our walking tour. We opted for the Scheibler/autumn theme and let ourselves be carried away to the heyday of cotton spinning and processing. From the very beginning it was an exciting walk through the history of Lodz, the attractively renovated spinning mill halls and the Autumn Villa with a beautiful park. The villa can be visited free of charge on Fridays and is absolutely worth seeing. Joanna's explanations give a complete picture of Lodz and the heyday of its development.

It was wonderful to walk through Lódz and get to know the history of the city. We gathered a lot of impressions and learned a lot from our companion Ewa. thank you for the beautiful day
