Following the Gdansk view points

Have you ever thought what Gdansk looks like from the height of over 100 metres? Or perhaps you like climbing and you want to see the city from somewhat different perspective? For active people, it will be an interesting idea to sightsee the city by climbing the highest peaks of which there are quite a few in Gdansk!

The Pachołek Hill - also called the Pachołek Mountain, and from the end of the 18th century until 1945 - Karlsberg Hill is a hill (100.8 m above sea level) in the Gdansk district of Oliwa. It is located in the forest complex in Oliwa on the edge of the Tricity Landscape Park and on the tourist route of Kartuzy.
From a tower of about 15 metres high there is a panoramic view of the entire neighbourhood and the Bay of Gdansk. Without much problem you may also study the topography of Oliwa. As a curiosity - the place was probably a place of cult for the pagan Pomeranians while today it is one of the most popular vantage points in Tricity.
