1With a few weeks time you could easily venture out of Poznań and see the highlights of Poland, like e.g. Kraków and the mountains to the south, or Gdańsk and surroundings: the seaside and medieval castles of the teutonic knights.
Not moving far away from Poznań (say up to 3 hours by train) the main destinations are Wrocław, Toruń, Warsaw, Berlin. All of these are worth a few days stay, only Toruń is compact enough to be easily visited as a day trip.
Closer to Poznań there're easy day trips to Gniezno, the first capital of Poland, or the castle in Kórnik. The Greater Poland National Park (Wielkopolski Park Narodowy) is at the southern outskirts Poznań with lakes in a nice hilly area, good for bike trips. The small lake district around Sieraków north west from Poznań is also very nice to do some relaxed hiking/biking (though both areas probably can't compete with New Zealand in terms of natural beauty :) )
Do you plan to stay all the length of your visit in Poznań, or do you consider travelling around the country/region for a few days? How much time do you have for your trip?

4There are lots of cheap hostels in Poznan, but you have to book places right now, because in June there will be Euro 2012, so not many left :)

5It's a pity you won't be there in June, there is this amazing Kupala night I heard a lot about. Anyway, I'm sure you'll have a lot of fun in Poznan, it's a beautiful city. Don't forget to try rogale marcinskie (special kind of croissants, delicious!). :)
