Welcome to Wielkopolska


Though Poznań is a city focused on commerce, it exudes a lively character and has plenty of sights. Beyond, the Wielkopolska countryside offers a selection of charming towns and rural scenery. Among the region’s attractions are castles, steam trains, palaces, churches, nature reserves and a memorable Iron Age settlement. And at the heart of it all is the great cathedral of Gniezno, the birthplace of Catholic Poland.

It’s an impressive menu, but Wielkopolska is also a great place to strike out on your own. Wherever you end up, you’ll be sure to find something of historic interest; it’s that kind of place.

Poznan - Bites and Sights Walking Cultural Food and Drink Tour

Your introduction to Poznań begins in the chocolate-box Old Market Square, with its 16th-century town hall and colourful merchant townhouses. We’ll talk a little about the origins of the city as we stroll over to take a closer look at the Bamberg Woman Statue, where we’ll explain more about the dialect spoken in the region, giving you a quick and handy language course to help you during your stay. Next, we’ll discover the charming little streets that belong to the Old Town and visit the Parish Church to find out why its designers were forced to cheat people. Our first foodie stop will be at a café situated in the most beautiful courtyard in the Old Town. We’ll take our time, drinking a tea or coffee and have a taste of the iconic Saint Martin Croissant. The unmissable Billy Goats show is up next, where crowds come to gather at noon each day to see the animals butt heads as the Town Hall clock strikes 12. After soaking up the delights of the Old Town, we’ll head down Półwiejska Street to marvel at another splendid site, Stary Browar. This building, which was once a huge brewery, became a ruin and is now reborn as a shopping mall, modern art gallery, hotel and offices complex. Then we’ll take a short stroll over to the Imperial District and introduce you to Mickiewicz Square. Home to a striking Imperial Castle and the 1956 Memorial which commemorates the first anticommunist uprisings in Poland. We’ll also spot the University and the neoclassical Opera House. After all that sightseeing, you’ll have worked up a healthy appetite, so next up, we’re going to take you for an authentic lunch in our favourite hipster district, at a restaurant that’s currently serving up some of the best modern Polish cuisine in the city. As we eat, we’ll talk more about the city and why it’s so unique, getting to know each other over a drink and a delicious meal. Your tour ends here, 200 metres from the nearest tram stop and approximately 20 minutes' walk from the Old Market Square. Before you go, don’t forget to ask your guide for more tips on what else to see, do and eat during your stay in Poznań.

Small-Group Evening Food and Drink Experience of Poznan

Your introduction to nightlife in Poznań begins in the Śródka district, with a stunning view of its famous 3D mural. Only a few years ago this area was a no-go zone, isolated from the rest of the town. Nowadays, it’s one of the most popular places to eat and drink in the city.  So we will do as the local’s do and stop in this foodie hub at a local restaurant to try a seasonal soup appetizer. This is not just any restaurant, however; this one has serious social responsibility credentials as it supports homeless local people and recovering addicts as they work to rebuild their lives. After whetting our appetites with a liquid starter and giving something back to the local community, it’s time to explore more of the city as we take a stroll past the Jordan Bridge to admire glorious views of the skyline. Then, we’ll continue on through Cathedral Island to the nearest tram stop. As we travel, your guide will talk a little about the history of the city. Our next stop, the art nouveau Jeżyce district, is home to alluring architecture and local hipsters. Here we’ll fill our stomachs at a small, local restaurant with some beer-friendly food and a drink (of your choice but craft beer is highly recommended). A walk around the attractive streets of Jeżyce will take us to our next destination, a craft beer joint offering a whole host of beers for your drinking pleasure. Other drinks are available. Then we’re off to admire the delights of the Old Town at dusk, via public transport, and get to grips with its flourishing craft beer culture. We’ll pass by the Old Market Square and soak up its charming evening ambience, learning a little of its storied past as we proceed to our final beer tasting of the night, at a popular spot for local beer lovers and tourists alike. Your tour ends here but before you go, don’t forget to ask your local guide for more tips on what else to see and do during your stay in Poznań.
