Poznań Travel Tips

You never heard of Poznań before? Well, hopefully I’m about to change that by passing on some awesome travel tips that will make you wanna go right now. 

Some Germans call it Posen but I’d like to stick to the original name Poznań! More authentic ya know…The reason why we decided to visit Poznań or Poland in general was because it’s just a few hours away and easily reachable by car. From Leipzig (central-east Germany) it’s only about a 4 hour drive. Berlin is even closer with under a 3 hour drive. So it’s perfect for a weekend getaway with your girls or beau! We really didn’t really know what to expect, when we booked our trip, we saw some pictures online but that’s about it. I couldn’t find many articles on what to do and where to stay in Poznań, so I thought I’d share one myself – let’s get right into it! ♥

Poznań Travel Tips...oh and by the way, the look I’m wearing is shopable down below!

Old Market Square & Goats

Poznań Travel Tips

At the old market square you’ll find a stunning collection of former merchant houses in a wonderfully picturesque setting – just the right spot for your next Instagram shot 😉 … If you’re keen for some sightseeing, head over to see the display of mechanical fighting goats played out daily at noon on top of the townhall. No, I’m not kidding…it’s actually a big deal, which might have something to do with the cute story behind it. Be prepared for a crowd of tourists though.

Hang out at Kontenerart

KontenerArt

Located on the side of river Warta, you’ll find this rad hipster place! Here you can hang out with the locals, experience art, take part in workshops (e.g. salsa dancing, batik dyeing) and listen to some live music. It’s fully made of shipping containers and the food they serve (which is btw heaven) is all organic and grown locally. Apparently it’s more crowded at night, you better be there early.

Think like Sherlock Holmes

Play a tourist game and act like Sherlock Holmes! The whole purpose is obviously to get to know the city better while having fun and solving mysteries. This is really unique for a small town, I’d say.

Poznań Travel Tips

Stop by Jeżyce

Suburb Jeżyce is a bit outside the city centre but totally worth a visit, especially if you’re into street art. It’s more of a student area – there are plenty of cute cafes and arty places around.

Poznań Travel Tips

Enjoy yourself at the Citadel Park or Malta Lake

The citadel is Poznańs largest city park and THE place to go to for leisure and relaxation. Malta Lake is more about being active and offers activities such as cycling, walking and skiing. Furthermore the area includes a waterpark, a zoo and a rollercoaster.

FOOD. FOOD. FOOD.

Poznań Travel Tips

Polish cuisine might not be one of the most popular but sure it is one of the best! Literally. I’m not lying. I haven’t had a meal (during the entire holiday), which was disappointing. Everything I ordered was beyond delicious and on top of all super cheap! To give you a few ideas – I would definitely recommend TOGA. It’s known as Poznań’s best restaurant, some say even in all of Poland. It combines traditional polish cuisine with the slow food principle, so please allow for some time when you visit. Other places to check out include: Karafka, Ptasie Radio, MingWok and you should also try the various food trucks!

To sum it up, Poznań is a young vibrant place with huge potential. Apart from pretty pastel house facades, they have surprisingly creative street art in various paces around the city. This combined with local streetfood, exciting nightlife & a bunch of green spaces with waterfronts make it a place that you shouldn’t miss on your travels!
