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 anti-communist 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.

Quoi de mieux! Szymon sait vraiment de quoi il parle, il peut répondre à n’importe quelle question sur sa région natale. Ce n’est pas qu’un texte qu’il a appris par cœur. Sa passion et son amour de la ville transparaît durant la visite! En plus de nous faire découvrir de magnifiques petits cafés et restaurants, loin des masses de touriste. Où l’on peut goûter des repas autant traditionnels que modernes tout aussi délicieux les uns que les autres. Il nous donne un tour d’horizon sur la culture et l’histoire de la ville, c’est tellement pertinent et important. Nous avons accès à des informations que seul un guide qui vit vraiment dans la ville peut savoir et que nous n’aurions jamais eu en se promenant par nous-même, c’est génial ! Je recommande grandement ce tour à qui compte passe par Poznan. Super visite et super guide! C’est une merveilleuse journée assurée!

It was not my first time in Poznań, however, the first time when I had a chance to visit it with a professional guide. And it’s amazing how much we can learn and gain when we choose to let ourselves be led by someone who knows more about the city than you can possibly think of!
Together with a group of friends we decided to go on a “Bites & Sights” tour which turned out to be a great choice. Szymon, our guide, was a nice and interesting speaker, with a vast knowledge and wit, and very proud of being born and raised in Poznań. And it’s no surprise, because the city offers so much to be proud of! Both those who seek for a place of rich historical backgroud and those who are looking for a modern, vivid vibe in cities will fit here extremely well. You can think that a 4-hour tour might be too much to fully enjoy it, but it was amazingly well-balanced and left us with a craving for some more first-hand experience in Poznań. Not to mention the food, which, just like the city, was both traditional and modern, but above all, exceptionally tastefull. You will not get back home hungry, that’s for sure!
I highly recommend joining Szymon in exploring this amazing place. That’s a guarantee of a true Urban Adventure 🙂
