Day Two: The Wolf's Lair

Join us on a day tour to the beautiful Polish region of Mazury where we will visit important sites related to WWII. After the long journey from Gdansk, we will visit the Wolf’s Lair (Wolfsschanze), Hitler’s eastern most military HQ during WWII. The Wolf’s Lair was constructed in time for Hitler to take command of Operation Barbarossa – the German invasion of Russia in 1941. Hitler first arrived at the Wolf’s Lair on 23 June 1941 and spent a total of 800 days there throughout the war, leaving for the final time on 20 November 1944.

The Wolf’s Lair is the site of the most notable assassination attempt on Hitler’s life as portrayed in the movie Valkyrie based on the plot by Colonel Claus von Stauffenberg and his co-conspirators to kill Hitler on 20 July 1944 that came to be known as the “20 July Plot”. After our visit to the Wolf’s Lair, we travel a short distance to the Mamerki bunkers where lower-level German military personnel and visitors stayed when going to the Wolf’s Lair. Our final stop is at the site of one of the giant locks for the canal the German’s were building from Mazury to the Baltic Sea, but for what purpose?

Come along and have a look for yourself and see if you think U-Boats could have made the journey.

Day Three: Malbork Castle

Join us for a tour of Malbork Castle, a UNESCO World Heritage listed site as well as the largest brick castle, and the largest castle by land area, on Earth. Originally built by the Teutonic Knights to house their Grand Master when he moved from Venice, the castle has been occupied by Poland for longer than it was ever occupied by the Teutonic Knights. Thoroughly destroyed in fighting between the Germans and Russians towards the end of WWII, Malbork Castle has been painstakingly rebuilt and is now open for visitors. Enjoy learning about both the ancient and more modern history of this mighty castle. On our return to Gdansk, we stop by the Westerplatte Peninsular and Memorial where the first shots of WWII were fired on 1 September 1939 by the German Battleship Schleswig-Holstein at the Polish Garrison stationed on the peninsular.
