Ołowianka Footbridge

  ul. Wartka     19 Dec 2023
Another modern engineering marvel over the Motława, this much-needed footbridge connecting the Old Town near Targ Rybny to Ołowianka Island opened in June 2017. Prior to that it was a real pain to get across the river during the roughly 10 months of the year when it wasn't frozen solid. Similar to the Św. Ducha bridge, this pedestrian bridge is actually a drawbridge that raises straight up in the air from the Ołowianka side to let boats through roughly every 30mins, for 30mins, so you may have to wait to cross. On the other side you'll find the 'Gdańsk' marque sign that serves as social media bait, and the huge 'Amber Eye' Ferris wheel.

Operating Hours

Operating from 07:00-18:00, Mon - Fri, and 07:00-18:00 on Saturdays, the footbridge lowers once an hour, allowing for 30 mins of walking before being raised and allowing water-bound vessels to pass through. At times outside of the afore-mentioned operating hours, the footbridge will remain lowered for pedestrian use and will only be raised at the request of water-bound vessels.
