This is one of the city’s better-known forts due to it being situated literally right in the middle of the New Zoo. Unfortunately, this means that if you want to visit, you need to first purchase a ticket for the zoo, and then pay separately for a guided tour of the fort. The tours take place on Sundays, May to September only, at 14:00, 15:00, and 16:00 (at least those were the hours last year - we were unable to verify them for the coming season). These guided tours are likely to be in Polish only, but private, English-language tours can be set up by phone or e-mail. If you manage to get in, you’ll find that snooping around the eerie hallways, rooms and stairways hidden throughout gives a real sense of what it must have been like to be stationed in such a place.
Price/Additional InfoAdmission 10/8zł, not counting the zoo ticket.
