Visiting Gdansk Throughout the Year…

  • During March temperatures can be below zero, days are short and there’s not so much sun. Weather in April is unstable and can alternate between sun and snow
  • In May plants and trees start to green and the day becomes longer. Days are warmer and warmer, and sometimes very sunny
  • June is perfect to visit Gdansk. It’s warm, days are the longest and the probability of the rain is low. The number of tourists is still quite low at this time
  • Many Polish people choose Gdansk as a holiday destination in the peak summer months of July and August. Head for the nearby beaches and enjoy the sea at this time of year with waters being between 18-19°C
  • September is a good time to visit – it’s no longer as crowded and the weather is quite good for sightseeing. You can feel that autumn is coming but it’s not so cold just yet. It’s the last chance to visit Gdansk because October is when the real autumn starts. November is usually avoidable as it gets dark rather early and the weather can be unpredictable
  • Gdansk rarely sees snow in December, but it tends to snow in January and February. The festive period is however a brilliant time to enjoy the Christmas markets
