It is an impressive structure, but in order to fully appreciate it you have to know what it was. The crane was the biggest crane in the world in the 15th. century that was used to load and unload ships.

Sorry if my answer comes too late. As a visitor to Gdansk I imagine you'll be staying in the old town. The crane is located next to one of the old city gates on the riverside so it's very easy to reach on foot.

Hope you enjoy your trip.
