Located just over an hour from Gdansk, the concentration camp is easily accessible by bus, which is comfortable and air conditioned. It is free to get in, however, there is a donation box available, which obviously assists with the upkeep of the premises.

As you would expect it is a somber place that you cannot help but be moved by. Staff in the visitor centre will provide you with a map so you can navigate your way round. For a small charge you can view a movie that restarts about every 30 minutes and I would suggest that you look at this first if possible. It is eerily peaceful, which is obviously in stark contrast to the atrocities that took place there.

Although there are toilets available there are no food or drink facilities on the premises.

We didn't fancy taking the bus, being put off by the hour and a half trip there, and then back again (ignoring waiting time) but prices from touring companies were well over £200 when trying to book from the uk.

But had booked an airport transfer via Shuttles Direct, and the driver (from Travel Gdansk travelgdansk.pl) offered a number of tours, including Stutthof for only £100 for the pair of us (private drive) so snapped it up, and so glad we did. Picked us up from the hotel and drove straight there (a little under an hour) offered to wait upto 3 hours, although we covered the site in 1 1/2 but driver was there waiting and did the trip back in similarly under an hour. Driver even offered to divert via Westerplatte for a visit, but we declined.

A incredibully interesting site to visit, similar to many of the others we have visited throughout europe in many ways, but still with its own unique aspects and important in its own right. Well worth the half day trip out.

Travel tips:

Bus station : Near Gdansk Glowny train station.
(Once arrive the train station, go underground by walking down the stairs from the outside, turn left passing a cake corner shop on the left, carry on walking towards the left, once you come out there will be bus paltforms there. The bus station doesn't seem obvious but you can guess by numbers of platforms.

Bus no.870 platform 2 (we caught the 11.15am. Arrived around 12.30pm.)

If you sit the oppisite side of a driver, you will see a brown sign says SZTUTOWO MUZEUM, then press a bell to stop. Driver will stop about 100 metres away from the museum, just simply walk back.

The way back to Gdansk
Once you leave the museum, just turn left and walk towards where you come from. A bus shelter is about 250 metres away.
We missed the 3.27pm. bus so we just waited for the 4.27pm. Buses only run hourly. Please see the pic of timetable I uploaded.

We took the 870 bus from Gdansk (Brama Wyszcynna). The trip takes about 1h 15minutes.

The bus will drop you off near the entrance to the museum. The entrance is free. They show a movie abt the camp but it’s in polish with no english subs.

It’s a lot to take in but definately worth the trip. We stayed for about 1,5h.

Take some food and water with you. They don’t have anything there besides a coffee vending machine.

The bus stop back to Gdansk is about 5 minute walk from the entrance by the road.

I chose this as an extra excursion from a recent Baltic cruise. It was such a sobering experience and a reminder that peace has to be everyone's priority. So enlightening to me about things that I did not know about this era. Very soul-searching time. ALL should be required to view the facts and horrors of that time.
