Wroclaw Gnome Trail

Follow Wroclaw gnome trail with a local and knowledgable guide

Wroclaw Gnome Trail , 3 hrs

Get to know each and every gnome that’s located on the streets of Wroclaw! Follow the Wroclaw gnome trail with a local and knowledgeable guide.

Browse dwarves’ profiles, check out new guys in town and travel their paths as you discover the fascinating old town of Wroclaw. Get to know 300 gnomes that are scattered throughout the city, with more appearing all the time.
Join the locals to enjoy these cheeky but charming little creatures. They are remarkably imaginative, and each represents a part of the city’s daily life or history. Admire the way they all have a profession to make a living: some of them are aeronauts or artists, others mountain climbers or bankers and musicians.

Meet your guide at the Wroclaw Cathedral and join your (very) small group on this extraordinary journey of locating gnomes. Locate some as they hide among the streets and narrow alleys, eluding the sight of passers-by.

Walk with your small group ( there will be a max of 8 people) through winding maze of cobblestoned lanes, church spires, and vibrantly colored buildings. Pass charming historical monuments and medieval architecture with a private guide.

You’ll be sure to see the best of the old town and get plenty of personal attention as you focus on locating the famous gnomes of Wroclaw.
Learn how dwarves came to Wroclaw and their daily habits and see ways to introduce your very own dwarf. Discover the streets of Wroclaw as your guide talks about “Papa Dwarf” the first dwarf to call the Wroclaw home.

Discover what “Orange Alternative” is and how the dwarves became the symbol of the anti-communist underground movement. They used to meet in the 80s to protest against the authoritarianism of Poland’s Soviet masters.

Your guide talks you through the city as he helps you locate each and every gnome registered with its location, profession and juicy details about their lives.
Admire the Town Hall and the Cathedral that overlooks the Market Square. Take in the impressive sight, with the decorative doorways and many spires and carved gargoyles looking down. Wander the narrow streets around the cathedral to see things like the Hansel & Gretel Houses, Ostrow Tumski, and Centennial Hall.

Pass stately townhomes as you walk through cobblestoned streets and squares, hearing about Wroclaw’s history and architecture dating back to the medieval ages. Settle in for the last part of your tour discovering the Jewish neighborhood, Turnski Bridge, University and the Old City Prison. 

This tour is a walking tour on the streets of Wroclaw. You’ll see the sites from outside only. If you’re interested in walking into sites than consider booking our Wroclaw walking tour, please.
