Sopot Pier, Sopot

4.0
#1 of 23 in Things to do in Sopot
One of the longest wooden piers in Europe at 512 m (1,679 ft), Sopot Pier stretches from the middle of Sopot Beach. It serves as both a pleasure pier and mooring for cruise ships and water taxis. Walk to the end, where the vapors from the high level of iodine in the water are said to benefit your health. A stroll up and down the pier gives views of the coastline and a respite from city sightseeing. Although events are held on and around the pier, it is free of shops and restaurants so it rarely gets crowded (except when the nearby bay hosts sailing and windsurfing competitions).

    Enough people, a new marina. Beautiful views, fresh air. It's a must in Sopot. Gives there sail boats heading for Hel and Gdańsk. We also offer short cruises on a catamaran or a pirate ship.

    This is the longest pier in Europe and it is really worth visiting. Single entry family ticket is about 4.5 Eur (2+2).  more »

    The pier is by far one of the most important attractions of Sopot. You cannot miss it being in tri-city. And people that are to avoid paying an entrance fee, I recommend choosing the off-season. If there is no other option and is a must-see Pier in the summer, it's worth it to buy tickets online to avoid getting stuck in queues.

  • Definitely a place one should visit while staying nearby. Nevertheless, arm yourself against the hugely dense crowd of tourists flowing in and out all the time. Anyone who visited it some 40+ years ago might be profoundly disappointed. Yet, the pier stays, the seagulls still fly and the sea is deep. Enjoy!
  • i loved that you can see both Gdynia and Gdansk from it. Great place for a walk in a sunny day. Bit overpriced but fair enough, they need to get money for renovations from somewhere. Perfect place for a photo shoot too!
  • This is like "must-do" if you visit Sopot. Wooden Molo pier itself is nice but everything else there is a bit over priced. I recommend everyone to go there by the time of sunset which is romantic.
  • They charge money to go on it! Really? Nice view but why charge? You do get to see some strange pigeons.
  • It's so large even when it's busy there's plenty of room to walk about

Where to stay in Sopot

Sopot provides a good alternative to staying in Gdansk and offers accommodations for every traveler's taste and budget. The luxurious hotels concentrated near the sea provide spacious rooms and quick access to sandy beaches. Comfort comes at a steep price in this part of town, so if your visit involves a tight budget, consider staying at a guesthouse in a residential neighborhood just a short ride from the popular seafront. For more space and privacy, check out Sopot's self-catering apartments.
