Swinoujscie Things to Do

  • Memorial chapel

    We found this memorial chapel along Pilsudskiego street. It's dedicated to the lifes lost at sea and to the navy. At least that's the impression I got. Please correct me if you know more about it.

  • On foot to Germany

    We walked all the way to Germany ie to Bad Ahlbeck. Follow the promenade behind the beach and continue along Zeromskiego and then the footpath through the forest. You will end up in the no-man's land and see the border markers. Have your photo taken with the markers!

  • Beaches

    There are long sandy beaches in Swinoujscie. Behind the beach forest you will find lots of attractions and eating stall for the whole family. Also you can walk to the light house that looks like a wind mill. On the promenade there are horse-drawn carriages waiting to take you for a tour.

  • Tower of former church

    The tower of the former Martin-Luther Church is an impressive sight. An entry fee applies if you want to go inside.

    Steakhouse Fenix

    by yumyum Written Oct 10, 2009

    4.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    We were drawn to this restaurant because of its outdoor seating and because it seemed to be very popular with locals and tourists alike.

    The name Steakhouse may be a bit misleading as most people order a pizza from their big selection. They also do various kotlets, hamburgers, fish nuggets and salads.

    Favorite Dish: I opted for a Hawaiian pizza (pizza Hawajska) which was very nice. I think I had the medium size for 17 Zloty. I would eat there again any time.
