The Crane is one of the landmarks of Gdansk and the oldest preserved harbour crane in Europe. It was constructed between 1442 and 1444 in the form of two brick towers with a wooden crane mechanism installed between them. It served as a reloading crane, a defensive construction and the city gate. The Crane hosts an exhibition on the life of the harbour city between the 16th and 18th century. After having walked up the narrow, wooden steps to the highest floor of the Crane, which is about 27 m above ground, tourists can admire the panorama of the Motława river, Ołowianka Island, Granary Island and the yachts moored in the marina.
