  • An emblem for the city, the Gdańsk Crane on Motlawa’s Long Embankment dates back to the 14th century. This piece of machinery harks back to the time when Gdańsk was in the Hanseatic League, and could load or unload four tons of cargo, lifting it to a height of 11 metres. The power came from humans, as groups of men would walk inside two large wooden wheels as if they were hamsters. The crane doubled as a waterside city gate and was in use up to the 1800s. Now maintained by the National Maritime Museum, you can go in to see the wheels and an exhibition about work and daily life in the port from the 1500s to the 1700s.
