First time at the festival? Welcome! It’s great that you are here, below are some tips and necessary information to help you get around:
The main festival center is located in the Pomeranian Science and Technology Park Gdynia (Pomorski Park Naukowo-Technologiczny Gdynia), at Aleja Zwycięstwa 96/98. It is where the majority of exhibitions, lectures and workshops will take place.
At the same time, the festival is present throughout Gdynia. We would also like invite you to the GDD satellite – the Design Terminal located in Park Rady Europy.
Some of the events and exhibitions will take place in Infobox, Gdynia City Museum (Muzeum Miasta Gdyni), the Tourist Information and retail and service spaces along the Świętojańska and Starowiejska streets.
Detailed information about all the locations can be found HERE and HERE.
The main festival center can be easily reached by SKM (suburban trains), bus, trolley bus, car or even by bike :)
Detailed information on how to reach GDD can be found HERE.
Information desks will be available around the festival. One will be located in the III building of the Pomeranian Science and Technology Park Gdynia, which is the main festival center. The second one is located in the Design Terminal, in Park Rady Europy. The map and detailed information about the location of information desks is available HERE.
Admission to all the exhibitions and most of the lectures is free and requires no registration.
Admission to most of the workshops is also free of charge. However, prior registration is required. Registration links to the individual events can be found by the specific events on the Home Page.
The “Create and Sell” events are the only exception. Admission to these events is paid and requires registration. The fee for each event is as follows:
- Lecture and consultation with Małgorzata Szczepańska 10 zł gross
- Workshop: 20 zł gross
The Pomeranian Science and Technology Park has a large underground paid parking zone. The entrance is located behind the PSTP Gdynia buildings, on the Paweł Łaźniak’s street.
Pomeranian Science and Technology Park Gdynia has been adapted for people with disabilities and people with strollers.
The Open’er music festival is being held parallel to GDD. Therefore, in this period the number of available accommodations may be very small and beds can be expensive (especially in the first weekend of July).
Information about accommodation can be searched for on pages like booking.com or Airbnb.
Although the decision to build a port was made in 1926, after Gdynia and Poland regained access to the sea, most leisure time is spent in the south. Let's change that and fall in love with Gdynia! A lot of great restaurants and cafes await you here, where you can relax in the green and on the beach listening to the sounds of the sea.
While visiting Gdynia during the Gdynia Design Days, follow the route of Gdynia’s modernism, murals and discover the ubiquitous design.
