In our Blog about Wroclaw we actually provide you a lot of inspiration and ideas regarding sightseeing in Wroclaw – at least we believe so… But some people just prefer to join some guided tours in Wroclaw as then you don’t have to fight with maps and can relax as there is nothing you really need to take care of 🙂
Today in our latest post we are sharing the best city tours of Wroclaw, of which we did some already ourselves (we can be lazy too!). Besides of the classic guided walking tour through Wroclaw, you will also be introduced to some more alternative guided tours – for example about street art, through the four temple district, food tours, or maybe you prefer to explore Wroclaw by bike or boat? Of course, if our posts about the history of Wroclaw did not go deep enough for you, there are also some educational options available.
You prefer to explore the city for yourself? No worries as we provide you with some great links here as well which will enable you to have a self-guided-walk in Wroclaw that you can still see the most impressive things on your own!
1. The “classic” City Tour of Wroclaw
Of course we will be starting with the classic guided city tour of Wroclaw. Why? With this one you will see the most important things, mostly around the Old Town.
The obvious choice if you just have little time and want to get a first impression. However, if this is not your first time in Wroclaw, we would recommend you to try a more specific tour from the following ones.
2. The alternative Tour with Street Art in Wroclaw
You prefer a more alternative guided tour in Wroclaw? No problem, then the Nadodrze District is the best destination for you. Lots of street art, old pieces of pre-war history and small little unique and independent shops are waiting for you! No surprise that Nadodrze often is compared with Berlin-Kreuzberg.
3. A Free Walking Tour in Wroclaw
A guided tour for free! Well, you might know the concept of free walking tours… It sounds nice, but eventually you will give some tip anyway, we would therefore more describe it as “pay as you want” tour.
In Wroclaw, the walkative tours are available and offer classic tours, world war tours, but tours related to the islands in Wroclaw. The meeting point is mostly the Fredo monument which you see here in the picture.
4. The Bicycle-Tour of Wroclaw
Ready for action? Poland might not be known as the most cyclist-friendly-country and yet so many people really love to cycle around here. With this tour, a guide will show you the city on bicycles – which enables you to actually see much more than you could in a classic walking tour.
You also will be introduced to the “rules of the street” in Wroclaw, so have fun and stay safe 🙂
5. The Food Tour in Wroclaw
Wroclaw is the unofficial foodie-capital of Poland, and we definitely would underline this statement. No matter if you are looking for traditional Polish cuisine or for innovative fusion food, you will get it in Wroclaw.

Yes, the city is a different one at night. All the illuminations on the Cathedral Island, in the city centre, but also on some of the more hidden spots like this night market from the picture.

7. A combined walking tour and cruise
We like this option because it gives you a great combination of different worlds. First of all, you will be exploring Wroclaw with a guide – let us say, till your feet are hurting…
But then, in the second part, you can be lazy again as your guide will take you on a little cruise, the perfect way to relax and finish a nice tour.

Once upon a time, the Jewish community of Wroclaw was huge and one of the largest in Germany. Today only a few hundred people are part of the community.

16. A sustainable trip with the solar boat on the Oder River
Who likes eco friendly options should definitely consider this great tour – you will spend one hour on the Oder River in a little solar boat. No diesel, no fuel, just energy from the sun.
You will most likely get around the city centre, see the Slodowa Island, the University, go underneath the Grunwald Bridge and see many more nice things.
We found this tour quite often for less than 10 EUR, which makes it also very affordable! Available only during summer months.
17. The classic City Tour by electric car
This is one of the most booked and successful tours in Wroclaw! Why? Well, just imagine a rainy day… Or you already explored so much of Wroclaw that you just want to be lazy and listed to interesting stories for a bit.
