1) Old Town Hall:
Toruń City Hall is one of the largest brick buildings in Europe and at the same time the most important monument of the Old Town of Toruń.
For centuries, it was the administrative and commercial center of the city, where fairs, tributes to rulers, knights' tournaments and even public execution of convicts were held.
The Town Hall was built in the Gothic style in the end of the 14th century. A tower built more than a century earlier was included in the building, additionally raised and decorated with a tin helmet. Currently, the building houses the District Museum, which among others displays a gallery of Gothic art and a collection of Polish kings. In addition, the Museum provides visitors with a tour of the Town Hall Tower, on the top of which there is a viewpoint.

3) Władysław Dziewulski's Planetarium: The planetarium in Toruń is located in a former gas tank. It is one of the most visited planetariums in Europe, with more visitors than other objects of this type. The heart of the Planetarium is a star projector, which faithfully recreates the view of the sky at any moment and any place on Earth. Thus, in the artificial sky, which is a dome with a diameter of 15 m, we can see all phenomena visible from the Earth in the real sky. Address: ul. Franciszkańska 15-21, tel: 56 622 50 66
4) Ruins of the Teutonic Castle: these are remains of the first and at the same time the oldest Teutonic stronghold in the Chełmińska Land. Therefore, the layout of the Toruń castle (on the horseshoe scratch) is different from typical Teutonic castles on the square plan. The castle is available for both individual tourists and organized groups. Visitors are allowed to see the castle courtyard, the underground and the so-called gdanisko (knight's castle toilet).
