The Grzymisław Trail

The name of the trail comes from the medieval rulers of these lands, the Duke of Tczew Grzymislav, and the main theme is cultural heritage of Kociewie region. Along the way, you can see the sights of Tczew, priceless cathedral complex in Pelplin, a charming little town Gniew with a monumental Teutonic castle and located on a high Vistula River embankment town Nowe.

The route leads on local roads with low traffic and forest and dirt unsurfaced roads. Sometimes the sand surface in the woods can be tedious, which is why it is better to take wider tires. The trail is rather long and somewhat difficult, intended rather for more experienced cyclists, but at the same time the trail offers wonderful sights and picturesque landscape of Kociewie – “The Gentle Land”.
