This is located on the western corner of Market Square directly in front of St. Elizabeth’s Church and it’s basically based on the Hansel & Greta House. The two houses are joined together with an arch underneath. Nothing spectacular but its there so you might...More

I didn't find these buildings that exciting. They're free to go and see and are on the main square but there's not really that much to see that will take more than a couple of minutes. The walking tour I was on took us by...More

Unusual pair of houses with an archway joining the two are more commonly known as the Hansel and Gretel houses. Not much here apart from one has been turned into a bar. You pass through this arch from Rynek Square to St Elizabeth Church.

Nice to look at and take photos but nothing else to do. Located just next to the town square and nice to stop by and spot some Wraclaw dwarfs.

These two houses are joined by an archway and are at an unusual angle to the street, worth looking out for as you are passing by as it is very central to Rynek.

Cut but nothing special to do there other than take pictures. The arched gate used to lead to the church’s cemetery. It’s right off the main square so you don’t have to go out of your way for it.

The unique feature of this attraction is the archway that connects the 2 houses - one plain white, the other with a decorative facade. Yet it was a let-down as there seemed to be nothing outstanding about that arch or the 2 houses. The historical...More
