Medieval Crane : Michelin's recommendations
Originally used to unload cargoes, this wooden crane has a majestic silhouette. The largest medieval machine of its kind in Europe, it is today the symbol of Gdansk. Rebuilt in 1444 after a fire, it was enhanced in the 17C with the addition of an upper structure capable of lifting two tonnes 27m into the air (useful for the erection of tall masts). Severely damaged in the war, it was restored between 1955 and 1962 and is now part of the Central Maritime Museum.
