The wooden part (walking part) covers, aside from the main bridge (511.5 m, out of which 458 m go deep into the Bay of Gdańsk), lower decks and a side deck, which allow docking of passenger ships and yachts. In the half of 2011 at the head of the Pier, a harbour for over 100 yachts was put into use, near which the Meridian restaurant operates. The iodine concentration in places closest to the sea is twice as high as on land. The entrance onto the walking bridge is free to 27 April 2018. Remember to take special care because due to difficult atmospheric conditions (precipitation, low temperatures or gusty wind), the wooden deck may be very slippery!
