Day trip to Klaipėda from Vilnius worth it
Save

Hi

I was looking at day trips from Vilnius and saw day trips to Klaipėda Old Town.

However i have found mixed reviews on this town. Is it worth sacrificing one of my 2.5 days in Vilnius for the 12 hour round trip

Thanks

Hi,

to be correct it's 4hrs one way by bus, train takes a bit longer.

You don't mention your interests but for what it is i don't think Klaipeda is worth that hassle...It's a good base for exploring the seaside, Palanga or Curonian Spit, but you are short in time.

I would suggest Trakai half-day trip.

Check the events in Vilnius for your dates, just loose yourself in the streets and relax:

Hi,

IIt was going to be an organised tour "Klaipėda Old Town & Coast Day Tour" and included Kėdainiai Old Town, Klaipėda and beach walk. As well as someone else doing the driving.

II was allready seeing Trakai and kaunas so i would only be using up one of my 2.5 days

Thanks

I can't recommend a day trip from Vilnius to Klaipeda. Klaipeda has a population of about 30,000 - about the same as Burgess Hill. There's not enough to see there to justify sitting on a bus for so long

@brit

Klaipeda is the 3rd biggest city in Lithuania with some 150’000 population.

And since the guided tour includes other attractions on a way like a pretty town Kedainiai, the Dutch cap and beach i think it’s worth the time.

I would like to hear back from the poster afterwards.
