Poznań is located about half way between Warsaw (280 km) and Berlin (240 km), and there are good, frequent rail connections between those two cities and Poznań.
Check your connections using the timetables of the Polish Railways [https://rozklad-pkp.pl/] (for connections from Poznań, please select the main station, Poznań Główny, if requested; the station to select in Warsaw is Warszawa Centralna; in Berlin, Hauptbahnhof or Ostbahnhof). You can also consult the German Railways route planner [https://www.bahn.de/].
Poznań's Ławica airport has frequent daily connections with Warsaw (LOT Polish Airlines), as well as Munich and Frankfurt (LOT and Lufthansa) and Copenhagen (SAS).
Poznań is also served by low-cost carrirers, Wizzair (e.g. London Luton) and Ryanair (e.g. London Stansted, Barcelona Girona, Budapest, Milan Bergamo, Rome Ciampino, Stockholm Arlanda etc.).
The złoty (abbreviated PLN or zł) is the official currency in Poland. The approximate average exchange rate (07 Jul 2023) is 4.49 złoties to a Euro (or 4.12 złoties to a US Dollar).
Polish sockets are standard European sockets, with a voltage of 230 V/50Hz. All visitors coming from countries using appliances/plugs that do not work with such sockets/voltages (especially American and British guests) are advised to bring adapters.
All European mobiles will work without problems, and European Union users will be able to take advantage of their home rates rather than roaming. High speed internet is available throughout the urban area but charges may apply for visitors from outside the European Union; please check with your operator to avoid unexpected costs.
Polish weather is usually agreeable in September, with temperatures of around 20 Centigrade during the day. With worse luck, a raincoat and umbrella may find some use. Current forecast available here [https://www.wunderground.com/weather/pl/poznań].
