There are many possibilities, mostly in Warsaw (Warszawa), Frankfurt am Main or Copenhagen. Poznań has direct international connections with London (cheap airports), Munich, Frankfurt am Main, Copenhagen, Vienna and domestic with Warsaw and Cracow (Kraków). If you fly over Warsaw or Berlin it is recommendable, go farther to Poznań by train. Each working day 5 trains go from Berlin to Poznań and from Warsaw over 10 trains. Poznań has convenient train connections with Gdańsk and Szczecin. Both cities are sea harbours with ferry connections to Scandinavia, moreover Gdańsk belongs to the biggest Polish airports. Please note, that in Poland in many trains a reservation is obligatory. You can consult a German or Polish timetable.
