    Why Go There?

    Although very small, or perhaps because of it, but Wismar attracts thousands of visitors every year. It´s a town with flair, character & a port which provides a beautiful backdrop not only for romantic sunsets.

    The Hanseatic city of Wismar can look back on a long and eventful history, it still has a lot to offer historically by far not only culturally much is required. So here is certainly every tourist money's worth. Wismar is located on the western Baltic coast in Mecklenburg-Vorpommern, on the edge of the island of Poel protected from Wismar Bay. It is the sixth largest city in the state.

    The entire Altstadt was listed in UNESCO World Heritage in 2002. With its gabled facades and cobbled streets, this small, picturesque city looks essentially Hanseatic. The city spend most of the 16th and 17th centuries as part of Sweden and you will find numerous reminders of that era all over town. Wismar´s Altstadt  centres on the Markt , said to be the largest medieval town square in northern Germany.

    You can easily explore the inner city in a couple of hours, while enjoying a delicious fish sandwich (from as little as 2$) which are sold directly from a handful of bobbing boats.
