    Why Go There?

    Stralsund is a jewel in the northern German region thanks to the unique waterfront location. This vibrant city´s historic cobbled streets and many attractions make it an unmissable stop.

    Stralsund´s UNESCO-recognised Altstadt is effectively on it´s own island, surrounded by beautiful lakes and the sea. You can easily spend a day wandering here. Amidst all the careful restorations, you´ll discover the odd unreconstructed 17th century veteran to add spice and context.

    Stralsund was once the second most important member of the Hanseatic Leage, after Lübeck and its square gables interspersed with Gothic turrets, ornate portals and vaulted arches make it one of the leading examples of classic redbrick Gothic gabled architecture in northern Germany.
