Wismar, charming hanseatic city on the Baltic Sea

Wismar

Hanseatic beauty on the Baltic Sea

At the southern tip of the Baltic Sea lies the Hanseatic city Wismar. Thanks to its port in the sheltered waters of Wismar bay, the city became a key centre of commerce, which is still reflected today in the magnificent Hanseatic buildings in the area.

The historic centre of Wismar and its many cultural treasures was added with Stralsund to the UNESCO World Heritage List in 2002. Due to its good transport links, the Hanseatic city is also popular for short escapes and weekend trips.
