Hanseatic town and UNESCO World Heritage Site
Wismar is an old Hanseatic town and World Heritage Site - and simply beautiful! You can get a real sense of history in one of Europe's best preserved historic town centres. You will find all kinds of beautifully renovated historic buildings standing right next to each other, including luxurious, modest and intriguing ones. The town is a work of art that reflects the spirit of various eras and influences. This also impressed UNESCO in 2002 and was the reason it assigned world heritage status to Wismar.
A different wind blows out on the bay and opposite at the different island beaches of Poel. Children laugh and splash about in the water, those craving the sun simply sunbathe, trawlers chug along, dogs bark - here you can really unwind and enjoy your break! Just like nature. There is hardly any other place where you can hear so many different birds than here on Poel.
