Time stood still in the Hansa city of Wismar. The well preserved old town covers a large area. There is still a lot of restoration work to do. Anyway, the pre-war ambience is still there.
Stroll through the side streets and discover. Photo options are at every street corner and even when you pass the same spot for the fifth time you will discover a new picture to take.
The town has maintained its medieval and early modern structure, including the old port basin and the canal that runs through the town. World War II bombs have hit the industrial areas and destroyed two of the three medieval churches but spared most of the old town. You may find more spectacular individual architectures in other Hansa cities like Lübeck or Stralsund. In Wismar, it is the ensemble that matters, and that made the town UNESCO World Heritage. To present some of those ensembles I wrote a few tips that describe entire streets.
The hotel is conveniently located in the old town next to Wassertor, in close vicinity to the harbour and a few minutes... more travel advice
