If the prospect of the wonderful Danse Macabre isn't enough to tempt you into the parish church of St Petri, then maybe the view from the top of the tower will be!

St Petri's belltower is unusual in that it is octagonal in design - however, the impression is one of squat robustness rather than architectural distinction. The landscape around Wolgast is extremely flat, and so although the tower isn't particularly tall, you get a wonderful view out over the town and the surrounding countryside. In particular, the shipyards on the Peenestrom river are impressive, as is the bridge between Usedom island and the mainland.

We really enjoyed it even on a rainy day, so it must be lovely when the weather is kinder!

Review Helpfulness: 3.5 out of 5 stars
