Historic Centers of Stralsund & Wismar UNESCO World Heritage Site:
Wismar's history began in the times of Wendish tribes. It was founded in 1229.
Start your tour with a scenic walk from the pier to the historical city center -- a UNESCO World Heritage site. Pass along cobblestone streets with Gothic houses, Baroque buildings and Renaissance façades to see the Town Hall and merchants' houses dating from the Middle Ages.
You've come to the right place for good beer. In the Hanseatic period, the citizens of Wismar drank Mumme -- a strong dark beer that was safer to drink than the water. Enjoy a taste of local beer along with a pretzel, all within the nostalgic atmosphere of the Brauerei am Lohberg. This local microbrewery and pub first opened in 1452.
