Bike Touring Highlight
Anklam was first mentioned in 1243 and joined the Hanseatic League in 1283. The prosperity of the Hanseatic era can be seen in the brick churches of St. Marien and St. Nikolai, but also in the Gothic gabled house. The most famous Anklamer is Otto Lilienthal, who made his first flight attempts here. The Otto Lilienthal Museum and a special exhibition in the Nikolaikirche are dedicated to him.

The center of the Hanseatic city fascinated me while walking through it and discovering it, there is something new to see on every corner. Anklam has a special flair due to its location on the Peene and as a former Hanseatic city.
I enjoy cycling here and getting to know the city and its surroundings.

The city is best known as the birthplace of the aviation pioneer Otto Lilienthal. His life stages and works as well as the development of the flying machines can be admired in the Otto Lilienthal Museum in Anklam. There is also a 16 m high monument in honor of Otto Lilienthal on the horse market near St. Mary's Church.
In addition to St. Mary's Church, built in the 13th century, there is another church in Anklam. The Nikolaikirche, like the St. Marienkirche, is a three-aisled hall church in the style of brick architecture. Construction began in the 14th century. It was completed at the end of the 15th century and completely destroyed except for the surrounding walls in the last days of the war in 1945. The reconstruction of the Nikolaikirche began in 1995. Today it serves as a place for concerts, exhibitions and lectures. Cultural highlights are the annual Hanseatic Festival and the summer open-air theater "Die Peene brennt". You can learn about regional and city history in the museum in the Anklamer Steintor. Right next door, the market square with its small shops and cafés invites you to linger.
