    The old town of Wismar exudes a special charm. You will find magnificent buildings in the brick Gothic typical of the city, carefully restored town houses and one of the best preserved medieval city centers in Germany. Let your eyes wander and stroll through the streets to the St. Mary's Church - a church tower without a ship - and enjoy the view from the observation deck of the Georgenkirche.

    Wismar was even under the Swedish flag for some time. After the 30-year war, the Scandinavians dominated the city, until 1903 from southern Sweden again Mecklenburg was. Every year on the third weekend of August, the Wismarers revive this period.

    You can eat wonderfully for a reasonable price in the restaurant Oberdeck. In the evening fine in the restaurant on the 1st floor. At noon the most delicious fish in the lake pearl below.
