    The water gate is the last surviving of formerly five city gates of the Wismar city fortifications. You wonder why a base plate with Nosferatu is embedded here? In Wismar one of the first horror movies in film history was shot. The first Dracula film entitled "Nosferatu" was recorded in 1921, among others, at the water gate.

    The water gate is a landmark of Wismar. Coming from the city, it is the gateway to the harbor. Once there, there is a lot to see. Great cafes invite you to linger and do not forget to try the delicious fish sandwiches.

    Gate to the harbor. The hotel next to it is recommended especially for cyclists on the Baltic Sea cycle path. You have a garage with plenty of space for bicycles.

    In addition to the water gate, you can also see a piece of the old city wall and opposite is the harbor, where you can buy fresh from the cutter fish.

    1869/70 demolished the city wall along with the other gates. The water gate and the old water tower are the last testimonies of this wall. 1921 was the water gate next to the courtyard of the Holy Spirit Church, St. Mary's Church tower and the Old Harbor filming location for the film Nosferatu.
