From the Market Square to the port of the old Hanseatic town of Wismar

Impressive buildings characterize the old town of Wismar, declared a World Heritage Site by UNESCO. There’s a lively, colorful spirit in the port, with cutters inviting you to go fishing for cod.


The old town of Hanseatic Wismar, lying on the bay of the same name on the Baltic Sea coast, is an impressive UNESCO World Heritage Site. The Market Square is surrounded by impressive buildings, including the handsome classical-style Town Hall and the Marienkirche church with its defiant steeple rising over 80 meters high. The symbol of this Western-Pomeranian town is the famous Wasserkunst Wismar, an enchanting Renaissance fountain complex. Discover Wismar's oldest building, the Gothic Town House 'Alter Schwede' from around 1380. Right on the market square you'll also find the Hotel Steigenberger Hotel Stadt Hamburg. From here it’s just a short hop to the port, which still oozes maritime flair and where the great fish market takes place weekends.
