Brick Gothic Architecture on the Baltic Sea

Due to the historical old town (Altstadt) which has been declared a World Heritage Site by UNESCO, this city on the Baltic coast is one of the main attractions of Mecklenburg. Shortly after being established in 1226 Wismar became a flourishing hanseatic city. After a disastrous fire in 1267 the city was rebuilt in the style of Brick Gothic Architecture, which characterizes the city even today. The 100 m x 100 m large market square with its town hall and community center is well worth seeing. A replica of the Poel cog, a wreck that was salvaged in Timmendorf in 1999, can be found in the old harbor. This cargo ship dating back to 1354 is the largest known of its kind from the Late Middle Ages.
