World Heritage Wismar

World Heritage Wismar

Wismar’s history began in the distant past, in the times of Wendish tribes. Situated near the legendary Via Regia, a Roman Road and the former east-west trading route, Wismar has been a well-known trading destination for hundreds of years. It was founded in 1229 and was among the first cities established in Mecklenburg. Merchants, guild-members, barrel makers, picklers, sailors, fishermen, traders and builders were drawn in to create a flourishing commercial center humming with friendly hustle and bustle. As a consequence of the thriving trade, pirates too were present. Klaus Stoertebecker, a legend in his own time and a well-known freebooter, lived in Wismar from 1370 to 1386, and is rumored to have been born here. Depart Warnemünde by coach and transfer directly to Wismar, where you will arrive after approximately a one-hour drive. During a short, guided walk, you will catch a brief glance of this quaint Hanseatic city. Pass along cobbled streets with Gothic houses, Baroque buildings and Renaissance façades. The Classical Rathaus (Town Hall), the Water Tower, the historic drainage system, and merchants’ houses from the Middle Ages are just some of the fascinating buildings this town has to offer. and you’ve come to the right place for good beer. In the Hanseatic period, the citizens of Wismar drank Mumme, a strong dark beer. Of course, good beer is still available in the Wismar of today and you will have the opportunity to try it for yourself. Enjoy a beer tasting and a traditional German snack within the nostalgic atmosphere of the Brauerei am Lohberg--a brewery and pub that started in the Middle Ages--where you will also have the chance to sample the medieval Mumme beer. Though it is not as strong as it used to be, it is still very tasty. Return to Warnemünde by coach after having experienced this lovely city and the centuries-old tradition of beer brewing in Wismar.
