Things to do

You'll be mesmerized by medieval Wismar

Travel back in time when you visit the old town of Wismar's Market Place, where buildings—some of them hundreds of years old—stand in dignified splendor. Get up close and personal with structures built in the Brick Gothic style, including the tower church of Saint Mary's Church and a patrician's home called the Alter Schwede. Book Nordwestmeckenbrug vacation rentals and learn about Miswar's modern side; there are guided tours at the phanTECHNIKUM Museum that showcase the evolution of technology in Mecklenburg-West Pomerania. Take the kids to Tierpark Wismar, a 42-acre zoo that shelters animals like silver foxes, European bison, and red deer.


Pastoral pleasures in the German countryside

Travel along tree-lined country roads to discover quaint farming villages, manor houses, and windmills. This German region is home to hundreds of secluded lakes where you can fish and canoe. Getting there is half the fun; take a bicycle trip or travel by horse and carriage. If you're feeling adventurous, go by horseback. Enjoy a picnic in the countryside and linger in the towns and villages where you can take in festivals, concerts, and architecture that go back to the Middle Ages. And don't forget the beaches! You and your crew can enjoy sailing, swimming, kitesurfing, and rejuvenating in some of Europe's best spas.


Soak up Nordwestmecklenburg's long summer days

Nordwestmecklenburg's climate is cool with moderate rainfall—a big factor in its reputation as a prime vacation destination. The warmest months are June through August, the perfect time to hit the beach, when daytime highs are in the mid- to upper 60s with nighttime lows in the mid-50s. Winter temperatures range from the high 30s to mid-40s. Extended daylight hours are between April and September, ranging from 13 to 18 hours per day. The countryside is particularly beautiful in the spring and fall, and the Baltic Coast is known for its winter focus on health, offering beauty and wellness treatments at spas and retreats.
