A city with a powerful history is still a powerful draw

The historic city of Stralsund is a can't-miss destination for anyone on a trip in northern Germany, with its picturesque cobblestone streets, historic sites, and proximity to islands, lagoons, and beaches along the Baltic Sea. Originally a small fishing village, the city grew into a port with international influence in the 14th century as a member of the powerful Hanseatic League. Set in this vibrant city that's home to a growing high-tech industry and a draw for travelers interested in history and culture, your Stralsund vacation rental will feel steeped in the past and at the center of everything.

Stately brick homes and spirited summer festivals

Your first order of business upon arriving in Stralsund will be obvious. The city is studded with examples of Backsteingotik, classic red-brick gabled architecture, and you'll want to get a good look at all the Gothic turrets and decorative archways. Take yourself on a walking tour, or sign up for one led by a local expert, and be sure the beautiful, 13th-century City Hall is on the agenda. Be on the lookout for the spring Herring Festival that celebrates history and, well, eating, as well as harbor festivals through the summer.

Explore a religious past and a fishy present

Your Stralsund vacation rental will feel particularly well situated if you have a taste for history and a love of the sea. Nikolaikirche is known as a stunning example of medieval architecture. The church's altars date to 1270, and its astronomical clock was built in 1394. After delving into the past, head to the Ozeaneum to feel like you're in the future. This sleek, white aquarium has huge tanks holding thousands of underwater creatures. No time for 2 stops? The Meeresmuseum, an aquarium set in what was once a 13th-century convent, pleases animal lovers and history buffs alike.

Summers for strolling and winters for cozy contemplation

Most visitors come to Stralsund between April and October. The summers are warm, with highs in the 70s and sea breezes that keep vacationers cool as they walk around town and hike along the water. Winter is much quieter. You'll likely save if you book a Stralsund vacation rental between November and March, and you'll have the coastline to yourself. Bring warm clothes and rain gear no matter the season. Rain is less common in Stralsund than in many other towns on the Baltic Sea, but it's best to be prepared.

Sheer cliffs and sheerly stunning coastal landscapes

A Stralsund vacation rental is strategically set on Strelasund Sound, a strait of the Baltic Sea that has a single land bridge connected to the island of Rugen. One of the most popular spots in the nation for vacationers in summer, visit Rugen for its startling white chalk cliffs and green, rolling hills. Stralsund is also close to the Western Pomerania Lagoon Area National Park, an area of peninsulas, islands, and the waters of the Baltic. Come explore this protected area and its rich variety of plants and marine animals.
