Home Ports Germany Wismar


Wismar is a city located in the German state of Mecklenburg-Vorpommern. It is situated on the Baltic Sea, approximately 40 kilometres (25 miles) east of Lübeck and 50 kilometres (31 miles) northeast of Schwerin. Wismar is known for its medieval architecture, which dates back to the 13th century.

The city is home to a number of historic buildings, including the Gothic Marienkirche (St. Mary’s Church), the Renaissance Rathaus (town hall) and the Gothic Wasserkunst (waterworks). These buildings are part of the Old Town of Wismar, which is listed as a UNESCO World Heritage Site.

Wismar was first mentioned in 1229 as a trading settlement. In 1301, it became part of the Hanseatic League, a powerful trading organization of northern European cities. During the 15th and 16th centuries, Wismar was a major port and trading centre. In 1648, it was conquered by Sweden, and in 1803 it became part of the Grand Duchy of Mecklenburg-Schwerin.

In 1945, Wismar was heavily damaged during World War II. After the war, it was part of East Germany until 1990, when it was reunified with West Germany. Since then, the city has undergone a major restoration, and many of its historic buildings have been restored.

Today, Wismar is a popular tourist destination, with its picturesque Old Town, charming harbour and well-preserved medieval buildings. It is also home to numerous festivals and events, including the annual Wismar Market, which celebrates the city’s maritime history.
