Town in 🇩🇪 Germany with a population of around 43 thousand people.
The Hanseatic city of Wismar, with its mix of red-brick Gothic and Renaissance architecture, is a real treat for travellers. Once a major port, the city is now a popular tourist destination, thanks to its well-preserved old town, which is a UNESCO World Heritage Site. Highlights include the Marienkirche (St. Mary’s Church), the Wasserkunst (Waterworks), and the Rathaus (Town Hall), all of which are well worth a visit. Don’t miss the opportunity to sample some of the local seafood, either – Wismar is known for its herring.
