Overview

Endless tree-lined roads, tranquil lakes, and a unique coastal landscape are captured in this striking travel companion, illustrating why Mecklenburg-Western Pomerania is one of the most popular travel destinations in Germany. Showcasing the chalk cliffs of Rügen, the seaside resorts of Usedom, and the intactness of nature on the peninsula of Fischland, this guide also ventures inland, exploring the Mecklenburg Lakeland’s green meadows, broad fields, and forest-covered hills, offering diverse landscapes interspersed with historic buildings and significant artworks. The history of the Hanseatic League is depicted in the old trading cities of Stralsund, Wismar, Rostock, and Greifswald, their cityscapes shining in new splendor. Castles and places built during the Renaissance and in the 16th and 17th centuries testify to the wealth of those times, portrayed in an array of images along with the first seaside resort established in the late 18th century in Heiligendamm. Presenting Mecklenburg-Western Pomerania in all its diversity, this guide also contains four additional features, shedding light on famous artists Casper David Friedrich, Philipp Otto Runge, and Ernst Barlach; the region’s many writers such as Ernst-Moritz Arndt, Hans Fallada, and Walter Kempowski; the history of the Baltic seaside resorts; and the legendary pirate Klaus Störtebeker.
