Stralsund - rich history and tranquil beaches

    Stralsund is both the gateway to the island of Rügen and a popular vacation resort with an impressive old town, a lively harbor and charming beaches. The Rügen Bridge and Rügen Dam across the 3 km wide Strelasund estuary connect the Hanseatic town of Stralsund in Western Pomerania with the vacation island of Rügen. Discover Stralsund's picturesque old town, a UNESCO World Heritage Site. Over 500 listed buildings await you. The route leads you along pretty facades to the Old Market Square with St. Nicholas Church, which was built in 1270. Its interior contains a masterfully crafted wooden high altar and a twelve-meter-high shrine adorned with 100 hand-carved sculptures. The town hall in North German brick Gothic style, the city's imposing landmark, is also located on the Alter Markt. In the harbor, excursion boats invite you to take exciting trips. The Strelasund coast attracts visitors with its fine sand and colorful beach chairs. From IntercityHotel Stralsund at the main train station, you can easily reach the old town and the harbor on foot.
