Once built, sunk, rebuilt, the magnificently restored ship is a must for maritime fans. Ahoy and kick in rig training, boarding the main mast and setting sail is possible under expert guidance by arrangement. For very special occasions. Celebrating and getting married too, by the way.
If you let your gaze wander a bit further, you'll see Germany's largest cable-stayed bridge, the Rügenbrückeshow on map. It was opened in 2007, following a three-year construction period and costing around 125 million euros in total to build. At 127.75 metres high and 4,097 metres long in total, it connects Stralsund to Rügen.
The three-lane bridge, only approved for motor traffic, relieves the strain on the Rügendamm and offers ships clearance of 42 metres. The Rügenbrücke is a real eye-catcher and Stralsund's modern landmark that can be seen from afar.
A FAMOUS BEACH RESORT
An almost Mediterranean attitude to life is conveyed in the summer by the city beachshow on map, which promises refreshing swimming fun after a long stroll or late lie-in.
The seaside resort, which was opened in 1922, can be reached from the old town in no time at all on foot or by bike along the Sound Promenade. Free swimming fun in the middle of Stralsund. In 2011 it was smartened up with 20,000 square metres of the finest sand and is accessible to everyone at any time free of charge. Just spread out your towel and relax. The sandy beach in the city by the sea promises refreshing swimming fun all day long from early morning when the very "well-rested" plunge into the high water before breakfast. And if you happen to have stumbled across a "Stralsund Fährwasser" the night before, a caraway schnapps from Stralsund's oldest pub, then the sound's cool water will certainly help!
