When you see the colourful frontage of houses on the large market square, you know why. The hotel, which was originally a house of the Deutsche Seerederei, is as colourful as the city is full of life. From the hotel you can walk to the historic harbour and watch the fishing boats, yachts, and sailors. A stroll through the alleyways will take you on a journey into the past. Where else can you find such a well-preserved city centre in Europe? If you want to feel the Middle Ages, breathe the harbour air, and experience Baltic charm, this is the place to be.
Moin, the Breakfast Club wishes you a good start to the day. Wismar’s harbour inspires the selection of the à-la-carte menu as well as the extensive market buffet. Sourdough bread and rolls come from Wismar’s traditional bakery Tilsen, cheese from the weekly market, vegetables from the local Fruchtkontor and fish from local waters. Fresh juices and loose tea, as well as coffee beans from the Austrian roasting company Hornig round off the offer.

With its brick churches and impressive market square with restored town houses, Wismar has one of the best-preserved medieval town centres in Germany. Before you go on your own foray through the World Heritage City, visit the free exhibition in the World Heritage House. Not only is the hotel located on the market square, but also the famous “Alter Schwede” building, one of the oldest town houses in the city with an imposing late Gothic brick façade.
The beautiful water art in the centre of the square is the town’s landmark. It once supplied 220 houses and 16 watering places with spring water.
The legendary and notorious pirate Klaus Störtebeker used to live here.
