Free carpark on outskirts of town


Wismar is another port and Hanseatic city and was founded in around the 13th century and has been under control of Germans as well as the swedish empire and became part of the German Empire in 1871 (the Swedish renounced its claims to it only in 1903.

Its very similar buildings are like the other Hanseatic city of Lubeck we just visited before this, the red brick gothic architecture

Decided to stop off at Lubeck on our way to Wismar. I couldnt pass by from the reasearch id done online to see both these little towns!
The city centre, very small and quaint – a very quiet little town, the streets were very quiet no matter where I walked
The beautiful city from above!
I just loved the cute details of some of the shop interiors
The UNESCO Marketplace with the Waterworks in the background there which is from 1602
The cute little streets, quiet and clean
The difference between this town from the other colourful ones was that the buldings were more lighter pastel colours and a lot more light creams, yellows and greens compared to the brighter colours
I loved this man and his piano!! only in Germany… gosh I love Europe!
The streets really were very quiet and it was nice like that because I could just walk around and check things out without having 4,578 people in my photos
St Nicholas Church

St. George’s Church belongs to the most significant historical monuments of North German brick Gothic architecture. It was constructed in a long period spanning the Late Middle Ages and the Reformation, undergoing several design changes before its final completion in 1594. The colossal nave and transept is testament to the last great parish church constructed in the Middle Ages in Northern Germany. After extensive damage by an air raid in April 1945, the church could no longer be used.

even the old delabitated buildings look beautiful

ST MARYS CHURCH

St Marys Church

The 80 m high tower church of St Mary (Marienkirche) is the only remainder of the original Brick Gothic edifice, built in the first half of the 13th century. It suffered heavy damage in World War II, and was deliberately destroyed in 1960 under the East German Communist government.

It was so quiet around this church, its basically a half ruin and the front area is where the older part of the church used to be and it was basically just me around there

The cute market square… eerily quiet during the day

DINNER IN THE VAN

Dinner was ready by the time I trundled home from my exploring, I was thoroughly satisfied – we also found a supermarket and grabbed a few more items and stocked up or fridge and underground booze pantry!
We were basically at this car park on our own, it was a very random place, there were dog walkers and kids on skate boards and we felt a bit uncomforable here and were going to move but thought against it and just stayed, it ended up being fine

We drove into another van park just across the road and it was full so they directed us here which did end up being better as we had so much space compared to the van park
