Travel Tips for Wismar

Old Shop and Company Signs

by Kathrin_E

Time stood still in Wismar. If you keep your eyes open you can still spot the signs and advertisements of shops and companies that have long ceased to exist. Some may date before the First World War.

Photo 1: The store in Spiegelberg produced and sold sails, waterproof clothing, ropes, nautical maps, and about everything else a sailor needed. The style of the scripture points to the 1920s, if not even pre- World War I.

Photo 2: The workshop of a mechanic in Scheuerstraße advertises repairs on cars and motorbikes.

Photo 3: Heinerich Peters produced smoked eel and other fish in Neustadt.

Photo 4: The “Steam Washing and Ironing Institute” (in other words: laundry) was located next to Marienkirche.

Photo 5: The big grain stores in the harbour still bear the inscription from DDR times: “VEB Kombinat Getreidewirtschaft, Betrieb Wismar” (People-owned collective combine grain industry, factory Wismar).

Market Square

by Kathrin_E

The wide square has a size of 100 x 100 m. The historical buildings around it were already restored and kept in good shape in DDR times.

Notable buildings around market square: the neoclassical city hall, the gothic house named “alter Schwede”, and the renaissance water reservoir (see separate tips).

A farmers’ market takes place on Saturday mornings.

Watch your steps on the rough cobblestone pavement.

Grube

by Kathrin_E

The artificial watercourse that leads through the old town was built in the 13th century. It is part of a system of canals that connects the Lake of Schwerin with the Baltic Sea. It supplied freshwater, moved the wheels of the water mills, and provided water for fire-fighting.

See the Exhibition and Donate a Brick

by Kathrin_E

The people of Wismar dream of rebuilding Marienkirche. The surrounding walls and pillars have already been rebuilt up to a height of about 1 metre. If you want to help to make the impossible come true, you can support the project by donating a brick. For 10 € you receive a certificate and a brick which you can sign with the date and your name or whatever you want to write on it. These bricks will be used for building so your signature will remain in the church wall forever.

I donated one in the name of my little Australian travel companion…

An exhibition in and around the steeple shows more about the history of Marienkirche, a model of what it looked like, historical building machinery and a brickmaker’s workshop.

Archidiakonat

by Kathrin_E

The house of the main priest at Marienkirche in a brick gothic building, erected around 1450. The stepped gable must be the most beautiful of its kind in Wismar – right now (summer 2009) the building is in restauro and hidden behind scaffolding. All you get is a glimpse through gaps in the plastic foil.
