    Catholic Church

    The catholic church is a very young building, consecrated in 2000. The architecture is supposed to resemble sails and the construction of a boat.

    Location: Kühlungsborn-Ost, not far from the marina and the beach promenade

    Former imperial post office

    The former post office from pre World War I times is not in operation any more. The inscription on the façade is still there. “Kaiserliches Postamt” (Imperial Post Office). The building has long been turned into holiday apartments.

    Location: Kühlungsborn-Ost, southern end of Strandstraße

    Cemetery

    The alley
    4 more images

    The cemetery around the old protestant parish church has been in use for centuries. Kühlungsborn’s deceased rest in a romantic spot underneath old trees. The narrow paths among old and new graves, hedges, wildflowers, shrubs and trees resemble more a maze than any regular layout. The main path in the middle is a shady alley, formed by old linden and birch trees. If you visit the church, don’t miss a stroll along the cemetery.

    Location: in the far southwestern corner of Kühlungsborn on the edge of the town. South of Kühlungsborn-Mitte train station. About 25 minutes walk from the beach promenade in Kühlungsborn-Ost, more from Kühlungsborn-West. If you have a bike at hand, use it.

    Protestant Parish Church

    Protestant church
    4 more images

    The protestant church is by far the oldest building in the whole of Kühlungsborn. The nuns in a nearby convent founded the parish in the middle ages and had the first small church built from field stones. The church has been extended a couple of times in the run of the centuries. The furnishing of the interior is a mix of eras and styles. Together with the surrounding cemetery it is an off the beaten path sight that I recommend visiting.

    Located on a hill 100 m above sea level, the lighthouse is a landmark in the landscape west of Kühlungsborn. The hill offers, weather permitting, a wide view of the coastline and the sea. There is also a café. You can reach the lighthouse by car, so this is not a strenuous excursion. The lighthouse can easily be combined with a visit to Rerik.
