A seaside resort on the Baltic Sea needs a Seesteg, a jetty where cruise boats can land and from where people can enjoy the view of the sea and the coastline. Kühlungsborn used to have one since around 1900 but the old one had disappeared after the war and 40 years of socialism. Kühlungsbor-Ost’s pride and joy, the new Seesteg, has been opened...more
The bronze Sailor’s Wife is looking out for her husband’s ship from the beach promenade in Kühlungsborn-West, hoping for him to return to shore soon safe and sound. She represents the fate of the women in the villages and towns whose husbands (boyfriends, fathers, sons) are away for weeks and months at a time. The women have to cope with the...more

It´s a little nice cinema. It´s very peronal and very cheap.
You find it directly on the campingground Kuehlungsborn - west.
Steam railway into town, connects with the mainline at Bad Doberan, a fantastic half hour or so journey.Two station in Kühlungsborn, Ost and West, why not get off at one and walk to the other along the seafront? lovely way to spend an afternoon.Anyway, this is a working railway and not just for tourists and pretty busy on a Monday, I guess very...more
There is only one ship, the MS Baltica, that does cruises along the coast from Kühlungsborn.

Jellyfish appear at the beaches frequently. It is startling to be touched by something glibbery in the water but most of them are completely harmless. As long as the four rings are white, pink, blue or dark violet there is nothing to worry about. Sometimes you’ll see kids throwing them at each other for fun.
Watch its elegant movements if you meet one in shallow water.
In German they are named Quallen – doesn’t that sound like a lovely glibbery handful of jelly?
There is, however, a bright red or orange variety called Feuerqualle (fire jellyfish) which ought to be avoided because they burn. These are rare but in case you spot one, stay away. They won’t kill you but they give painful burns which take some days to heal.
Bad Heiligendamm is the next village east of Kuehlungsborn. I heard it should be great and mostly for rich people. of course you can find Kempinsky hotels which looks great but the beaches are not so good like the beaches of Kuehlungsborn and I don´t like the atmosphere around the Kempinsky hotels so much.
Unique Suggestions: You can go to the Seabridge and if you´ll made a tour with the "Molly train" from Bad Doberan or Kuehlungsborn made a stop for one hour in this village. it´s enough.
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 Strandstraßemore
DLRG (Deutsche Lebensrettungsgesellschaft, German Life Savers’ Association) are keeping watch on the beach. At certain intervals you see their sheds with a lookout on top.

Swimming in the sea can of course be done. How pleasant it is depends on current weather conditions. The weather along the coast cannot be relied upon. I was lucky during my stay!Water (Wasser) and air (Luft) temperature, wind direction and strength are written on amall boards at all beach entrances every day. However, the figure 16 for water...more
