    Lindengarten

    2.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    The grounds of the former Swedish fortification on the eastern side of the old town was planted with linden trees and turned into a park in 1815. The paths along the moat and the pond are a place to rest and have a picnic.

    There is history here, too. A tower than once belonged to the 15th century fortification is still guarding the entrance to the park. In 1682 a whim was built next to it and from then till the 19th century the tower was used as a water tower for the town’s water supply.

    On the opposite side of the street, note the clock with a historical advertisement for a well-known washing detergent.

    Zeughaus – the Arsenal

    by Kathrin_E Written Jul 31, 2009

    2.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    The arsenal is a remarkable example of baroque military architecture. It was built by the Swedes (who possessed Wismar from 1648 to 1803) after the old arsenal had exploded in 1699. Nowadays the building hosts the town library.

    Location: Ulmenstraße
