Even during a stroll through the city or a guided tour through the alleys of Stralsund, one recognizes the versatility of the "city by the sea". The UNESCO World Heritage city can score with many architectural highlights, such as the Knieper and Kütertor, or impress with the historic brick giants St. Nikolai, St. Marien and St. Jakobi. If you want to take a look at the harbor panorama of the Hanseatic city, you can't miss the modern Ozeaneum: it offers a wave of worth-knowing information for every generation to touch, participate in, and a lot of sea.
