The city harbour on the banks of the Warnow with its museum and sailing harbour is a popular promenade with restaurants, shopping facilities and large stores. Until the opening of the seaport in 1960, the entire cargo handling was concentrated here.
You can enjoy the best view of the city harbour from the "Kanonsberg" near the "Fischerbastion".
This used to be a strategically important defence point for the port entrance. Three old guns remind of it.
