The pier is located in Kühlungsborn Ost, an extension of "Strandstraße" - a popular shopping street for tourists and locals.
The panoramic pier was inaugurated on 3rd October 1991 in the presence of over 3000 people. It is the first pier in Mecklenburg-Vorpommern to be completed after reunification. With a length of 240 metres, the entire lake side of Kühlungsborn and its surroundings can be seen. Therefore the pier is one of the most popular sights in the Baltic seaside resort. In addition, the pier is a popular place for anglers.
