The changing scenic charm that has always emanated from Stralsund's external appearance still reveals itself to today's visitors in a unique way. However, the city owes this not only to its privileged location on the waterfront, but also to its garden culture, which has grown over the centuries and makes masterful use of the landscape. The city ponds, which were artificially created by excavating swamps when the defensive fortifications were extended in the 13th century, and the promenade ring surrounding Stralsund's old town still impressively mark the medieval boundary between the densely built-up city and the open countryside. This green area, which shapes the cityscape, can be traced back to the horticultural design of the fortifications according to plans by the Royal Prussian court garden director Ferdinand Jühlke (1815-1893) at the end of the 19th century.

In harmony with the urban environment of the old town, Stralsund's ramparts are an important testimony to fortress construction and garden art, which, following the inclusion of the old towns of Wismar and Stralsund on the UNESCO World Heritage List in 2002, can now also be considered a World Heritage Site.

The garden history tour leads from the Schill monument across the bastions along the Knieperteich pond.
