Stralsund – Rich history and peaceful beaches
Stralsund is not only the "gateway" to Rügen Island, but also a popular vacation destination in its own right with a historic, impressive city center, lively harbor and charming beaches. The Rügen Bridge and Rügen Causeway span the 3 km wide Strela Sound and connect the Hanseatic City of Stralsund to the tourist island of Rügen. Explore Stralsund's picturesque historic city center – a UNESCO World Heritage Site featuring over 500 listed buildings. Stride by the elaborate facades to the Old Market Square with St. Nicholas's Church, which was built in 1270. Its interior contains a masterfully designed wooden altar and twelve-meter-high shrine adorned by 100 hand-carved sculptures. Next to the church stands the Town Hall, an imposing city landmark and a masterpiece of Brick Gothic architecture. In the harbor, pleasure boats bob calmly as they wait to take you on exciting cruises. Admire the fine sand and waves from colorful "Strandkorb" beach chairs on the Strela Sound. When you stay at IntercityHotel Stralsund near the main train station, the harbor and the old town are only a short walk away.
