|The medieval town of Wismar on Germany’s Baltic Sea coast was in the 14th and 15th centuries, an important trading center in the city union of the Hanseatic League. The old quarter with the typical gabled houses and the cobblestone streets is a beautiful piece of history from the heyday of the Hanseatic city. Wismar was declared a UNESCO World Heritage Site in conjunction with Stralsund. The masterpieces of the characteristic brick Gothic include the Fürstenhof, the Archdeaconon and the Marienkirchturm. Two of the excursions on offer lead through Mecklenburg-Vorpommern to the exciting and multi-layered capital of Berlin and the sophisticated, cosmopolitan Hamburg that lies so beautifully on the Elbe and Binnenalster.|

|About 100 years ago, the farming village of Crampas and the fishing village Sassnitz joined together and laid the foundation stone for today’s Sassnitz. The only harbor town on the island of Rügen lies in a terraced valley, which was washed out of the limestone cliffs by the small Steinbach stream. A modern bridge connects the charming old quarter with the picturesque fishing port. On Rügen there are many seaside resorts, which are growing in popularity with the Germans, and the wonderful Jasmund National Park with the spectacular chalk cliffs Königsstuhl.|
|The largest city in Scandinavia has been the capital of Denmark for over 600 years and the residence of the oldest monarchy in the world. It can be described as the most charming metropolis among the Baltic cities. Beautiful parks and gardens, attractive buildings from the 17th and 18th centuries, magnificent castles and the elegant Amalienborg Palace, residence of the reigning King Margaret II, adorn the city, which is criss-crossed by a network of intricate canals. The many cafes and restaurants in the brightly colored townhouses extend to the cobblestone promenade on historic Nyhavn. The atmospheric shore area is a popular meeting place, as is the oldest amusement park in the world – Tivoli.|
