Tour Details

Wismar is located along the Baltic Sea, this port and Hanseatic city is brimming with charm, well-preserved medieval buildings and a UNESCO World Heritage Site designation.

Founded in 1229, Wismar was one of the first cities established in Mecklenburg. It soon became a thriving center of trade, with merchants, barrel makers, sailors, fishermen, guild-members and more flocking to its shores. Pirates were in abundance too, including Germany's most famous pirate, Klaus Stoertebecker. A privateer with the Victual Brothers, he lived there for a time and was rumored to have been born there.

Your expedition into all things Wismar begins as you leave the town of Warnemunde for a scenic drive to the heart of this enchanting city. Once in Wismar you will pass along cobbled streets and see the Classic Rathaus (Town Hall), Water Tower, and the historic drainage system, as well as the merchant houses. Beer drinkers will rejoice with a glass of "Mumme", a widely acclaimed strong dark beer. During the Hanseatic period the citizens drank Mumme, and produced 400,000 hector liters of beer annually for consumption and shipping along well-worn trade routes to distant lands.

Enjoy a beer tasting and a traditional German pretzel snack within the "Brauerei am Lohberg", a nostalgic brewery and pub that started in the Middle Ages, where you will also have the chance to sample a less strong but still tasty version of the medieval Mumme beer.

Discover this Baltic beauty for yourself by booking this 5-hour tour of Wismar now.

Reviewer: Carol
We had a private tour, as only my husband and I signed up after we found out our first choice was no longer available. We took The autobon at rates of speed higher than you can take on the US highways. Wismar was adorable, with its Dutch Renaissance house fronts. Our tour guide with SEG, Jenns, I think, was knowledgeable and friendly, and we learned a lot about East German history. We had some free time at the pier, where I recommend you plan a lunch of fish sandwich which you purchase fresh off the boat and they will cook it for you. The local beer place has been open. continuously sice the Middle Ages—amazing! If you enjoy kirsch or other fruit or whiskey distillates, ask to taste some 3.5 euros a taste—pretty pricey. But, we walked away with some neat finds. Pear, cherry, raspberry, and some sort of mixed fruit liquors distilled by this brewing company.
