Visitor Centres

The World Heritage List reads like a storybook of human history, including more than 1,100 cultural and/or natural sites of outstanding value to humanity. At the World Heritage Visitor Centres of Stralsund and Wismar you can learn more about why these two cities were included in this illustrious group of World Heritage sites.
