World Heritage Exhibition Stralsund

??? absaetzeOben[1]/titel ???

As historical as a term like ‘heritage’ might sound, thanks to modern technology, heritage is right at your fingertips in the Stralsund World Heritage exhibition. Whether with globes, photo exhibitions, animations, films, illuminated showcases or media tables – you can experience World Heritage in a lively and entertaining way.

One of the reasons that the historic centre of Stralsund was inscribed on the UNESCO World Heritage List was for its virtually unchanged preserved medieval town plan. Our popular animated film ‘Why World Heritage?’ shows the town plan over the course of time and tells tells stories of the city's past.

Our younger visitors can enjoy and exciting game of treasure hunt in a large outdoor sandbox. Armed with brushes and shovels, these ‘young archaeologists’ go in the search of the buried city of Stralsund.

Whether before or after a long stroll through town, a visit to the World Heritage exhibition will complete the picture of Stralsund. Anyone who drops in to the centre for a half hour will come away with a lot more knowledge of this lovely Hanseatic city.
