The Kühlungsborn residents pride themselves in having Germany’s longest beach promenade. If you add everything together, it comes to 6 kilometres. This walk is your duty (and pleasure), not only for strolling along, but also for discovering all of Kühlungsborn. The best thing is to go from the new small craft port in the east end, which was dedicated in 2004, to Baltic-Platz in Kühlungsborn West.
Europe’s oldest horse racing track lies between Bad Doberan and Heiligendamm. It went into operation in 1823 and to this day, the Doberan races still have a fixed place in the turf calendar - and are a social event.
Germany’s highest lighthouse does its job on the high 78 meter rise âBuk’ by Barstorf. It is a lighthouse located in the middle of the countryside which provides orientation for the Wismar inlet and a breathtaking panoramic view of the coastline.
Heiligendamm has been considered to be the oldest seaside resort on the Baltic Sea since 1793 when Franz the 1st from Mecklenburg-Schwerin went for a swim at "Heiligen Dammâ. Kühlungsborn’s neighbouring town was a meeting place of the nobility and the financial world at the beginning of the last century. However, it declined after the Second World War. Since 2002, some of the classicistic buildings are once again shining in their former glory.
