a journey through the ages

The towns along the Baltic Sea coast offer centuries of ancient history which has been fashionably reworked. You suddenly feel very close to the Middle Ages. You can follow the route of ancient merchants of the Hanse or reside like the Dukes used to do. Visit imposing sites which became treasures of the UNESCO World heritage and become enchanted by the charm of historically grown towns.
