Cruise shipping destination at the Baltic Sea

When Albert Ballin came up with the idea of organizing the first cruise to the Mediterranean in 1891 no one guessed that, more than a hundred years later, this would become an up-to-date trend in tourism. Today travelling in these floating luxury hotels has long since become a real alternative to holidays at the beach and in the mountains for many guests.

When choosing original and attractive travel destinations, the venerable Hanseatic City of Wismar is an ideal attraction for tourists from all over the world. The sea port with its cruise liner terminal is very close to the historical Old Town. Passengers don't have to walk far to explore the sights from the age of Gothic brick architecture and the Swedish occupation which have made Wismar a UNESCO world heritage site.

Wismar is also a good starting point for day trips thanks to its excellent motorway connections. Thus it is possible to organize an exciting and varied itinerary also in the Baltic, the third-largest cruise market in the world. It can't always be the Mediterranean after all.
