Schleswig-Holstein and the Baltic Coast Sights

Alter Markt (Old Market Square)

Updated 11/13/2013

Fodor's Review

The Alter Markt has the best local architecture, ranging from Gothic to Renaissance to baroque. Most homes belonged to rich merchants, notably the late-Gothic Wulflamhaus, with 17 ornate, steeply stepped gables. Stralsund's architectural masterpiece, however, is the 14th-century Rathaus, considered by many to be the finest secular example of redbrick Gothic. The Rathaus is a mirror image of the a similar building in L├╝beck, Stralsund's main rival in the Hanseatic League
