Anklam Panorama ©Eric Eßlinger,


Discover the sunny foothills of the Baltic Sea island of Usedom and visit the Hanseatic city of Anklam in the heart of the impressive river landscape of the river Peene. Travel back in time to a city that received city rights in 1264 and joined the mighty Hanseatic League in 1283. Even today, the culture of the Middle Ages characterizes the picturesque silhouette of the city. From afar St. Nicholas‘ Church and St. Mary‘s Church are an impressive invitation to all travellers to stop by and discover the city as well as the unique cultural heritage of European Brick Gothic for themselves. In a charmingly cosmopolitan manner Anklam presents itself as “Lilienthalstadt” (Lilienthal city), a reference to its most famous son: the humanist, engineer and inventor of human flight – Otto Lilienthal. Experience the award-winning exhibition of the Otto-Lilienthal-Museum, explore the ancient river landscape of the river Peene – home of white-tailed eagles, beavers and otters. Take a canoe trip, a solar-boat tour or go on a guided moor hike into the fenland of the Peene Valley. The river Peene, the so-called Amazon of the North – awaits you. In the evening you may enjoy local fish specialties and wine in Anklam – a city with Hanseatic flair.
