One of the landmarks is the 80 meter high tower of the Marienkirche. The church itself was damaged during World War II and completely destroyed in 1960:

And since Wismar is a port town, you can imagine that we couldn’t stay away from the harbor. Since evening was approaching and it was quite misty, I converted these pictures to b&w:

    Love the B&W industrial pictures. Then again, I’m a bit of a sucker for industrial pictures 🙂 . They used to think windmills were ugly!

    Old industrial houses out of use are often used for art and installations and other cultural thing such as beerplaces and sometimes restaurants in the Germany in the present time. In the former DDR and in the Ruhr area and many other places
