Hanseatic city of Greifswald
Three large church towers greet you from afar, welcoming you to the Hanseatic city of Greifswald. There is plenty to experience here: nature, history, culture and sport - practically right in front of your doorstep. The most famous citizen of this city was Caspar David, famed for his romantic landscape paintings. History plays an important role in the city of Greifswald.
The university is one of the oldest in Europe and you can see the Hanseatic era is architecturally reflected in many of the buildings. It is but a few minutes' walk from the Youth Hostel to the picturesque historic city centre. There is plenty of beautiful architecture to admire along the Brick Gothic architecture route or you may choose instead to reminisce in front of the paintings in the Pommeranian State Museum (Pommersches Landesmuseum). The Hanseatic City of Greifswald is definitely worth a visit.
