I think cooling Born impresses with its complete package: the beautiful beach, the promenade and resort architecture. It lend themselves to cycling to the island Pöoel or towards Heiligendamm. An ideal place for a Baltic vacation

Born cooling in the summer, which is a mild breeze at sea, secluded beach chair atmosphere and evening walks on the beach and promenade, which can be true every holiday dreams. These (from www.kuehlungsborn.de) is the ride on the Molli, the Mecklenburg Bäderbahn that a start point and an additional breakpoint in New York City has (www.molli-bahn.de). The tour takes about Heiligendamm to Bad Doberan. Especially the nearly 3 km long promenade between cooling Born East and West. Whether at the beach, on the boardwalk or along the parallel to Ostseeallee, each has its own charm and reflects what cooling Born et special. At the end of the promenade in New York City east to reach the marina, with great flair and our favorite restaurant, the frequent sea (www.vielmeer.de). Something more extended trips on foot or by bike, run in the cooling inland, with great views of the landscape, the Baltic Sea and in good weather to Denmark. A visit to the lighthouse in Bastorf far from cooling Born worth it.

    Doberan Cathedral

    The Doberaner Münster, dedicated in 1368, is one of the most impressive examples of North German brick architecture. It was originally the first abbey in Mecklenburg, founded in 1171, and was also used as the burial site for the regional rulers. Of special importance are architecture and furnishings in the Minster. The interior was mostly spared the turmoils and ravages of war. No other Cistercian abbey in Europe can lay claim to such a large amount of original interior still intact. Among the treasures are the main altar which is the oldest wing-altar in art history, the monumental cross altar and the sculpted tomb of Danish Queen Margarete Sambiria.

Travel Insider Tips for Kuhlungsborn

Kühlungsborn Overview

Kühlungsborn is Seebad (seaside resort) town in the district of Bad Doberan (Bad Doberan vacation rentals | Bad Doberan travel guide), in Mecklenburg-Vorpommern, Germany. It is situated on the Baltic Sea coast, 11 km northwest of Bad Doberan, and 25 km northwest of Rostock (Rostock vacation rentals | Rostock travel guide). The town has a long beach, many hotels, a long promenade and a marina. It is the largest seaside spa town in Mecklenburg.

Kühlungsborn is a unique mixture of past and present. Old, dilapidated hotels stand next to recent renovations. The charm of this turn of the (last) century tourist spot, however, remains. Whilst a popular mode of transport in the area is the bicycle, it is actually quite difficult to ride in a straight line here as what is available, visually, is very distracting. If the weather is (reasonably) kind, nothing can beat hiring one of the traditional Strandkorb on the beach.

Things to See in Kühlungsborn

Dampf- Schmalspurbahn-the extension to the head and Bruns Arendsee and reconstruction of the inner extensions of the wagons

Frühgotische Pfarr-Kirche-The nave consists of boulders, the vaults, frames, windows and portals brick

The longest German Baltic Sea - beach promenade completed in 2007

More about the History of Kuhlungsborn

The city of Kühlungsborn was created on 1 April 1938 when it was combined with Arendsee, Orte Fulgen, and Brunshaupten. Since it is right on the water, the town started out as a fishing and port town.

In modern times, Kühlungsborn remains a community with no high buildings, because there was no house to be built higher than the highest trees are grow. Since the mid-1990s the city has once again become a very popular year-round destination for the holiday season

Located less than 20 miles from the much larger city of Rostock, Kuehlungsborn is a seaside resort on the Baltic Sea. It is actually the largest seaside town in Mecklenburg and one of the oldest seaside resorts established in Germany, dating from the 1860s. To help preserve Kuehlungsborn's small-town feel, no buildings can be built to be taller than the town's tallest tree. Although it is clear that the town's greatest attraction is its beach, there is an array of cultural sites that may draw you away from the sand. The historic narrow-gauge Molli steam railway was built in 1886, and today it is very popular with tourists who wish to see the area by rail. St. John's Church, which was begun in the 1200s, will satisfy your taste for medieval church architecture. If you are more interested in the Cold War era than the Middle Ages, check out the Baltic Sea watchtower, which was used by the East Germans to patrol escapes made via the water. Now back to the beach... The Kuehlungsborn Pier runs 200 yards out into the Baltic and is worth a stroll, as is the beach promenade, which is 100 yards wide at this point on the coast. Once you have had your fill of sun and sand, indulge in a very different culture by taking a day trip to either Rostock (20 miles) or Wismar (25 miles).
