Anklam Panorama ©Eric Eßlinger,


The first mention of the Hanseatic city of Anklam was in 1242. Since then a lot has happened in the birthplace of famous aviation pioneer Otto Lilienthal. In 1283, the city of Anklam joined the Hanseatic League. Back then, the Hanseatic City of Anklam was mainly known for their fishing but now she is much more. The Otto-Lilienthal-Museum, the “Museum Am Steintor”, the newly opened Hanseatic swimming bath, the monument of Lilienthal or the “Nikolaikirche” (former the church of St. Nicholas) are just a few of the places you can visit in Anklam. The breathtaking and unique postcard-like view of the river Peene and the surrounding marshes invites every lover of nature. All of this and more you can experience in the Hanseatic city of Anklam.
