Peene River Cruises - towns and tourist attractions
The fishing settlement of Malchin is on the itinerary of the Peene River Cruise. Relics of the Middle Ages, such as parts of the old town walls, will transport you back in time as you stroll through the streets. Take a look at the church of St. John, at a length of 42 metres, and enjoy the breathtaking view from the top of the church tower, at about 67 metres in height. The town hall, with its colourful history, is also worthy of mention.
Demmin is an excellent place for a stroll along the idyllic harbour and a visit to the town museum. Also worthy of mention are the Soviet War Cemetery from 1945 and "Haus Demmin", the ruins of an early German fortress.
If your Peene River Cruise should happen to take you to the market town of Loitz, it's well worth taking a stroll through the old town with its network of streets from the 13th century. You should also definitely have a look at the swing bridge, the oldest hand-operated bridge of its type in Europe.
The picturesque town of Jarmen is full of charm and flair. The wealth of cultural highlights includes the laid-back Old and New Markets and the neo-Gothic church of St. Mary.
Anklam is a genuine Hanseatic town. The church of St. Mary, the Otto Lilienthal Museum and the Powder Tower from the year 1450 all serve to lend the town its particular charm.
