And you might be even more interested to know that this laid-back port is distinctive enough to have been designated a UNESCO World Heritage site.

This bridge with a sculpture of a pig rolling around in apparent glee is said to bring good luck if you give it a rub. Also note that Wismar is close to several other quaint northern German towns, as well as gorgeous Schwerin Castle.

Add in a side of quaint churches, artists’ workshops and fresh local foods, and you’ve got quite a treat. Stop at Bornholm’s friendly welcome center if you want recommendations from locals.
