Default Re: Picture Book...Germany's Far North-East and North Poland

Putgarten and Kap Arkona at the very northern Tip of Ruegen turn out a massive Tourist-Circus with hectares of coach-parking and the usual generic fluff...drive-through and turn south instead.

Views across the bays from Hoch Hilger near Neuenkirchen












Stoertebecker Brewery, Stralsund...just the regional brewery, nothing fancy. YES, everything works and is used in production every day.

It only takes ONE tasting-tray...no shotglass-crap here, either....












Time for some of their local tucker, too...





Wasn't that thing bent the other way just before?
Damn, time to quit, methinks....

Stralsund...Germany's Baltic Pearl


What's Sausage + Sauerkraut to Germany's South...is Currywurst + Pommes to the North.
If you ever find out what's really in it...tell me!
How that mush out of some sliced up banger with curried tomato-sauce topped by limp, soaking fries can be so addictive, I've got no idea.
BUT IT IS!

They got shops everywhere selling nothing else but...like this one just outside Berlin's Tegel Airport Arrivals Hall.





Lots of this along the way to the northern coast...no signs, no gates, bring your dirt-squirter and have fun.

That near-island in the coastal strip is the old, historic city of Stralsund, a former trading and fishing town being granted city-rights 800years ago.
https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Stralsund

Many of the old things escaped the neglect under the East German Communist regime and have been freshened-up and renovated since re-unification, but there are also many DDR/GDR-relicts around which sometimes makes for a somewhat curious mix.

Breckie on the go? A Wiener on a bun and a pot of coffee...






















Late lunch anyone?






From junkyard to collectable....






And what looks like a somewhat neglected city-park on the outskirts...





...turns out the former main city cemetery with some tucked away corners revealing graves and family vaults of some of the rich trading families.

Polish Baltic Coast...hmm-ya!


Map https://bit.ly/3cd2uF4





Going west-to-east along the Polish coast, Swinemuende is still on the mainly German island of Usedom, if by a poofteenth.
The river Swine enters the Baltic Sea just a few k's to the east, making for the name of Swine + Muende (mouth).
Wiki: https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/%C5%9Awinouj%C5%9Bcie


One of the Swinemuende signature spots...





...was sadly under re-construction



















...while the waterfront was jampacked with traders hustling China-plastic-crap + tinsel to mainly German tourists, a picture that sadly extended into EVERY nook and cranny of the entire Polish Baltic seaside.






The other side of the harbour was reached by route93, the major international transit route serviced by 2 ferries running ping-pong across the river Swine.
Great entertainment here by an extended family of porkers excitedly grunting and running riot among the German BMWs and Audis and the "Eastern-block" Tatra and vintage Mercedes and Hanomag trucks lined up for the next sailing...








The historic Kohlberg/ polish: Kolobrzeg Lighthouse
Another river entering the Baltic Sea, another ancient coastal trading place, another of the old Hanse-cities













World Premiere: the Givi Wicker!
