The Hanseatic City of Stralsund, ennobled as UNESCO world heritage, is a highlight in northern Germany through its history, the unique situation by the sea and the enormous number of historical buildings. Its modern touristic infrastructure meets all the wishes and demands of travelling groups and individual tourists.
As a business location, Stralsund is characterized by the three Ts - tradition, tourism and technology. Growing numbers of innovative service and high-tech companies are setting up in the wake of long-established firms.
