Stralsund was a quiet weekend trip out of Berlin. We took a train north and were there in just over 2 hours. We stayed in a nice hostel and wandered about Stralsund for 2 days. The Altstadt is very pretty and there are many red bricked buildings which I am told is typical of the region. The locals here in this region are referred to as Fischkopfs ( fish heads). Fisch Brotchens are very good here! It was very quiet in November but I expect it is a popular little town in the summer months. The highlight attraction here for a rainy day is the Oceanic museum / Aquarium. You can learn many interesting facts about the north see here and they have some excellent life size models of whales and massive sea creatures. There is a preserved whale heart which is massive!
