You might be interested to know that Wismar was part of Germany's Hanseatic League in the 1400s. 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. Stroll the cobblestone streets of the Old Town to visit several noteworthy churches and inviting little shops. and then see if you can find the Schweinsbruke. 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.
