Heiligendamm has been Germany’s most elegant seaside resort since its foundation in 1793. It is called White Town by the Sea because of its impressive classicist white buildings, six of which are now the Grand Hotel Heiligendamm.

The peninsula Wustrow adjacent to the town of Rerik is approximately 1 km across and 5 km long. It had been agriculturally used until it was bought by the German Armed Forces in 1933. After WWII it served as a Russian outpost during the Cold War. In 1998 fund managers Fundus bought Wustrow intending to establish another seaside resort including hotels, a marina and a golf course. Since 2004 the peninsula has been closed to the public, the biggest part of it is a nature resort.
Kühlungsborn is the largest seaside spa town in Mecklenburg. There is an elongate beach and promenade and a marina with many restaurants.
Rerik is situated on the Baltic Sea coast about 4 km north of the airfield. The town's location is special because on one side there is the lagoon Salzhaff and on the other the Baltic Sea. There is a marina at the lagoon side of the town and 170 m pier at the Baltic Sea beach. The St. Johannes Church was built in the 12th century.
The biggest city in Mecklenburg-Vorpommern is the Hanseatic city Rostock which is crossed by the river Warnow.
