Wismar Port (c) Wismar


Wismar is the tourist insider tip in the centre of the German Baltic Coast. Being part of the UNESCO World Heritage this town is a must for each visit to Northern Germany.
Wismar offers various opportunities for being integrated into numerous itineraries. Columbus Cruise Center Wismar (CCCW) possesses several berths directly placed in the city- centre. Hence, Wismar as a location on its own already offers a wide range of attractions, which can be marketed easily to cruise passengers, in particular with regard to the UNESCO World Heritage.
In addition, shore excursions to Hamburg, Lübeck, Warnemünde and Schwerin are ideal opportunities. Finally, even a Berlin trip by coach or by train might be an interesting option. CCCW is the operating company of the cruise terminal Wismar. More than 10 years of experience guarantee a professional and reliable operation. CCCW works hand in hand with the cruise terminal in Bremerhaven (CCCB) at the German North Sea coast.
