1. Our first guided tour takes you through the regional history, excluding the 20th century

“From the Ice Age to the Baltic Resorts: 14,000 years of history in the land by the sea”

Take a romp through the history of Pomerania from the Ice Age to its role as Berlin’s bathtub. Find out why Martin Luther, a Saxon princess, and a Pomeranian duke are depicted together on the Croy Tapestry, and why the Swedes preformed a thorough survey of their Pomeranian province.

Duration: 1.5 h

2. The second guided tour takes you through the history of the region, but without the geological and prehistory

“Hanseatic merchants, Renaissance princes, and landlords: Cultural History from the Middle Ages to the 20th Century”

This tour through Pomeranian history begins with the demise of the Slavic temple at Cape Arkona. From there, you can follow the developing techniques of brick building, the unique Croy Tapestry, and the turmoil of the Thirty Years’ War. You’ll learn why the Pomeranian dialect “Pommersch Platt” is still spoken today in the Brazilian jungle.

Duration: 1.5 h

3. The third tour focuses on Pomerania in the 20th century

“Pomerania on the way to Europe: From the World Wars to the present”

Objects and eyewitness accounts illuminate this epoch of ruptures and continuities – from the World Wars to the enormous numbers of displaced persons and migrants up to the present day. We present interesting facts about population flight and expulsion, about “East Mecklenburg” in the German Democratic Republic, about “West Pomerania” in Poland, and about the Pomeranian Renaissance after German reunification.

Duration: 1 h

4. The fourth tour offers highlights throughout the state’s history

“A gold ring, the Croy Tapestry and the Swedish royal cabinet: highlights of the region’s history”

Here we recount the story behind two kilograms of gold from the era of the Migration Period, the tale of the 4 x 7 m tapestry, and the five Swedish kings and a queen. We’ll also explain why the steamship “Kaiser Wilhelm” proved so shocking to the British in 1897.

Duration: 1 h
