Heiligendamm

Heiligendamm is a German seaside resort, founded in 1793. The small cluster of structures which still survive are reminders of the glory days of days gone by when this part of the Baltic Sea was one of the playgrounds of Europe’s aristocracy. It is the oldest seaside spa in Germany. Heiligendamm is part of the town Bad Doberan in the state of Mecklenburg-Vorpommern. Due to the classicist white buildings lining the beach promenade, the town is also known as the “White Town by the Sea” (German: Die weiße Stadt am Meer). Today, the area by the sea is occupied by a five-star hotel. A narrow-gauge steam railway, known as the “Molli”, links Heiligendamm with Kühlungsborn and Bad Doberan.
