Town hall of Greifswald.


Greifswald is a charming Hanseatic port that was spared destruction in WWII. Established in 1456, the University of Greifswald is the fourth oldest in Germany, and one in four of the town's residents is a student. Since 2011, Russian gas reaches Western Europe through the Nord Stream offshore pipeline running from Vyborg to Greifswald.
