Mühlenstraße in Stralsund is a historic and picturesque street in the old town, running westwards from the Alter Markt (Old Market) and continuing southwards in an arc beyond the Panorama. Mühlenstraße is known for its well-preserved medieval architecture and charm. The old towns of Stralsund and Wismar (both in Mecklenburg-Western Pomerania) were added to the UNESCO World Heritage List in 2002 as city ensembles.
Gabled houses and brick Gothic architecture
Our panoramic view begins on the right side with four buildings still standing on the Alter Markt.
On the corner of Knieperstraße (on the right of the panorama) we find a building that was remodelled in 1866 in the neo-Renaissance style and raised by one storey. The corner of the building is adorned with a polygonal bay window.
Next on the left is the Wuflamhaus with the address Alter Markt 5, which was commissioned before 1358 by Bertram Wulflam, who later became mayor of Stralsund – directly opposite Stralsund Town Hall. The magnificent, outstanding building has a façade typical of the North German Brick Gothic style and is considered one of the best-preserved residential buildings of the late Gothic period in Northern Germany. Inside, wall paintings from the 15th century have been preserved. The building also has a half-timbered Kemlade at the back.
