Northern German romantic period route - Seaside resort of Lubmin - The coast as seen by Friedrich
The more than 200 meter long pier that extends all the way to the bay is the landmark of the seaside resort of Lubmin. Lubmin is the only seaside resort in the Bay of Greifswald and it is a popular holiday destination for families. In the past, most of the people who lived here were farmers, because there was not enough of a bay here to set up a fishery on the beach. In 1801, Caspar David Friedrich travelled to Rügen Island for the first time. In his picture “Blick von der Südküste Rügens” (view from the southern coast of Rügen) he not only mentioned the towns of Wusterhusen and Wolgast and Ruden Island, but also the Prussian side, thus deliberately differentiating between Prussia and Swedish Pomerania. The seaside resort of Lubmin is not mentioned by name, even though it was already a place on the map. The reason was probably that Lubmin and Wusterhusen were in the same line of sight from his perspective.
