Wolgast
The Essential
The birthplace of Romantic painter Philipp Otto Runge boasts most notably a parish church built in 1370 and with an octagonal bell tower. The austere exterior contrasts with its extravagantly decorated interior: wall paintings from the 15C and 16C and a danse macabre cycle painted around 1700 by Caspar Sigmund Köppe based on a woodcut by Hans Holbein the Younger.
