Boltenhagen is especially famous with families for its shallow beaches combined with a superb water quality.
A marina with fishing harbour connects to the resort at its easternmost end, offering hotels and private beaches overlooking the vast Wohlenberger Wiek, a shallow bay in between Boltenhagen and Wismar.
West of the town and close to the seaside lies the picturesque little castle of Gross-Schwansee, recently refurbished and converted into a luxury hotel. South of it, Bothmer Mansion, a remarkable Tudor-style manor house in the nearby village of Klütz can be visited.
Even historically Boltenhagen has been a popular holiday resort in Eastern Germany as being the second town, where bathing wagons have been placed. Today the town offers nearly 10.000 beds, also because of health reasons, the town counts as a well known and highly recommended holiday resort.
The art historian Wilhelm Titel was born in Boltenhagen.
