11th Winter Wicker Beach Chair Festival

January might not seem the best time to be going on a seaside holiday, but in Zinnowitz on Usedom island it's when the Winter Wicker Beach Chair Festival heralds the start of the tourism season. In this often gloomy month, food & drink from the region, sporting events and lots of other highlights offer a taste of the summer to come. Those who prefer things warmer, should hold on until later in the year to visit the seaside resort of Heringsdorf or one of the many other spa resorts on the island.
