Boasting endless stretches of white sandy beaches, salt marshes, rugged cliffs and pine forests, Hiddensee is a happy place for many. There are also art galleries, museums, lectures and concerts galore on this island in the Baltic Sea.

Covering just under 19 square kilometres, Hiddensee is located just off the west coast of Rügen in the Baltic Sea. Affectionately known as 'Söte Länneken' (sweet little land), this island's stunning and varied natural landscape in the Western Pomerania Lagoon Area National Park doesn't fail to impress visitors. No end of writers and artists have been seeking inspiration on the island for decades. Hiddensee has built up a reputation as a cultural hotspot thanks to all the events going on. Families are free to explore the island on foot, by bike or on horseback. Sea buckthorn is a local delicacy that grows all over Hiddensee and tastes delicious in cakes or juice drinks.
