Usedom – a sun-drenched island in the Baltic Sea
Usedom combines the traditional spa resort feel with stunning nature. To be precise, holidaymakers can expect to find 42 kilometres of fine white sandy beaches and beautiful natural landscapes featuring footpaths and cycle paths covering several hundred kilometres.
Usedom in the Baltic Sea is Germany's second largest island and it is treated to a surprising amount of sunshine. Some visitors come to the island to enjoy the sea and sand, whilst others prefer the Achterland outback and choose to explore it on long hikes or bike rides. The historical seaside resorts of Ahlbeck, Heringsdorf and Bansin boast a special charm with their piers and spectacular coastal architecture. There is plenty of accommodation to choose from, including luxury hotels right by the sea, friendly guest houses and barges. Culture vultures are in for a treat, as the island has a calendar packed with classical music, cabaret, literature and theatre.
By the way: Did you know that part of the island of Usedom belongs to Poland? Just take a day trip, preferably by bike, to the neighbouring country and visit, for example, the popular town of Swinemüde with its wide sandy beaches.
