Germany's islands from A to Z

Usedom: Beach – nature – light

42 km of fine white sandy beach, five piers, uniquely preserved spa architecture and untouched natural landscapes with 200 km of cycle paths and 400 km of hiking trails await you!

The distinctive mix of beach, nature and light make a holiday on Germany's second largest island, Usedom, in the north-east of the Federal state of Mecklenburg-Vorpommern the most beautiful time of the year.

Coastal resorts with charming spa architecture

For some, it's all about the coast and the sea, while others love the Usedom hinterlands, also known as the "Achterland", which they discover on extended hikes or on a bike. Many are simply seeking a break in the middle of nature and are enchanted by the island's maritime flair. Here, the old resorts have their own special charm, particularly the historic coastal resorts of Ahlbeck, Heringsdorf and Bansin. With their piers and the inimitable spa architecture, they take each guest on a journey back to the beginnings of bathing culture in the 19th century.

Overnight stays ranging from close to nature through to luxurious

On Usedom, you feel like you've arrived: as a guest in one of the starred hotels right by the sea, in a lovely holiday home or in a guest house when you feel right at home. Whether it's a grand villa, a farmhouse or a house boat, there are a wide variety of extraordinary holidays to be had on Germany's sunny island of Usedom.

Culture with maritime flair

Culture-loving guests on Usedom really get their money's worth too: from classical music at the seaside to the cabaret festival, from the Usedom Literary Festival through the Usedom Music Festival to the Vineta festival performances, the events calendar is chock-full. The "Grand Schlemm" and the Usedom herring weeks in the spring or the game weeks in the autumn promise particular culinary delights.
