Germany is rich in history and full of natural beauty. From the north, with its beautiful beaches of the North and Baltic Seas, to the south, a nature and hiking paradise with a panoramic view of the Alps, Germany offers its visitors an incomparable diversity. Between these two natural contrasts lie many trendy, culturally rich metropolises such as the port city of Hamburg and Berlin, one of the hippest capitals in Europe. Munich, located in the south, is known worldwide for its Oktoberfest, which takes place once a year.
The island of Usedom, in the far north-east of the country, is like a little paradise. It is located in one of the warmest regions of Germany and offers its inhabitants almost 2,000 hours of sunshine a year. There are beautiful white sandy beaches and a wide range of water sports. Behind the seaside resorts lies a hinterland where nature has been preserved. With its deep green forests, the waters, with its amazing flora and fauna and the typical fishing villages, the island of Usedom promises an unforgettable stay.
Usedom also has a lot to offer for history buffs! In Peenemünde you can visit the largest submarine museum in the world, where the Soviet mastodon U-461 floats peacefully in the harbour. A unique and fascinating visit not to be missed! There is also the Historical-Technical Museum, where the remains of the first space rocket are on display. Discover this place steeped in history without any fuss.
There are also many water sports in the region.
We recommend a boat trip to go fishing, admire the local fauna or simply relax in an exceptional setting.
Finally, young and old can marvel at the magical world of Gulliver, which is only a few kilometres away from Bansin. Here you can enter a 36-metre-long statue of the famous character by Jonathan Swift.
The island of Usedom, with its incomparable beauty, offers much for its visitors. Friends of architecture and photography will be impressed by the typical imperial villas. In the east of the island, the landscape is characterised by hills up to 70 metres high and a steep coast almost 10 kilometres long. A delight for hikers and sports enthusiasts.
Usedom has long been a popular destination for artists in search of inspiration. Today, the region offers culture lovers a packed calendar of events throughout the year, including cabaret, literature, theatre and classical music.
The island is also known for its many lakes, which can be reached via marked forest paths. Romantics walking along the lakes in the evening can enjoy a breathtaking sunset!
The seaside resort of Ahlbeck is one of the most popular destinations on the Baltic Sea. The 70-metre wide beach and the pleasant temperatures during most of the year provide the perfect setting for those who like to walk barefoot in the sand. The oldest pier in Germany, dating back to 1898, can be reached on the way there. During a walk, you can marvel at the magnificent villas for which the town is famous while enjoying a delicious ice cream.
From Ahlbeck, which is considered one of the most elegant seaside resorts on the island of Usedom, you can also cross the border into Poland on a beautiful walk through the forest.
Heringsdorf is one of Germany's best-known seaside resorts. This is partly due to the town's rich history as an imperial spa, with magnificently decorated old houses and villas, many of which were built for the German imperial family and the nobility of the time. In the town you can visit Villa Oppenheim, where members of the German royal family lived for centuries. Heringsdorf is also home to Germany's longest pier. Along the 508-metre stretch, you can enjoy the beautiful coastline from the pier, or relax on the terrace of one of the many cafés.
La station balnéaire de Bansin est connue pour son sable blanc, rappelant étrangement celui des Caraïbes, mais aussi pour sa nature préservée et ses promenades sur les falaises. Après avoir profité du soleil, vous pourrez vous promener en ville, découvrir l’architecture typique de la région ou encore visiter le studio de l’artiste peintre Rolf Werner, décédé en 1989, qui a puisé son inspiration dans cette magnifique région.
Les stations d’Ahlbeck, Heringsdorf et Bansin sont également surnommées "Kaiserbäder" ("bains de l’empereur"). De nombreux visiteurs s’y déplacent chaque année pour profiter de ses célèbres thermes et se détendre dans l’un des nombreux spas de luxe que compte la région.
