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.
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.
The holiday resort of Bansin is known for its white, Caribbean-like sand, its unspoilt nature and its beautiful cliff walks. After enjoying the sun, you can stroll through the town, discover the typical architecture of the region or visit the studio of the painter Rolf Werner, who died in 1989 and was inspired by this beautiful region.
The health resorts of Ahlbeck, Heringsdorf and Bansin are also known as the "Kaiserbäder". Many visitors come here every year to enjoy the famous thermal baths and relax in one of the many first-class spas.
