Baltic Beaches

Beach chair holidays

Fine white sandy beaches, romantic bays, and crystal-clear water ensure untarnished pleasure when bathing and swimming.

And the sun is also particularly friendly to Mecklenburg-Vorpommern. It is not as hot as on the Mediterranean. The wind, surf, current and salt content are more pleasant on the Baltic Sea than on the Atlantic. And as opposed to the North Sea it does not constantly disappear as here there are no tides.

No wonder that Mecklenburg-Vorpommern has effectively invented bathing. And more than 200 years ago at that. No less a figure than the duke of Mecklenburg bravely went into the refreshing water in the year 1793 in Heiligendamm and established the first seaside resort of continental Europe there. Since then, many more have been added. Strung together like a pearl necklace, the seaside resorts invite you for a stroll with  their white villas, imposing sea bridges and endless boardwalks.

Beach Chair

The wicker beach chair is typical of Mecklenburg. Germany‘s piece of beach furniture  no. 1 was invented 125 years ago in Rostock to protect people against wind and sun. Nowadays the beach chair can be found on the Baltic Sea as well as on the Northern Sea of Germany.
