Island of Usedom

The sunny Island of Usedom has been famous for its pleasurable bathing culture by the Baltic Sea since time immemorial. But nature- and culture lovers, water enthusiasts and day trippers are also just as well catered for.

They line up along the island's beaches like a string of pearls: the seaside resorts on Usedom, each more beautiful than the next. Behind a shady forest, it soon becomes clear what makes the island a holiday paradise. The nobility and aristocracy warmed to the idea of a summer health resort on the narrow land washed by the Baltic Sea and the Achterwasser at the end of the last century. Ahlbeck, Heringsdorf and Bansin even welcomed Wilhelm II on occasions, which is why they are still considered "imperial resorts" today.

Comfortable hotels and cosy B&Bs are hiding behind the lovingly restored façades. Modern spa facilities have been added, such as the Baltic Spa in Heringsdorf – bathing facilities with numerous therapeutic amenities. Active recreation is promised by the cycle path which runs parallel to the beach as well as the green hinterland interwoven with the blue lakes.
