Seaside resorts with bright white resort architecture
Refreshing experiences since 1793
Cheerful, sophisticated and white – the typical face of many seaside resorts along the Baltic coast. Strung together like a pearl necklace, the seaside resorts invite you for a stroll with their white villas, imposing sea bridges and endless boardwalks.
They owe their charm principally to the resort architecture, not an architectural style as such, more an incredibly diverse style of building relative to taste, money and the skill of the builders. However, virtually every single villa has a terrace, veranda or balcony.
Within a short space of time during the 19th century, whole new towns of villas followed the European format and sprang up from the fishing villages, particularly on the islands of Rügen and Usedom. Outstanding examples of Baltic resorts with fashionable resort architecture can be found on the Island of Rügen in the Baltic resorts of Binz and Sellin, on the Island of Usedom in the three imperial resorts of Heringsdorf, Ahlbeck and Bansin and on the Mecklenburg Baltic coast in the Baltic resort of Kühlungsborn.
