The town of Usedom is an extremely charming town in the south of the Island of Usedom. It is very rich in history. The Anklamer Tor with the Heimatstube, the St. Mary's Church, the town hall, the castle hill invite our guests to stay.

The only German town on the Island of Usedom was granted Lübisches Stadtrecht in 1298. Small and steeped in history, this is how Usedom presents itself on an isthmus in the southeast of the island. Once upon a time, this place on Lake Usedom was an outstanding trading and crafts center and ducal residence: from 1153/55 to 1307/09, it was also a monastery and at times a bishop's seat; from the end of the 12th to the 15th century, it was a mint.
Usedom had a town wall and three town gates. Of these, the Anklamer Tor, a beautifully structured brick building, has been preserved. Centuries ago, the town had five churches and chapels, but today only the imposing Marienkirche (St. Mary's Church) stands out in the surroundings. Via one of the renovated old town streets you will reach the Schlossberg, where a granite cross reminds of the Christianization.
The prettily decorated houses, nice cafes and small stores in the town are a feast for the eyes.
Unlike in the old days, the town today extends beyond its city walls to include the Usedomer Winkel, the southern tip of the island. In total, 13 districts belong to the town of Usedom. Guests who love peace, seclusion and nature will get their money's worth here in the beautiful Achterland. When exploring the corner of Usedom, notable sights include the church in Mönchow, the remains of the railroad lift bridge and a new marina for water sports enthusiasts in Karnin, as well as the island's only country dairy in Welzin.
One of the newest attractions in the town of Usedom is TRAKTOREN WELT USEDOM, built in 2015. The tractor museum offers a 100-year cross-section of German tractor history from East and West on an exhibition area of about 7500 m².
