After 1990, the port of Barth has developed into a significant center for maritime tourism in the region.
Sailors and water sports enthusiasts from all over Germany and many parts of Europe come to the area to enjoy the charming maritime interplay of the Baltic Sea and the Bodden waters. The Barth harbor has modern berths.
