Visit the Baltic coast in Mecklenburg-Vorpommern and you'll be welcomed by breathtaking natural, cultural and historical attractions.

It's true that the Baltic Sea offers a tideless welcome to its visitors, but it makes up for it with the fascinating natural spectacles all year round. In the summer, the sun sinks like a flaming ball of fire and on stormy days, the Baltic Sea is transformed into a savage, thunderous power. But it's not just the Baltic Sea that makes the almost 1,900-kilometre-long coastline of Mecklenburg-Vorpommern so incredibly varied, it is also the sandy beaches and steep cliffs, islands and bays, Bodden and mud flats.
And the coastal towns of the state are just as diverse. Fashionable seaside resorts with their bright white resort architecture, tranquil fishing villages with thatched roofs or Hanseatic towns steeped in history with warehouses, churches and trading houses made of brick complete the visage of the Baltic Sea coast.
