Rügen, Usedom, Hiddensee & Co.

Untamed beaches, weather-beaten woods and fine, sandy beaches

As different as Mecklenburg-Vorpommern's islands may be, each still has its own inimitable beauty, miles of endless beaches and many hours of sunshine.

Crowds throng through the fashionable Baltic resorts and long, white sandy beaches on Germany's largest island and the sunny Island of Usedom in the summer. On the car-free Island of Hiddensee near Rügen or on the Island of Rügen before the gateway to Wismar, life is a little quieter. With its unspoiled natural surroundings, the peninsula of Fischland-Darß-Zingst is not only a popular spot for artists.
