Every year tourists from Germany and abroad enjoy the sun on the Baltic Sea coast, do water sports or simply relax in the unspoilt nature. The Baltic Sea stretches from Flensburg in the west, borders Sweden and Finland in the north on the Gulf of Bothnia and reaches as far as St. Petersburg in the east. There are a total of nine countries on the Baltic Sea. One of them is Germany.

The German Baltic Sea and its islands On the German Baltic Sea coast you can have a wonderful holiday. Long sandy beaches invite you to sunbathe and go for a walk, you can swim or do other water sports in the cool waters of the sea and many of the towns along the coast enchant you with their architecture and their varied inner cities. The Baltic Sea islands Fehmarn, Rügen and Usedom are also particularly worth seeing.

The largest of the three islands is Rügen. With its chalk cliffs, untouched nature, national parks and the white villas of Binz, Rügen is definitely worth a visit. People of all ages feel comfortable on Rügen. The island of Usedom, whose eastern part belongs to Poland, is also known as the sun island. And this name does not come from nothing. Because Usedom is considered the sunniest region in Germany.

On Usedom there are not only miles of sandy beaches, but also many parks, inland lakes and seawater baths. On Usedom, tourists can easily leave the stress of everyday life behind them. The island, or rather the peninsula of Fehmarn, is located on the Lübeck Bay and is connected to the mainland via the Fehmarnsund Bridge. This makes the journey to this Baltic Sea island particularly easy. On Fehmarn, water sports friends get their money's worth. Whether sailing or surfing, the good weather conditions on Fehmarn make it possible.

The German Baltic Sea coast But it is not only the German Baltic Sea islands where you can have a wonderful holiday. Also seaside resorts like Timmendorfer Strand, Kühlungsborn, Boltenhagen, Fisch-Darß-Zingst or Heiligendamm are very popular with tourists. In these places you can look out over the sometimes calm and sometimes wild Baltic Sea in a wicker beach chair, enjoy delicious fish specialities or end the day in one of the many restaurants or bars.
