Germany’s Baltic Sea | The Baltic Sea Coast of Germany is a popular vacation region – among Germans. International tourists are rare or they are Swedish and drunk. Germany’s Baltic Sea Coast is located in the northern federal states of Mecklenburg-Western Pomerania and Schleswig-Holstein. Besides the obvious draw of a beach destination, many of the old coastal cities bear witness to a former wealth: The Hanseatic League (Hanse). The Hanseatic League was a powerful economic and defensive alliance in the middle ages that left a great cultural and architectural heritage. It is especially renowned for its red brick gothic monuments, such as St. Nikolai and the city hall of Stralsund and the Holsten Gate of Lübeck.
Germany’s Baltic Sea Coast offers a variety of sights in particular on the islands of Rügen and Usedom as well as in Stralsund, Lübeck, Rostock and Wismar. Tourists interested in culture and nature are provided with lots of opportunities: Brick Gothic churches and reed covered houses, the Chalk Cliffs of Königsstuhl, Marzipan, nudist beaches and bad weather.
Best time to explore Germany’s Baltic Sea is between June and August. But there is no guarantee for sunshine. The coast is unpredictable. Expect nothing weather wise and you be thankful for any sunny day.
Where to stay at Germany’s Baltic Sea Coast
The amount of accommodation available at Germany’s Baltic Sea goes far beyond 10,000 properties. And booking.com ratings testify: almost 2,000 of them are excellent. We picked a few pearls. No. 1: the Ruegen Ferienhof at Lieschow 26 a/b, 18569 Ummanz. This will be living on a farm – very suitable for families with kids. No. 2: Roewers Privathotel in Sellin. It got modern hotel facilities perfectly fitting into an old building. No. 3: Urlaubsart – Schleibrücke. That’s a resort in Kappeln, somewhere between Kiel and Flensburg. It provides a range of ground-floor and duplex apartments, most of with a view of the sea.</p
