Forty-two kilometres of sandy beach, 2,000 hours of sunshine each year, beautiful landscapes and a fine spa culture: Usedom, the second biggest Pomeranian island, is one of Germany’s major holiday and recreation resorts. All over the year, tourists love to come here for sunbathing, walking along the coastline feeling the fine-grained sand under their feet, or to go cycling. Since the Baltic Sea Island is just two and a half hours away from Berlin, it is also the weekend destination of choice for many cityslickers.
