42 kilometres of fine sandy beaches, over 2,000 hours of sunshine each year, great spa offerings and beautiful nature: the Baltic island of Usedom is Germany’s second biggest island and one of the country’s most favoured holiday destinations throughout the year. Let us find out more about the island’s offerings in 2018. Around 200 years ago, the first summer visitors came to Usedom and transformed the farming and fishing villages into a relaxation destination for city dwellers. Today, picturesque landscapes, endless beaches, a lively atmosphere in the town centres and a special mix of beach, nature, wellness and maritime
charm make Usedom – one of Germany’s sunniest places – a popular tourist destination. The island’s seaside resorts exude elegance and tradition with their magnificent spa architecture which is coined by long piers and a diversity of styles from renaissance palaces to classicist merchant mansions.
