Wellness at the Baltic Sea: Island Usedom

Exploring the German Baltic Sea

The popular island Usedom is located in the federal state of Mecklenburg-Western Pomerania, in the eastern part of Germany. The Baltic Sea’s climate is slightly milder than the one of the North Sea and many tourists visit the island because of its beautiful and sandy beaches.
Besides that, the region is also well-known for its fantastic cycling routes with an amazing view over the coastline.

The seaside resorts of Bansin, Heringsdorf and Ahlbeck

date back to the nineteenth century, the seaside resorts offer a fantastic variety of restaurants and cafés – all with great views over the sea. Heringsdorf is the largest of the resorts and definitely worth a visit – even if it’s just to see the unique architecture of the villas and mansions. Other great seaside towns include Zinnowitz, Kölpinsee and Ückeritz.
To perfect your stay on Usedom you should try a wellness hotel. The well-equipped hotels offer something for everyone. Thalassotherapy for example is a popular treatment, which is based on the natural ingredients of the sea. There’s also a great range of beauty, relaxation and medical treatments available, holistic therapies as well as nutritional advice and activity programs. After spending a day discovering one of the maritime cities like Lübeck, Stralsund or Rostock, an evening in the spa is just what you need.
