Today you can enjoy the lightness of life in the water, tomorrow you can race along the Baltic coast on your bike and feel the rush of speed. The day after tomorrow just stretch your feet in the warm sand and soak up the sun. Hiking, biking, sailing, playing beach volleyball, roaming through the woods or windsurfing. It's nice when places always have exactly what you're looking for! So that you just have to pack your bags, we have looked around the Baltic Sea. Here are our tips including accommodation suggestions:


Imperial overnight stay on Rügen

White villas in the style of spa architecture, piers and magnificent promenades - In the 19th century, many small fishing villages on the Baltic Sea were transformed into magnificent seaside resorts. So did Binz, the historic town on the island of Rügen, which is still one of the most popular seaside resorts on the Baltic Sea. One of the landmarks of the town is the Travel Charme Kurhaus, an imposing building with over 100 years of history. Anyone staying here will get a taste of the exclusive past of imperial times: Aristocrats such as Empress Viktoria were among the first guests of the house. The location is also impressive: from the balcony or terrace, guests look out onto the sandy beach (which is a remarkable 15 kilometers long in Binz), as well as the historic 370-meter-long pier, from the head of which there is a wonderfully beautiful panoramic view of the seaside of Binz. The pier is also the starting point for a boat tour along the white shining chalk cliffs. Of course, you can also grab a bike and ride the approximately 15 kilometers to the famous Königsstuhl, the highest point of the rock formations that watch over the Baltic Sea in the Jasmund National Park. 

At Travel Charme Hotel Nordperd & Villas in the Baltic resort of Göhren, you'll get up close and personal with another of the island's unique natural areas: the UNESCO Southeast Rügen Biosphere Reserve. And with Lo and Brunhilde, the magnificent villas located next to the main house on the high shore of Göhren. The location of the Hotel Nordperd & Villas is doubly practical: If you feel like moving, you can reach the forest and meadows of the nature reserve on the Nordperd headland in just a few minutes on foot. If the view is enough for you, you can stay in the 4-star hotel and enjoy the panoramic view of the sea. Maybe even sipping cocktails in the Südstrand Bar?

Child friendly vacation on Usedom

It's as if you can hear it calling all the time, the surf of the Baltic Seawhich stretches to the horizon. And the landscape on Usedom also shows its farthest side in other respects: Deep green, quiet forests extend inland just a few meters from the sea. And on the kilometer-long sandy beaches, walks quickly escalate into short hikes along the water. On the Europa Promenade, Europe's longest beach promenade, you can even reach Swinemünde in Poland on foot or by bike through beech forests and dunes. On Usedom, the 12-kilometer promenade connects the "imperial spas" of Heringsdorf, Bansin and Ahlbeck. 

Our tips for overnight stays: The Travel Charme Strandidyll Heringsdorf, which is located directly on the beach promenade of the oldest seaside resort on the island. The elegant 4-star hotel is popular not only for its location, but also for its good cuisine. Sitting under the glass dome, you can enjoy the Baltic Sea view and fine regional dishes. For families the Travel Charme Strandhotel Bansin especially recommended, as the hotel is located directly on the fine sandy beach of the island. The lovingly designed children's restaurant serves delicious and healthy food, and the children's club invites you to do face painting, handicrafts and baking activities. Incidentally, Usedom was also a place of longing for the celebrities of past centuries: Theodor Fontane, Maxim Gorki, Leo Tolstoy and Kaiser Wilhelm II were among the famous guests of the seaside resorts.

Recreation in Kühlungsborn, the green city by the sea

Kühlungsborn is Mecklenburg's largest Baltic Sea resort. In the "Green City by the Sea" you can breathe in the air of the sea and the forest: enclosed by the districts of the seaside resort, the large city park with its generous network of paths invites you to explore on foot or by bike. For recreation seekers with (water) sports ambitions, we recommend the Travel Charme Baltic Sea HotelZur Seebrücke 1 - even the address of the elegant 4-star hotel sounds promising. And indeed: From the terrace you have a view of the beach, the sea and the pier. A stroll along the seaside promenade, which at almost five kilometers is one of the longest promenades in Germany, also promises an unrestricted view of the sea. Our tip: Stand-up paddling on the Baltic Sea - you can get the board for this quite conveniently at the hotel.
