Apartments at the Baltic Sea
If you want to pitch your tents right on the coast, the mainland offers a wide range of holiday accommodation. You have the choice between cosy holiday apartments, romantic chalets on the lakes or a vacation rental directly behind the coastline. The holiday regions around Eckernförde, Neustadt, Kühlungsborn, Stralsund and Greifswald offer a particularly wide range of activities. The apartments and houses on the offshore coastal strip near Wustrow and Zingst are idyllically situated.An apartment in the city
If, on the other hand, you are attracted by the cities with their numerous cultural sights, you are best served with a holiday apartment or an apartment in the Baltic Sea metropolises of Flensburg, Kiel, Rostock or Wismar. From the mostly very centrally located quarters, you can not only reach the sights and nightlife of the cities comfortably on foot, but also benefit from the connection to the regional train network, via which you can also reach the beaches in a short time.Holidays on the Baltic islands
Islands such as Usedom, Rügen or Zingst, on the other hand, are particularly attractive to travellers who want to spend their holidays far away from the urban hustle and bustle and switch off in the midst of a unique natural landscape. The holiday homes, which usually have their own garden, offer more than enough space for the whole family as well as for your four-legged family members. One of the most popular destinations for nature lovers is the island of Fehmarn, which you can reach via the Fehmarnsund Bridge.

If you want to spend your holiday actively, you will feel at home at the Baltic Sea, because both on land and in the water there is more than enough action on offer. While families and pleasure cyclists cycle on the well-developed cycle paths from the coast to the lakes of Holstein Switzerland and enjoy the landscape, adventurers are drawn to hiking or geocaching. Water sports enthusiasts either set sail with a sailing yacht, practice the new trend sport Stand Up Paddling, ride on the waves of the Baltic Sea or explore the beauty of the underwater world during a dive.With dog at the Baltic Sea
Thanks to the many dog-friendly vacation rentals and apartments with large enclosed properties, the Baltic Sea presents itself as a dog paradise. The multi-faceted landscapes with their endless long sandy beaches, the almost deserted dune landscapes and the idyllic lakes promise more than enough space for extended walks, in the context of which your darling can also let the sea air blow around the wet nose. In addition, there are many dog beaches along the Baltic Sea, whereby it should be mentioned that in the low season in spring and autumn you can also explore the official beaches with your dog.
