Top 3 travel tips
Rügen is not only the largest island in Germany, but probably also the most popular. Its many bays, lagoons, peninsulas and headlands make it perfect for quiet holidays. It gets more exciting in the capital Bergen, where you can spend your holidays in a great holiday apartment or a cosy holiday home.2nd sightseeing in Stralsund
And if you are already on your way to Rügen, take some time to explore Stralsund. Due to the two bridges, the city is regarded as the "gateway to Rügen", but it also has a lot to offer. For example, the beautiful old town, which has been continuously renovated since 1900 and was included in the UNESCO World Cultural Heritage in 2002 with the old town of Wismar as a reward. A "highlight" are the two preserved Stralsund city fortifications Kniepertor and Kütertor.3. Hiking in the national park Vorpommersche Buddenlandschaft
The national park stretches along the Baltic Sea coast of Western Pomerania, about half of its surface area is covered by the waters of the Baltic Sea - so what could be nicer than extensive walks along the coast here? There are numerous hiking trails through the park, where you can meet many animal inhabitants, from the grey seal to wild boar. The island of Hiddensee also has a small and rare population of moufflons.
