Relaxation by the Sea
The Baltic Sea runs along the north coast of Germany, and offers countless possibilities to swim, sail, surf and relax in one of the many resorts and islands.
Between the beautiful port city of Flensburg and the island of Usedom there are about 750 kilometres of coastline. In places like Kiel, Travemünde, Boltenhagen and Rostock, the Baltic Sea offers countless activities, for young and old. If being active is an important part of your holiday then there are hundreds of possibilities, from golf to climbing, bike tours and go-karting.
On the Water
For those who prefer to spend their holidays on the water, water skiing is popular in many resorts along the Baltic Sea, and there are also possibilities for diving, fishing, surfing and sailing.
Alternatively, take to the water by boat and explore the coastal landscapes. Take a boat from Ahlbeck (German only) and head just across the border to Swinemuende in Poland, or go from Malente-Gremsmuehlen on a tour of five beautiful lakes in the Holsteinische Schweiz region.
There are also, of course, numerous beaches right along the coast, including Heiligendamm, supposedly the birthplace of bathing culture in North Germany. From pretty beach towns such as Kuehlungsborn, all the way up to the Polish border, there are hundreds of beaches, and beautiful beach promenades to be discovered.
