The most beautiful beaches on the Baltic Sea
Fine sandy beaches, clear, clean water, hidden bays and water sports - the Baltic Sea is blessed with the most magnificent beaches and promises all its bathers the greatest holiday pleasures. From the Kiel Fjord with the Baltic resort of Laboe, to Timmendorfer Strand, to Warenmünde, to the Fischland-Darß-Zingst peninsula and then to Stralsund, on to Heringsdorf on Usedom and the Baltic resort of Binz or the Baltic resort of Sellin on the island of Rügen: extensive beaches with fine sand, nestled in a picturesque landscape of dunes and cosy beach chairs as far as the eye can see. Whether old or young, families or singles, active holidaymakers or sun worshippers, everyone is guaranteed to find their perfect beach on the magnificent Baltic coast in this top selection.
Kiel Fjord - Counting Ships
Surrounded by beech trees, the small but beautiful Baltic Sea beach in Heikendorf on the Kiel Fjord is just a short ferry ride from Kiel City. Lying here in a cosy beach chair close to the waves of the Baltic Sea, you can linger completely in the moment and at the same time feel the vastness of the world. Ships of all colours and sizes pass by so close that you can wave to the passengers. I wonder where this cruise ship is going? Oh, how good it is that you have already arrived yourself. Heikendorf is divided into several districts, such as Kitzeberg, Möltenort, Neuheikendorf, Altheikendorf and Schrevenborn. In Möltenort there is a small fishing harbour where the "lightship" is moored, where you can even get married.
The Baltic resort of Laboe, with its beautifully landscaped harbour, beach and promenade with small shops and restaurants, is a popular holiday resort on the fjord with a wonderful beach on the sunny side of the bay. For holidaymakers, the Labo memorial should be a destination on their trip. From the very top you have a great view. For those interested, there is a tour of the submarine. Also recommended: the beach at Falkenstein on the west side of the fjord offers a beautiful stretch, as well as a youth village that was a meeting place for young people from all over the world during the 1972 Olympic sailing competitions. Today it is still a popular meeting place and destination for holidaymakers.
Kronsgaard - Baltic Romanticism at its Best
The Baltic Sea beach at Kronsgaard looks like a painting by a romantic painter. This natural beauty is barely an hour's drive from the lively cultural metropolis of Kiel, making it ideal for city lovers and romantics. Flower meadows stretch all the way to the beach and form a wonderful composition of colours. Colourful wooden boats bob up and down on the shore. During the summer months, the lifeguards from the DLRG ensure carefree bathing pleasure. After a refreshing swim, take a coastal hike to the Geltinger Birk nature reserve, where the landscape is reminiscent of a small primeval forest.
California - a place of longing on the Baltic Sea
If you fancy white sand, clear water and surfing, you don't have to travel across the Atlantic Ocean. This California is only half an hour's drive from Kiel on the beautiful Baltic Sea coast. Legend has it that a fisherman once found a weathered ship's plank on the Baltic Sea beach after a storm, on which the writing "California" could still be deciphered. The fisherman was thrilled and nailed the plank to his front door. This sealed the name of the place. California's small but beautiful beach is a popular destination for families, walkers and sun worshippers. Water sports enthusiasts also get their money's worth here. And in summer, a stage is set up behind the dyke. By the way, globetrotters can travel on to Brazil. It's right next door on the Baltic Sea beach. Why go far afield when the good things are so close?
South beach Fehmarn - glorious sand and blue waves
A dream for all sun worshippers, water rats and beach sports fans: spacious, fine-sand beaches invite you to dig, swim and romp around. The beaches at Burgtiefe and Wulfener Hals are the southernmost and whitest sandy beaches on the island.
Fine white sand and blue sea await guests on the southern beach. The beach slopes gently into the water, so families with children will also be happy on this beach. On the adjacent beach promenade, holidaymakers will find restaurants, kiosks and ice cream parlours. The view of the Fehmarnsund Bridge is also attractive.
Katharinenhof - natural beach for romantics
The beautiful beach on the east side of Fehmarn Island, the largest island in the Baltic Sea in Schleswig-Holstein, promises pure natural idyll. Here you can swim in crystal-clear water surrounded by beautiful trees. Those who want to picnic with a magnificent view of the waves can make themselves comfortable on the small benches and seating stones on the grassy dunes. Even in high season, this spot on the Baltic Sea is quiet. There are no water sports facilities. You should also provide your own food and drink, as there are no restaurants or shopping facilities in the immediate vicinity of the beach. Romantics bring a hammock and admire the sunrise in the early morning.
Timmendorfer Strand - Baltic Sea fun for all seasons
If you love action and lively activity, Timmendorfer Strand is the place to be. In addition to the beach chairs and sunbeds, there is also a wide range of water sports. On the Baltic beaches around the Seeschlösschen and Maritim piers, there is even a free sports programme during the summer months. There is always something to see: the German beach volleyball championships in August, for example. Or the beach hockey championships. Even in winter there is a lot going on here. Then the restaurants with fresh delicacies from the Baltic Sea and cosy cafés attract guests to the spa promenade. Those who like it quieter will feel at home in the smaller family resort of Niendorf, which also belongs to the municipality of Timmendorf. The good train connections to Hamburg and Lübeck make Timmendorfer Strand quick and easy to reach. Our Romantik Hotel Fuchsbau Timmendorfer Strand is close to the beach and offers a high standard of cuisine.
Darßer Weststrand - beach chair idyll with culture
The most beautiful beaches of the Baltic Sea line up on the peninsula Fischland-Darß-Zingst in the middle of the National Park Vorpommersche Boddenlandschaft. Wonderful kilometre-long sandy beaches, crooked pines, deep blue water, unspoilt forest and Bodden await nature-loving beachgoers here. By the way, sunglasses are guaranteed to come in handy on Darß - the peninsula on the Baltic Sea is one of the sunniest regions in Germany. If you feel like cooling off, you can plunge into the Baltic Sea tides without a care in the world. The water quality is controlled and has been awarded the "Blue Flag" quality seal. From June to September, professional lifeguards look after the safety of all bathers. Parents with children can get wristbands for their little ones on request so that they can be found quickly if they get lost.
However, bathers interested in culture should leave the beach chair at some point: The artists' colony of Ahrenshoop is nearby and an absolute must. The picturesque town is bubbling over with creative energy and offers many exhibitions worth seeing. In Prerow you can stroll across the 400-metre-long pier and visit the Darßer Ort lighthouse.
Heringsdorf on Usedom - bathing and strolling
The fashionable seaside resort on the Baltic Sea captivates its guests with an extensive, fine sandy beach, elegant villas from bygone times, and the longest pier in Germany. The imposing structure is around 508 metres long; anyone who wants to can walk along it and enjoy the magnificent view of the beach and sea from its tip. If the Baltic Sea wind blows too hard around your ears on the pier, you can indulge your palate in the restaurant there, or stroll back to the waterfront promenade. There you will find a wide variety of gastronomic offerings for both large and small pockets.
Baltic resort Binz - Rügen's pearl
The Baltic resort of Binz is one of the most popular bathing resorts in Germany and the largest resort on the island of Rügen. The magnificent beach promenade with villas in the style of spa architecture is a real feast for the eyes. The kilometre-long sandy beach is particularly fine. And the DLRG-guarded bathing in the protected bay is a carefree pleasure for young and old. Binz welcomes its beach holidaymakers with a long-standing tradition: since 1885, the little town has been allowed to call itself a Baltic Sea resort. Over the decades, the range of activities on offer at the beach has expanded even further. However, the extraordinary charm of the Baltic resort of Binz has remained intact.
Ostseebad Sellin - Heavenly ladder to bathing happiness
If you want to reach the northern beach of the beautiful Baltic resort Sellin, you have the choice: Either take the sky ladder, 87 wooden steps leading down from the high shore, or quite comfortably the free lift. At the bottom, a wonderful sandy beach awaits you, sheltered from the wind, clean and dotted with inviting beach chairs. What immediately catches the eye is the magnificent pier that juts far out into the sea. At its tip is the largest diving gondola in Europe. Up to 30 people can be transported here per dive into the underwater world of the Baltic Sea. An educational adventure: during the dive you learn interesting details about the flora and fauna of the Baltic Sea. A great water adventure - not only for children!
Strandbad Stralsund - urban bathing fun
Just strolled through Stralsund's pedestrian zone and the next moment you feel like a relaxing day at the beach? No problem, the beautiful Strandbad Stralsund is within walking distance and offers a multifaceted programme for everyone: sports enthusiasts can work off their energy on the volleyball courts, families with small children will appreciate the playground and the shallow water entrance near the main entrance, and the eastern part offers a magnificent view of the Rügen Bridge and St. Nikolai's Church. If you want, you can rent one of the two barbecue areas on the beach and dine in convivial company with a view of the water. There is also a kiosk where you can get something to eat.
Rosenort - nature paradise for hiking fans
This natural beach near Warnemünde is one of the most beautiful on the Baltic Sea - and can only be reached on foot or by bicycle. It's worth the effort: once you've passed the idyllic coastal forest, you'll be rewarded with a unique natural backdrop: glowing sea buckthorn fringes the curved dunes, with the glittering sea behind them. If you are travelling by bike, you can continue on to Ahrenshoop. On the way to the artists' colony, which is well worth seeing, you cycle through picturesque heath landscapes, along the Bodden waters and along the coast.
Warnemünde - bathing fun for little Baltic Sea pirates
The 15-kilometre-long beach at Warnemünde is one of the most beautiful bathing destinations for families on the Baltic Sea. The sand is as fine as icing sugar, the water sky-blue. Thanks to its spaciousness, you can always find a suitable spot on Warnemünde beach to roll out your beach mat and relax, even in the high season. The east of the beach is anything but quiet. Here there is an exciting pirate beach for children - with climbing frames, playgrounds and trampolines!
Weissenhaus - the surf spot on the Baltic Sea
The beach at Weissenhaus is the Mecca for surfing fans! If the wind blows strongly enough across the sea, the waves here can reach three metres high - a guarantee for extensive surfing fun! Not only the surfers love the Hohenwachter Bucht, it is also a great pleasure for spectators to enjoy a refreshing drink on the terrace of the "Bootshaus" and watch the adventurous goings-on.
