Sun, beach and more ...

Welcome to Germany's sunny island.

According to measurements by the German Weather Service, Usedom is one of the sunniest holiday regions in Germany with an average of around 2,000 hours of sunshine a year.

Located in the extreme north-east, Usedom is the second largest island in the country at 445 km². The island has 200 km of coastline, including 40 km of beautiful wide and fine sandy beaches, all of which run flat into the water.

Usedom offers a number of attractions for all nature lovers - on numerous cycling and hiking trails you can go on a discovery tour through green avenues, moored lowlands and salt marshes and explore the rare animal and plant world.

Usedom also includes 13 inland lakes and large landscape protection areas, and hard to believe, but true – as well two mountains. The highest elevation at about 60 m is the Steckelsberg near Koserow. A challenge for every cyclist. Because a designated cycle path with a 16 percent incline leads over it!

With its fantastic beaches, the traditional seaside resorts and the natural hinterland, Usedom is a perfect holiday destination for a few days off or a long eventful holiday.

Believe it or not. The following laws once applied on Usedom:

§ 1: Bathing in the Baltic Sea outside of the bathing establishments from the beach is prohibited in the interests of public order and safety.

§ 2: During bathing hours from 6:00 a.m. to 12:00 p.m., men are not allowed to be on the beach in front of the women's bathing establishments and on either side of them up to a distance of 75 meters, the distances are indicated by signs.

§ 3: Violations of this prohibition are punished with fines of up to nine marks.

Luckily that's history now. And so you will find every type of beach within walking distance of Usedom Palace. The family beach with the famous blue beach chairs and the pier right in front of the door. North and south a nudist beach and a dog beach.
