Down By The Sea

Where Berlin - - SIGHTSEEING -

The lakes around Ber­lin are stun­ning, but if you’re miss­ing the briny blue, then fol­low other Ber­lin­ers as they make the roughly three-hour drive north to the pop­u­lar hol­i­day re­gions on the Baltic Sea. The first port of call (be­fore you leave the main­land) is Stral­sund, with its Hanseatic towns and Gothic his­toric cen­ter, which has earned it­self a UNESCO World Her­itage clas­si­fi­ca­tion. A short trip on the ferry or over the bridge will take you to Ger­many’s largest is­land, Rü­gen, renowned for its sea­side re­sorts, sleepy fish­ing vil­lages, and white chalk cliffs made fa­mous in paint­ings by Cas­par David Friedrich. Another beloved stop is the is­land of Use­dom, known for its well­ness ho­tels, long sandy beaches, and piers stretch­ing far out into the wa­ter. Re­turn to Ber­lin re­freshed and car­ry­ing mem­o­ries of wind, waves, and salty sea spray.
