When the sea gulls call, the sea breeze blows, and the air has a hint of salt, then you've arrived on holiday to the Baltic Sea. Typically fantastic warm weather, kilometres-long sand beaches, manicured bike paths on the dykes, and the well-maintained elegant resort architecture of splendid times past lure in countless guests every year to the popular sea. In comparison to its neighbouring sister to the West, the North Sea, the Baltic is characterized by a somewhat milder climate. Additionally, you'll also find the health-beneficial bracing climate. For this reason, countless spa oases have settled down on the Baltic coast where you can leave behind the stress of the every-day store up energy and strength. Re-feuling is not a bad idea, as when you've finished your spa programme, a number of other activities await you, like biking, beach walks, kite flying, or surfing. The fruitful and upward growing backlands with the bordering Mecklenburger Lake District is protected from approaching waves of the sea by the sand- beach grass-covered dunes. Rügen - a fresh holiday breeze!
You'll always remember your holiday on Germany's largest island. Nearly every visitor succumbs to the appeal and charm of the splendid ''pearl of the North Sea''. No other German island offers such diversity: white beaches, lovely inland lakes, painterly alleys, rugged cliffs, and dense beech forests. As a guest of the magnificent Baltic Sea baths, you'll likely feel as if you've travelled back to another century. The annual Störtebeker festivals on the Nature Stage Ralswiek, the Cape Arkona, and the famous chalk cliffs are unique sights to behold. A visit to the nearby Hanseatic Cities of Stralsund and Rostock on the mainland round out the perfect Baltic Sea holiday.
