Who miles Sandy beaches like, for is a pleasure trip to the Baltic Sea in Mecklenburg-Vorpommern precisely. However, the region doesn't just offer bathing fun. On the contrary: architecture and art lovers will find just as much here as gourmands who enjoy exceptional food. We were traveling in the Baltic Sea regions of Germany and looked at what gourmets between Usedom, Rügen and Kühlungsborn.

The white villas of Binz
The town of Binz on the north coast of Rügen seduces visitors with its white villas to stroll along the long promenade. Colorful beach chairs invite you to spend an afternoon in the sun with a good book. After stormier days, it is also worth looking out for amber washed up on the beach. Or just drop by Finbarr Corrigan's. Born in Ireland, he makes wonderful pieces of amber jewelry that can be bought in his shop in Binz. You shouldn't miss the Kurhaus Cake. This is served in the Café Glashaus. It tastes delicious with a glass of sea buckthorn juice.
Culture and history in Stralsund for a pleasure trip to the Baltic Sea
Not far away the city of Stralsund on the mainland. With its imposing churches, the harbor and the gothic town hall, the city is also a treat for art and culture lovers. As a Hanseatic city Stralsund sees its wealth as a former trading city to this day. No wonder that she was named a UNESCO World Heritage Site. Definitely worth seeing is the St. Nikolai Church with its colorful nave.
Beach, villas and star cuisine in Kühlungsborn
The Ostseebad Kühlungsborn is not quite as sophisticated as Binz. It's quieter and more contemplative here. Nevertheless, the place is perfect for a pleasure trip to the Baltic Sea. A walk along the promenade leads past the groynes. These are wooden palisades that are built out into the sea along the coast of Mecklenburg-Western Pomerania to prevent the waves from carrying away the beach. They were erected at regular intervals along the coastline of Kühlungsborn. At the small marina of Kühlungsborn there are a few shops that invite you to browse.
During this pleasure trip to the Baltic Sea, a visit to the Bistro Edel und Scharf is worthwhile for an extraordinary lunch. Currywurst and fries are served here Champagne served. If you like something more down-to-earth, you might want to take a tea break at the Ostseehotel Kuehlungsborn Dear. There are also delicious cakes like the chocolate cake with poppy seed and cherry filling and a sweet marzipan coating, which we tried on our visit. At the end of the day, you shouldn't miss the meal by star chef Tillmann Hahn. In Tillmann Hahns Gasthaus there is definitely excellent cuisine in an atmosphere in which everyone feels comfortable.

I love the Baltic Sea. Since we have children we spend a lot of holidays in Germany. There are so many beautiful corners with us. ;-)
I can only agree. Until a few years ago, traveling meant that I always fly to other continents. Everything that took place in Germany was an "excursion". In recent years we have been blogging more and more in Germany and are enthusiastic about what there is to discover here.
I have never really been to northern Germany (except in Hamburg, but only for an event) and am always surprised to discover these many beautiful places with you! Especially the first picture is such a typical Fernwehauslöse picture for me ... Great! Thank you for taking me to the Baltic Sea.
We have also been traveling in Germany more often for a few years now. That's why I know that very well. Germany offers many beautiful and varied destinations worth discovering.
I have never been to the Baltic Sea, as it is a bit away from my home country - but according to your pictures, it looks fantastically beautiful. I also like the architecture - especially the Kurhaus Binz I like very much.
this is no different for us. We also live near the German-Austrian border. But since we were there for the first time a few years ago, we've been drawn there several times. Especially the seaside resorts have done it to us. We would also like to look at Usedom and Hiddensee.
Baltic Sea is always. Feels at any time of day or night.
I'm back again this weekend and I'm glad that it's not far from Berlin.
Merci for your recommendations.
For us, the Baltic lies at the other end of Germany. From Bavaria, she is a holiday destination for longer trips. Nice if you can use them for trips. Have fun.
Immediately childhood memories come up to me when I read your report on the Baltic Sea. In the 80 years I was with my brother and my parents always in Binz on the beach and in rainy weather in the maritime museum in Stralsund. Before 2 years ago I have my partner from NRW to 1. Once towed to Binz and he was also completely thrilled by the spa culture and the many woods. And it will not be the last time and then there will be a piece of your well praised Kurhaus cake.
I can understand your partner very well there. Binz and his seaside architecture and Stralsund with its Gothic architecture have also delighted us. In the meantime we have been there several times, because we like it so much. You must try the Kurhaus cake. She lives up to her reputation.
if I had the choice, I would probably choose the "GrandeDame of the bathroom architecture" to try your words. :) Great tips, was definitely a lot of fun. I like the Baltic Sea region. LG Julia
We have been to Rügen three times because we like it there so much. There is a lot to see and do. But also the region between Rügen, Stralsund and Kühlungsborn offers beautiful beaches, small villages and lots of nature, which is worth a trip.
Stralsund is a beautiful city, I was there years ago. Unfortunately, the journey from us is quite long, but maybe it works again. Incidentally, is also a wonderful winter destination.
I can imagine that, Antje. The city has also thrilled us.
Simply wonderful, I really like the Baltic Sea!
Thank you very much, dear Jenny. Since our trips there we are also big fans. We did not like everything. Heiligendamm, with its dilapidated mansions and the fencing still left over from the pinnacle of world politics, we found terrible, but the three places in the article and the Darss region inspired us.
