Holiday tips and Impressions

Ferienhotel Bernstein is a great starting point for active holiday-makers.

  • 200 m behind the hotel starts the coast forest which changes to dunes after 1 km. Usedom Island boasts a very long sandy beach at the Baltic Sea. 35 km of unbroken coast line allow walking from Peenemünde at the Northern end of the island to Swinemünde on the Polish side. Forest and beach offer endless possibilities for hiking, jogging, or Nordic walking.
  • Ostseebad Trassenheide is integrated in the extensive network of bicycle paths of Usedom Island. Bike tours are great to explore the beaches and the lovely hinterland of the island.

In addition to the appealing scenery, Ostseebad Trassenheide offers a number of cultural activities. Each year, the tourist information organizes an attractive programme with events for guests of all ages.

Usedom Island is beautiful in all seasons. Flocks of migrating birds in autumn, glittering snow in winter or spring sun at the Achterwasser (coastal lagoon of the Baltic Sea) - especially the low season offers unique nature experiences in a quiet and peaceful ambience.
