Usedom is the second largest German island. With an average of 1,906 hours of sunshine a year, Usedom is the sunniest area in Germany. The perfect holiday destination is the 42 km long and up to 70 m wide fine sandy beach of the Baltic Sea coast.

It is no wonder that numerous seaside resorts were built on the island from around 1850 onwards, attracting guests mainly from Berlin. It takes two hours by train and two days by bicycle to get from Berlin to Usedom. Usedom is strongly influenced by tourism. Worth seeing are the numerous villas in the style of seaside resort architecture, traditionally built reed houses, fishermen’s cottages and the Ahlbeck pier.

The photo shows Stolpe Castle in the south-east of the island, a manor house built in the 16th century.
