If you are looking for genuine recreation, then this is the place where you will find it. Far away from the relentless pace of the big cities, forrest, farmland and the baltic coast combine into one breathtaking landscape.

Numerous sorts of aquatic sports are pursued in the region. Pittoresque Hanseatic cities Greifswald and Stralsund invite ramblers and shoppers. Germanys two biggest and most beautiful islands, Rügen and Usedom, can easily be reached by car. Walking, hiking and ambling find no limis in the expanse of the lush pomeranian countryside.

The weather in this region is dominated by continental influence. With 500mm of rain per year, precipitation is far below german average. Nearby Usedom boasts 1917 hours of sunshine a year (average), making it the most sunny region in Germany. Still, a constant fresh breeze from the baltic sea consistently keeps temperatures well below the searing heat plaguing most of inland europe.
