Baltic Sea


The Baltic Sea, for centuries an invaluable trade port, is a unique blend of Nordic, Germanic and Slavic influences. The Vikings fought for control of it, the poets have written sonnets in tribute to it, and today it continues to inspire heroic feats. Here, unique natural wonders like Usedom, Rügen and Hiddensee, offer year-round wonder. Whether you’re exploring local Hanseatic fishing villages, magnificent brick churches, fortresses, castles and legendary Wilhelmenian-style resorts, sampling some of the local seafood delicacies like herring and whitefish, or simply enjoying the breathtaking scenery, you really can’t miss this windswept destination.
