Top 5 Germany’s Best Beaches

While many Germans flee their country for Italy, Greece, and Spain in summer, there is no need to leave Germany’s borders for a Best Beaches vacation.
1. Ruegen

The largest and most visited German island is – of course – the site of some of the country’s best beaches.

2. Hiddensee

Located to the west of Rügen, this car-free island in the Baltic Sea is relatively unknown to outsiders – but that is changing.

3. Sylt

Another island destination in the north, oddly-shaped Sylt has nearly 40 km of beachfront – enough to satisfy any dedicated sun-worshipper.

4. Warnemuende

A seaside resort next to surprisingly charming Rostock, this was once just a small fishing village founded in 1200.

5. Travemuende

Located near lovely Lübeck with its distinctive Hanseatic brick architecture, this seafaring destination has been going strong since 1802.
