Sassnitz – GERMANY

Sail along the coast of Germany’s most beautiful island!

The traditional port town Sassnitz welcomes visitors between the rocky chalk cliffs and sandy beaches of Rügen island!

Its cobbled harbour was one of Germany’s main seaside resorts in the 19th century; today it’s a centre for arts and crafts. Sassnitz is well-known for its beautiful villas built in style of spa architecture. The town is a gateway to the nearby Jasmund National Park with its Ancient Beech Forests protected by UNESCO. An elegantly curved suspension bridge connects the centre with the town harbour where fishermen bring their catch ashore. Artisian workshops, ship chandlers and sail makers, museums and shops with regional products are to be found beside the island’s largest fish counter and charming sea food restaurants. The longest outer mole of Europe with its 1,444 metres across the Baltic Sea invites visitors to take a pleasant walk and enjoy the maritime atmosphere.
