Overview

Venturing through one of Germany’s most beautiful travel destinations, this guide explores the broad sandy beaches, majestic beech forests, and gently rolling meadows of the Baltic coast. Old Hanseatic cities such as Lübeck and Stralsund and the elegant sea resorts of Heiligendamm and Ahlbeck are featured, unveiling quiet inlet harbors and colorful beach promenades. The unique character of the inviting nearby islands is also revealed, from Usedom with its Imperial resorts to Rügen's chalk cliffs and sleepy Fehmarn. Beautifully illustrated, this handbook sweeps the coastline from Flensburg to Lübeck and from Boltenhagen to Anklam. Six special sections report on amber, Brick Gothic, the Hanseatic League, regional painters, sculptors and writers, and resort architecture.
