Destination guide

Wilderness, nature, and seaside fun in Koserow

The charming town of Koserow is located at the narrowest point of the island of Usedom, set between the Baltic Sea and the Achterwasser lagoon. It's part of a chain of resorts known as the "amber spas" because of the glistening amber stones that wash ashore on stormy days. Once a fishing village, Koserow is now expert at welcoming visitors from all over. Whether you're looking for a raucous beach party during spring break, a romantic getaway to therapeutic baths, or an adventure through wild wetlands, Koserow vacation rentals provide ideal locations for your vacation kick-off.

Things to do

Old churches and new art museums, plus fun for the kids

Koserow's Village Church (or Dorfkirche) is the oldest and only medieval church on the Baltic coast of Usedom Island. It features original 13th-century stonework, Gothic decorative features, and the Vineta Cross, a large crucifix that was rescued from the sea by local fishermen. For art lovers, there's the Museum Atelier Otto Neimeyer-Holstein, set in the former home and studio of the painter, one of the most influential of the late 20th century. You can satisfy any rowdy little ones in your party at Karls Erlebnis-Dorf, a kid-themed amusement park with tractor courses, hay-jumping games, and electric car rides.

Activities

In a pool, a lagoon, or the sea—a bath for every sort

The city is known best for its many options for getting wet. Most Koserow vacation rentals share access to a fine sandy beach, as do visitors to other towns along the amber corridor. Jump in the ocean or in the toasty thermal baths of an elegant spa. If you'd rather elevate your heart rate, you're welcome to charter a sailboat, surf the waves, or cycle through the nearby natural landscape. Eco tours are always a popular option, since there are too many rich marine habitats to explore without the help of someone in the know.

Weather

Warm summers, festive springs, and spa-worthy winters

Set between the Achterwasser lagoon and the Baltic Sea, Koserow is surrounded by a watery, marine climate that features warm summers and cold winters. Summer temps climb to the 70s and 80s, and that's when travel to Koserow is most popular, although spring breakers flock to the beach in March, and spa enthusiasts drop by year-round. If you're looking for Koserow vacation rentals at bargain rates, try booking in winter or early spring. You may not score much beach time, but the natural landscape and local thermal baths are open and steamy.

Natural features

No matter where you are, you're in a giant nature park

If you love nature, you've come to the right place. The entire island is 1 big park, the Usedom Island Nature Park, to be exact, and it's a stunning collection of meadows, deep blue lakes, forests, and wetlands. You can train your binoculars on eagles, plovers, and swallows as you explore juniper forests atop cliffs overlooking hills and salt marshes. Closer to shore, you can sign up for a guided tour of the coast, or set off on your own in search of otters, wading birds, and herons.
