A scenic German gem hiding in plain sight

Sassnitz sits on the coast of Germany's largest island of Rugen, and is the perfect seaside escape to the scenic Jasmund Peninsula. Its prime positioning just below the Jasmund National Park means that outdoor activities are king. But whether you plan to strap on your hiking boots or just kick back and relax, there are plenty of options in this hidden German gem. Look at Sassnitz vacation rentals in town, along the coast, or on the edge of the beechwood forests throughout the national park, and you're surely in for a vacation to remember.

How do you say "let's get physical" in German?

Sassnitz is inside the Jasmund National Park, and a network of trails winds through its beech forests, perfect for hiking, bird-watching, and cycling. Look at Sassnitz vacation rentals near the coast, where you'll also find plenty of activities to occupy your time. The resort town overlooks sandy beaches made for sunbathing and swimming, or you can rent boats, watersports equipment, and snorkeling or scuba gear. In town, spend your days sitting outside at any of the restaurants and cafes, or hit some of the local shops for the perfect gifts to take back home.

Visit the animal kingdom, from snorkeling to schmetterlings

There's much history to explore in Sassnitz and around the rest of Rugen. Be sure to visit the Erlebniswelt U-Boat naval museum, quirkily housed inside the submarine HMS Otus—a British boat! If you'd prefer to spend your time outdoors, you'll find you're surrounded by the thick, beech forests of Jasmund National Park. Visit the chalk cliffs, and hike up to the King's Chair, where you'll find a visitors' center with exhibits highlighting Rugen nature. After, take the kids to the Alaris Butterfly Park, and walk through houses of fluttering tropical butterflies.

Ja, ja, ja to summers by the sea, bitte and danke

Sassnitz, like many towns on the Black Sea, is best enjoyed in summer. You'll find the town come alive in July and August, when the sun stays in the sky well into the evening. Summer also means crowded beaches and high prices, so if you'd rather avoid both, consider visiting in late spring or early fall. You'll still find pleasant weather, but the prices and crowds are more manageable. Booking Sassnitz vacation rentals in winter will give you the chance to explore the area's indoor activities, and get a feel for the true local life.

Feel like true royalty on the King's Chair

The village of Sassnitz sits on Germany's largest island, Rugen, part of the Jasmund peninsula, set on the edge of the Jasmund National Park. This location between the Black Sea and the park makes for stunning views, and the area is notable for its thick beechwood forests. The local trails are perfect for hiking, biking, and bird-watching for the local white-tailed eagles. Along the coast, you'll find dramatic chalk cliffs, most notably the Konigsstuhl, or the "King's Chair," which features a long platform that looks out over the Baltic Sea.
