Wet and wild—finding adventure in a coastal town

Set along the Baltic Sea in Germany, Kuhlungsborn became a popular resort town with tourists in the 1860s. Today, crowds still flock to the quaint coastal town in search of rest and recreation. Kuhlungsborn vacation rentals never put you far from the town's famed beaches, where you can head into the waters for sporty activities, or stay on shore for a lazy day of fun in the sun. For a slightly different experience, head into the heart of the city, where you'll lose yourself in a menagerie of cozy cafes, sleepy alleyways, and ornate churches.

Swimming, sunbathing, and Segways? Fun is on the horizon

When you book Kuhlungsborn vacation rentals, you'll soon discover that you're never far from a host of activities. Start your day in town with a stroll down the pier or along the beachfront promenade lined with shops, restaurants, and bars. You can rent lounge chairs for sunbathing on the beach or, if you're feeling a bit more adventurous, try your hand at swimming, kitesurfing, or windsurfing. Many area companies also offer chartered sail-boat rides, guided bike tours, and Segway excursions. After all that excitement, treat yourself to a visit to a nearby spa.

Choo-choos chug along past cathedrals and churches

All aboard the Molli steam railway, a historic train that offers a 40-minute ride between Bad Doberan and Kuhlungsborn, as you soak up the beauty of the surrounding landscape. If you're more of a history buff, take a tour of St. John's Church in Kuhlungsborn-Ost, a 13th-century architectural masterpiece. For those with an interest in more recent history, visit the watchtower along the Baltic Sea that was once manned by East German troops. Today, the tower features exhibits detailing daring escapes from the former communist country.

Ready, set, freeze! Wintertime in the coastal community

It's winter and baby, it's cold outside as temperatures linger near or below freezing. Spring bring the thaw, with daytime highs climbing to the low 60s. Summers get even warmer as the mercury hits the 70s, but if you book a Kuhlungsborn vacation rental for the warm-weathered season, pack an umbrella as the town receives up to 7 inches of rain each month. The autumn months offer cooler conditions, with highs in the 40s and 50s. Snow dusts the landscape from November through April, but make sure you bundle up in January and February, the snowiest months of the year.

Seal of approval: searching for wildlife along the coast

The beaches are the big draw for travelers to Kuhlungsborn, with a landscape offering everything from gorgeous sandy coastlines to rocky shores. You may also spot a wide variety of seals frolicking beneath the sea's surface and sunbathing along its jagged shorelines. Don't leave home without your fishing rod as you can spend the day casting a line in the hope of catching cod, herring, or flounder. Further inland, the town is surrounded by a forested ridge, and is home to a watery scene dotted with small lakes, sleepy streams, and peaceful ponds.
