Small is beautiful, as far as Zempin's concerned

Zempin is a resort with an impeccable pedigree. This classy-but-cute seaside village has been welcoming discerning vacationers for over 100 years, and Zempin vacation rentals are something a bit special. It's the smallest resort on the island, and compared to many of the larger, flashier places, it's much more traditional, with homey architecture and fishermen bringing in their boats each day on the wide, sandy beach. Of course, that also means the seafood 'round here is just about as fresh as it gets, and Zempin's well-stocked with restaurants where you can get acquainted with the day's catch.

The sort of amber you wouldn't mind being stuck in forever

It won't be long before you end up on Amber Beach, and you might find yourself wondering why it's named after a semi-precious stone, even though it's a real diamond of a place. Wide and sandy, dotted with sun loungers, it runs a whopping 12 km along the coast, connecting Zempin to neighboring spa resorts. From Zempin, there are all kinds of excursions you can take—for example, to the zoological attractions of Trassenheide, the museums of Peenemunde, or even over into Poland—or you might find yourself more inclined toward hiking and biking in the coastal forest.

Historical attractions that go off with a bang

If you know your military history, you'll know that Zempin vacation rentals are ideally located for an excursion up to the town of Peenemunde, a 20-minute drive away. It was here that the famous V-2 rocket was developed during World War 2, and the Historical Technical Museum has all the details. While you're in Peenemunde, you might also want to check out the town's other attractions: It's got a science museum, Phanomenta, plus a small toy museum and a U-Boat museum. Closer to home, you could visit the zoos in nearby Trassenheide, just 10 minutes by car from Zempin.

It's sun, sea, sand, and superlatives on Usedom

Zempin vacation rentals can defy expectations where weather is concerned. On the one hand, the fact that it's set on the Baltic Sea conjures up visions of howling winds and chilly temperatures; on the other hand, Usedom promotes itself as "the Sunny Island." In fact, the island does get more sunshine than anywhere else in Germany, and features long, warm summers. Winters, on the other hand, can get reasonably (but tolerably) cold, and you'll want to pack a raincoat for your Zempin vacation, as there's a decent amount of rainfall year-round.

Should it be "guten tag" or "dzien dobry"?

Zempin is set on the Baltic island of Usedom. It's just off the German mainland, but most of the main resorts are on the north coast, offering views of the Baltic Sea. Zempin vacation rentals are in the German section, but drive half an hour southeast and you'll find yourself unexpectedly in Poland, as the island is split between the 2 countries. As the tiniest resort on the island, located at its narrowest point, Zempin is best known for its wide, white-sand beach, and its spectacular sunsets. There's also an intriguing coastal forest that's best explored on foot or by bike.
