Destination guide

Stunning German beaches? You got it, Baabe.

Set along Germany's northeast coast, this charming beach town is on the country's largest island, Rugen, overlooking the Black Sea. Baabe also shares its coastline with the neighboring town of Gohren, and both are famous for their scenic beaches. This also means that many of these 2 towns' highlights overlap, including a love for watersports, snorkeling, and sailing. But whether you look at Gohren or Baabe vacation rentals, 1 thing is for sure: a vacation here is sure to feel like a true escape into 1 of Germany's hidden gems.

Things to do

All aboard! You've never beach-hopped like this before

Baabe, as well as the rest of the island of Rugen, has quite a few sights worth seeing. Tour the Monchgut Coastal Fishing Museum in town, or hop aboard the historic Rasender Roland steam train for a totally new style of beach-hopping. If in nearby Strassnitz, visit the Erlebniswelt U-Boat naval museum, set inside the British submarine, HMS Otus. Or you could try the Jasmund National Park. It's famous for its beechwood forests and chalk cliffs, as well as the lookout point and exhibits at the King's Chair visitor center. The kids will love the Alaris Butterfly Park, where houses of fluttering tropical butterflies await.

Activities

You'll be a Baabe beach babe in no time

Don't be surprised if your time in Baabe revolves around its sandy beaches. Kite surfing, waterskiing, and windsurfing are popular pastimes, or you can take a boat tour into the Black Sea to spend the day lounging on deck or scuba diving in the clear waters. Away from the beaches, you'll find the island offers cycling and hiking trails that wind through thick forests, with scenic lookout points over the sea or the nearby Selliner Lake. Check out Baabe vacation rentals on either coast, and take in the waterfront views.

Weather

From summer hotspot to cozy winter escape

Thanks to its ranking as 1 of Germany's best beaches, this Black Sea hotspot is a popular summertime destination. The town wakes up in July and August, thanks to long, sunny, and warm days. These perfect beach days are paired with high prices and bigger crowds, so if you prefer to avoid both, consider a trip in late spring or early fall. The weather is still lovely, but the prices and crowds are easier to navigate. Booking Baabe vacation rentals in winter offers the opportunity to explore some indoor activities, and see how the locals truly live.

Natural features

Perch upon the King's Chair and see the sea from above

Baabe sits on the edge of the Monchgut peninsula, which is a part of Germany's largest island, Rugen. The island is famous for its sandy beaches and thick forests, and the town is surrounded by both. It also borders the nearby Selliner Lake. Further north on the island, you'll find Jasmund National Park, with its famous white chalk cliffs, beechwood forests, and Konigsstuhl, or the "King's Chair." This natural attraction features a long platform that looks out over the Baltic Sea, perfect for seabird-watching and spotting the marine life from above.
