Destination guide

This German Riviera gem is a right belter

A bustling family resort on Germany's Baltic Coast, Boltenhagen is a real gem of the German Riviera. Get your German adventure off to the best start by booking a beautiful Boltenhagen vacation rental with sea views. This buzzy seaside town has stacks of family appeal, whether it's building sandcastles on the beach or paddling in the shallow cool waters. Nearby, visit Bothmer Castle, or venture into the historic town of Wismar, a 30-minute drive away. As the sun sets, why not stroll along the boardwalk, which is dotted with bars and cozy restaurants.

Things to do

Out for the Count in Boltenhagen

Boltenhagen is well located for many of the sights in the area. It's a 30-minute drive from the charming town of Wismar, which is famous for its UNESCO-listed Old Town. Just 3 miles inland from the beach is Bothmer Castle. Built for Count Hans Caspar von Bothmer in the 1700s, this handsome, baroque-era palace houses a museum and ornamental gardens. Time your visit right and you could catch one of the fantastic classical music concerts held in the grounds each summer.

Activities

Boats, beer and building sandcastles, Boltenhagen has it all

Boltenhagen is a typical seaside town, and life tends to revolve around the beach and the boardwalk. Follow the flow of the families who flock here each season, and pack a picnic and spend the day building sandcastles on the beach, or swimming in the cool Baltic waters. If you prefer to spend your days on the water rather than in it, then head to the Boltenhagen Pier and book a boat trip. As the days close, head back to your Boltenhagen vacation rental with a bottle or two of local brew and toast the sunset.

Weather

Remember it's Boltenhagen not the Bahamas

Now don't go confusing Boltenhagen with the Bahamas, because the weather is not quite as balmy. But time it right and you'll see blue skies and endless sunshine. Peak season is June, July, and August when temperatures can reach 70 degrees and above, although the odd rain shower may fall. This is also the busiest time of year to visit, and Boltenhagen vacation rentals can get snapped up well in advance. The low season is winter, when the brusque winds draw in off the Baltic Sea and it can get bitterly cold, so pack plenty of extra layers.

Natural features

The bikers and hikers of the Baltic Coast

Overlooking the steely Baltic Sea, Boltenhagen is a buzzy seaside town on the northeastern coast of Germany. It's within easy reach of Lubeck and Wismar. This part of the coast is a popular area for hikers and mountain bikers. One of the busier walking trails runs from the beach in Boltenhagen and follows the coast for 7 miles down to Klutz. There's also a cycling path which runs from Wismar to Wolgast, called the Baltic Sea Cycle Path, which promises sweeping views of the Baltic Sea.
