A low-key village on the edge of Germany

Situated on the island of Rugen just off Germany's northeast coast, this laid-back seafront town overlooks the Black Sea. Sellin also shares Germany's largest island with a variety of other towns, many of which are famous for their picturesque, sandy beaches. And like many of the other towns, you'll find a love for watersports here, including snorkeling, scubadiving, and sailing. Browse through the Sellin vacation rentals, and feel like you have 1 of Germany's best kept secrets all to yourself.

Spend yours days by the sea or by the See

It's likely that the majority of your time in Sellin will be spent in, on, or around the Black Sea. With kite-surfing, waterskiing, and windsurfing, Sellin vacation rentals offer tons for active travelers. If you prefer to laze a bit, book a boat tour and spend the day lounging on deck, or swimming in the clear waters. Off the sandy beaches and around the island, you'll find plenty of cycling and hiking trails through the forests. There are also a handful of scenic lookout points with panoramic views of the sea, as well as Selliner Lake.

Try seein' all there is to see in Sellin

With Sellin vacation rentals, you'll have access to all the island of Rugen has to offer. Explore the Monchgut Coastal Fishing Museum in nearby Baabe, or ride the historic Rasender Roland steamtrain between beaches. Tour the Erlebniswelt U-Boat naval museum in nearby Strassnitz, which is in the British submarine, HMS Otus. The Jasmund National Park is also well worth your time, famous for its beechwood forests and chalk cliffs, plus a lookout point and exhibits at the King's Chair visitor center. Whisk the kids off to the Alaris Butterfly Park, and stroll through houses full of fluttering tropical butterflies.

Spend your summers in sunny, seafront Sellin

Sellin's proximity to some of Germany's best beaches makes it an increasingly popular destination for summer travelers. The island feels like it wakes up in July and August, when you can enjoy long, sunny days. You may also find high prices and bigger crowds in the summer months, so if you're hoping to avoid both, plan your visit for late spring or early fall. You'll still find pleasant weather, but with lower prices and smaller crowds. Winters might not be the best time to visit Sellin, but you can still enjoy the local life and indoor activities.

Nab a bird's-eye view from the Konigsstuhl

Sellin lies at the start of the Monchgut peninsula, and is a part of the island of Rugen—Germany's largest. Rugen is famous for its sandy beaches and thick forests, and Sellin certainly has both. Along with the Black Sea, Sellin also borders the nearby Selliner Lake. North of both, you'll find Jasmund National Park. The park is full of beechwood forests, famous white chalk cliffs, and Konigsstuhl—the "King's Chair." Here's where you'll find a long viewing platform, overlooking the Baltic Sea. It's perfect for seabird-watching and spotting the marine life from above.
