Sailing on the Baltic Sea

Go on sailing trips in the sailing area of Vorpommern, explore natural harbours and marinas and experience unforgettable landscapes and encounters on land. Here on the Baltic Sea coast you can sail and co-sail in a totally relaxed and safe way.

Sail and land in a cosy harbour

There are fantastic sailing areas along the Baltic Sea - including in Vorpommern. Raise the sails and discover the southern Baltic Sea in Mecklenburg-Vorpommern from the water side during your holidays. You can either sail on board or enjoy a chartered boat as an experienced sailor - let yourself drift with the sailing offers or make new records on your own trips. Discover the islands of Rügen, Hiddensee and Usedom, the Barth, Stralsund and Greifswald bays or sail up the Peene river and the Achterwasser and enjoy the hospitality on historical estates, in manors, at fish markets, in restaurants and real harbour taverns.

By the way, you can also easily explore the entire southern Baltic Sea from here!

There is a wide and varied choice of harbours. You can choose from small, idyllic natural harbours, quietly located and far away from any tourist crowds, or certified luxury marinas with a wide range of services for your sailing yacht and sophisticated gastronomy. It' s up to you to decide whether you want to relax or enjoy the action.
For those who want to get off the boat, there are also various possibilities. The piers in the Hanseatic towns of Greifswald, Stralsund, Anklam or Wolgast are usually only a few minutes' walk from the heart of town. And the national park Vorpommersche Boddenlandschaft as well as the nature parks Flusslandschaft Peenetal and Am Stettiner Haff provide a paradise for experiencing nature, and not just for birdwatchers.

Sailing and co-sailing on the Baltic Sea

You have all options, whether you want to sail as an experienced skipper, learn the sailor's skills or just get a taste of the sea air on a sailing trip during your holiday. In many harbours in Vorpommern you can board and sail actively on historic traditional sailboats such as the sail training ship "Greif", the former flat-bottomed boat "Weisse Düne" or a traditional Zeesboat on the Szczecin Lagoon. Here you can learn the first nautical skills, whether in theory or during a sailing tour, so that you will one day be able to sail your own boat and go on a great voyage. One thing in advance: The nautical knot tying is not intended to spin a sailor's yarn.

Depending on how ready you feel for the sea, you can sail a day trip, a weekend trip, a multi-day trip or take part in annual regattas and events such as the Hansesail in Rostock. You can choose between a cabin charter on a white yacht to sail along with the whole family or active sailing through the tides of the Baltic Sea in all weathers. Clothing suitable for the weather and a warm meal are provided on board.

The Baltic Sea region between Rügen and the Szczecin Lagoon has plenty of opportunities for inexperienced sailors and those who want to become skippers on their own sailing boats. Sailing schools offer a wide range of activities, not only for traditional sailing. Also kayaking tours, kite surfing or other water sports are becoming more and more popular. In some sailing schools you can rent the necessary equipment on the spot and thus test out other water activities.

Going on land in Vorpommern

From relaxed sailing with a mild wind and sunshine to fun and thrilling sailing with gusts of wind at 45° to the water's surface - the weather decides how much fun your sailing trip will be. If you have a problem with the weather or if your crew starts to mutiny after days at sea, you can take a break from your sailing trip through the waters of the Baltic Sea. Put in a break in a harbour of Stralsund, Greifswald, Wolgast, Anklam or Ueckermünde. Here you can explore the region wonderfully both on foot and by bike.

  • University & Hanseatic City of Greifswald
  • Hanseatic City of Stralsund (UNESCO World Heritage Site)

Your crew, no matter what age, can enjoy historical city centres on the Baltic Sea, characterised by numerous treasures of culture and architecture. In the Hansa town of Stralsund you can follow the traces of the Hanseatic League and see history come to life in buildings, museums and numerous sights. In the university and Hanseatic town of Greifswald you can familiarise yourself with and experience the sailing tradition. Here you can dock in Germany's largest museum harbour and explore Greifswald's old town, just a few minutes' walk away, on your own or on guided tours. From here you can also set sail for Wolgast, Demmin or Anklam. This sailing area offers a wide variety of things to see and do. In addition, it provides great starting points for excursions into the surrounding areas. Discover numerous estates and manor houses, spa oases and culinary attractions on the Baltic Sea. Activities and sights that cannot be experienced on a boat trip, yet are too far away for a walk, can be easily reached by bicycle or e-bike.

Nearby seaside resorts are also worth a visit. Ueckermünde as the tourist centre of the Szczecin Lagoon is close to nature and ideally suited for active recreation. Although this is the youngest seaside resort in Mecklenburg-Vorpommern, it is equally interesting through its charmingly restored old town. Further away from the tourist crowds, in the seaside resort of Lubmin you can rest wonderfully on the five-kilometre-long, fine sandy beach, engage in activities in one of the sports facilities or saddle up on horses at the horseriding yard. Lubmin, with its famous seaside bridge, also offers a range of events such as concerts, beach feasts and opportunities to experience traditional handcrafts. Fishery is one example of such a tradition at the Baltic Sea. Seize the moment and chat with fishermen who know their fishing grounds in the Baltic Sea like the back of their hand. They will tell you which restaurants offer freshly caught fish or simply inform you about the weather. 

Well, that's enough chit-chat. Now it's time to set sail and cast off! All Hands On Deck - have fun! May you always have good wind and a hand's width of water under your keel!
