The Baltic resort of Karlshagen on Usedom is a sporty holiday paradise for the whole family
Familiar, sporty and maritime - this is how Karlshagen in the north of the island of Usedom presents itself. Here the fine, white sandy beach is up to 80 metres wide, the Baltic Sea shallow and thus warmed up by the sun faster than elsewhere. It's a holiday paradise for families, fortress builders, bathing mermaids and sun worshippers.
Child-friendliness is not only written in capital letters here, it is also lived. So it is more than fitting that Karlshagen is the only place on the entire Baltic coast to have its own children's spa director. The young woman from Karlshagen regularly offers consultation hours for her young guests in the summer and, together with her "Kids for Kids Team", puts a lot of things together for families.
Being woken up by the sound of waves: Situated in the middle of a pine grove, directly behind the dunes of the fantastically wide Baltic Sea beach is the 5***** camping site Dünencamp. The alarm clock here knows only one melody for the year-round campers: a soothing sound of the sea.
Karlshagen Ahoy: Karlshagen also has a name among water sports enthusiasts. The marina has become one of the largest moorings on the island. From here you can set sail for the neighbouring island of Oie or for a sailing trip on the Peene River and into the Achterwasser. Sea air makes you hungry, so a freshly caught fish sandwich at the idyllic marina is an even greater treat afterwards.
...what interests anglers: Karlshagen lies in the area where the Peene River flows into the Greifswald Bodden. This area is one of the best German fishing grounds. The mixture of salt and fresh water promises a colourful mix of species and allows some to grow into true giants. From the boat, crocodile-calibre pike bite here. In summer, great big zander and fat perch are hooked alongside pike.
The Baltic Sea on one side, the Peene River on the other, dense forests here, the smell of the sea there: Karlshagen offers a holiday experience for the whole family 365 days a year.
