The island of Hiddensee is located in front of the island of Rügen and part of the national park Vorpommersche Boddenlandschaft. The car-free island can be reached via Stralsund or Schaprode (Rügen). From here several times daily line ships and at any time of the day and night water taxis to Neuendorf, Kloster and Vitte.
Neuendorf in the very south is the quietest village on Hiddensee and is completely listed. The inhabitants of Neuendorf with its district Plogshagen are also called "De Süder". The original character of the old fishing village has hardly changed over the centuries: whitewashed thatched houses on green meadows still characterize the townscape. There are no centers, no fences, but trails, wide sandy beaches and plenty of space. Also, the usual gardens and boundaries are missing, almost all the houses there are free and spacious in the landscape, with the broad and entrance side facing south. The northernmost row of houses in Neuendorf is called "Schabernack".
For Gerhart Hauptmann, Thomas Mann and Albert Einstein Hiddensee was the jewel of the Baltic Sea. For many years, the island was home to the poet captain and is his final resting place. Even today, Hiddensee is a haven for peace-seeking artists. Vitte, the largest fishing village on Hiddensee, has retained its maritime originality and is characterized by thatched roof houses, local fishing businesses, horse-drawn carriages and inviting restaurants. In summer, the car-free, family-friendly island offers peace and relaxation as well as all imaginable water sports. But even in winter, the idyllic island is worth a trip. The fresh sea air is especially for guests with respiratory diseases in all seasons a real treat.
