Destination guide

Slip into island time on Rügen

Forget visions of fairytale castles and gingerbread villages. Rügen will challenge everything you thought you knew about Germany. Set in the Baltic Sea, this picturesque island is surrounded by white sandy beaches, soaring sea cliffs and sparkling bays. Venture inland and you'll find grassy pastures and a patchwork of oak, chestnut and elm forests. The island has been luring vacationers since the 19th century, with the likes of Albert Einstein and Caspar David Friedrich escaping to its shores. While you could easily daytrip from Stralsund, Rügen vacation rentals will ensure you slip straight into island time.

Things to do

Explore Rügen's dramatic Jasmund National Park

Rügen's natural beauty is immortalized at Jasmund National Park, where you'll find dramatic seascapes like the King's Chair. A lofty viewing platform commands sweeping views over the chalky white cliffs. Resorts such as Sassnitz are a favorite with families, with a handful of attractions to explore. Don't miss HMS Otus, a Royal Navy Oberon-class submarine that now houses a fascinating maritime museum. Planning a family getaway to Sassnitz? With kitchenettes, spacious living areas and private patios, family-sized Rügen vacation rentals provide a dream setting for sun-splashed island escapes.


Sun, sand and smoked seafood in Rügen

For most visitors, Rügen represents an opportunity to escape the mainland and reconnect with nature. Rügen vacation rentals make it easy to recharge your batteries, with stone-clad cottages, complete with sunny terraces and gorgeous Baltic Sea views. For a lively scene, base yourself in Binz. The seaside resort lures sun seekers with sugar-white sand, Victorian villas and a breezy waterfront esplanade, also known as Strandpromenade. Unsurprisingly, Rügen reels in sumptuous seafood. Smoking fish since 1900, Fischraucherei Kuse is the island's signature fishmonger. Enjoy a meal on the terrace or head down to the beach for a seafood picnic.


Discover Rügen in every season

Most visitors arrive in the summer, when Rügen enjoys long days and warm weather. Temperatures hover around the 70s, which makes June, July and August ideal for swimming, sunbathing and beach hopping around the island. While it's not always warm enough to swim, spring and fall can be rewarding times to visit. Cooler weather is ideal for coastal hikes, scenic kayaking trips and seasonal bird-watching. In winter, why not bundle up for windswept beach walks and cozy nights by the fireplace?
