Experience nature from the water
Even just the immediate area around our hotel is well worth a visit. That’s because the Peene, the longest river in Mecklenburg-West Pomerania after the Warnow, is Anklam’s historical lifeblood.
Today, the Peene and the Peene Valley represent the largest contiguous area of fenland in Central Europe. Its natural beauty is best explored from the water, either by canoe, rowing boat or motorboat.
You can rent boats in Anklam itself and in nearby Menzlin.
Our proximity to Germany’s biggest islands
The region’s stunning islands – Rügen and Usedom – and the Fischland-Darß-Zingst peninsula are particularly popular destinations for our guests. Here you can expect quaint tourist villages, sunny beaches and quiet paths through the woods.
The central location of our hotel means that you can reach your destination within a very short time:
- The island of Rügen is about an hour away by car. It is Germany’s biggest island and offers lots of sights, from the chalk cliffs to “Rasender Roland”, a traditional steam-powered railway.
- Usedom, nicknamed “Sun Island”, is just 25 km away from the hotel. As Germany’s second-largest island and the country’s sunniest spot, Usedom offers charming little towns and the longest beach promenade in Europe.
- You can be at the Fischland-Darß-Zingst peninsula in just an hour and a half. Here, too, you can find sunny beaches, relaxing holiday resorts and an idyllic natural backdrop.
From the hotel the region’s cultural centres
As well as destinations that attract beach-lovers and keen swimmers, the hotel is near places with great historical and cultural significance for the region. Here, too, you can find plenty of things to see.
The Hanseatic university town of Greifswald is 30 km away. In addition to the beautiful old town and Baroque buildings, there are many cultural attractions such as Theater Vorpommern and the State Museum of Pomerania. The ruins of Eldena Abbey and the former fishing settlement of Wieck are well worth a visit too.
The Hanseatic city of Stralsund, known as the “Gateway to Rügen”, is about an hour away by car. The architecturally and historically significant old town, with its Gothic brick buildings, is one of the most beautiful in the country and was declared a UNESCO World Heritage Site in 2002.
Stralsund’s monasteries and parks also make it an attractive day-trip destination. And that’s without the German Oceanographic Museum and Ozeaneum.
