Baltic Seaside Resort Sellin on island of Rügen

In the Baltic seaside resort Sellin forests by the coast, chalk cliff and the marvellous spa architecture happily celebrate their zest for life. The traditional seaside resort is situated directly by the forest “Granitz”. The sea bridge sparkles below the high cliff – the symbol of the isle of Rügen is as magnificent as it was more than hundred years ago. The „Wilhelmstraße“ leads directly to the sea; hotels and pensions, cafés and boutiques accompany it.

Sellin has kept up its charm of „Sommerfrische“ – the old style of regenerating in the healthy summer breeze by the sea. Many of the original buildings had been lovingly renovated. The fishing villages in the Sellin surroundings proudly care for their traditions. Therefore guests of the seaside resort Sellin find mundane spa life in 5-star hotels, as they find the rural idyll in friendly private quarters. And when residents party with their guests, everybody meets: at the polo event by the beach or on the harbour festival in Seedorf, on New Years Eve at the fireworks by the sea bridge or on the regional pottery market.

Two sandy beaches offer great bathing or stylish recreation in the beach chair. Beauty and health are attended by ambitious wellness-hotels. Experienced spa doctors support an outpatient cure in the mild bracing climate of the Baltic Sea. Classical concerts and contemporary art, an amber museum and the hunting castle of the former prince of Putbus cater for cultural inspiration.

The hilly surroundings of Sellin offer numerous opportunities for outings by bike or by feet. The whole year around guests may actively explore the landscape of the nature reserve Southeast-Rügen together with leisure partners of the spa authority. They may try out new sport activities or become a holiday ranger in summer.

Families enjoy a new adventure on every holiday. The winter ice rink and the leisure pool with sauna, a trip with the diving cabin or the narrow-gauge railway „Rasender Roland“ are unforgettable activities. Mini golf, festivals at the old windmill or a walk to find herbs are further exciting offers.
