The German part of the Baltic Sea has a lot to offer. Beautiful beaches, numerous islands in the vicinity of wild nature attract more and more holidaymakers from all over Europe each year. Among the enormous attractions that nature offers is Germany's largest island, Rügen, the tourist pearl of Mecklenburg-Vorpommern.


Welcome to Rügen!

Rügen is so crowded that in order to be able to spend your holiday there, you should remember to book your seats well in advance. The island is not only an area where we can devote ourselves entirely to blissful relaxation on the beach - it is also an excellent starting point for nearby spa centers. The healing properties of air saturated with iodine have long been appreciated by patients who come here to gain strength from Germany and other countries. Rügen is separated from the mainland by the narrow Strelasund Strait . In 1936, the Rügendamm rail-road bridge was built, and since 2007, Rügen can also be reached via a three-lane viaduct designed exclusively for car traffic - the 2,830-meter-long Rügenbrücke bridge, one of the longest in Central Europe.


Thanks to its varied coastline, crisscrossed by sandy beaches, cliffs, islets and countless lagoons, the island is the perfect destination for a holiday in Germany . Tourists visiting Rügen enjoy the opportunity to see the neighboring islands, including the beautiful Polish-German island of Usedom, with wide beaches and a long coastline, and a large number of smaller and larger lakes. What distinguishes Rügen is the well-developed network of bicycle paths. Ecology in this region comes first. Kilometers of marked paths provide many hours of active rest among the lush forests of the Świętowit region. Until the 12th century, Rügen was a place of worship of this pagan deity.

Resorts of Rügen

The interest in the island of tourists from Germany and abroad resulted in a rapid increase in the number of holiday resorts and the expansion of their offer. One of the most visited is the town of Bizn , located in the eastern part of Rügen. It is famous for its thermal brine pools and Święta Mola, which culminates in a spectacular fireworks display. During your vacation, you can also visit Sellin . Its almost 400-meter-long pier and numerous atmospheric restaurants and bars will allow tourists to enjoy their holidays on Rügen . About 16 km from Binz, there is another charming point worth paying more attention to - Thiessow . Literally translated, its name means "a place where yews grow", and the place itself is a perfect place to rest after a day of exploring the attractions of the island (including from the height of the bicycle seat). At regularly organized festivals, visitors have the opportunity to taste the specialties of the local cuisine and learn about regional handicrafts.


Camping in Thiessow

In addition to the picturesqueness and festivities, Thiessow also provides tourists with the opportunity to relax. Holidaymakers will find the accommodation at Campingplatz Thiessow , approx. 150 meters from the beach. The facility offers guests over 300 pitches for motorhomes, caravans or tents. In addition, it has a section designated especially for naturists. It has excellent sanitary facilities, including showers adapted to the needs of the disabled, as well as fully equipped laundry and dryers. After a day of lounging on the beach or exploring the island by bike (there is a rental shop on the premises), we can relax in a musical evening, use the barbecue area or go to one of the nearby restaurants serving local dishes. There is a playground for the youngest guests, and older children and adults can play, among others play ping pong or volleyball. They can also take advantage of the offer of sightseeing tours organized by local animators. The camping is pet friendly.
