This Holiday in a nutshell
  • self-guided hotel-to-hotel cycling holiday, luggage transported
  • eccentric charms of the Ostsee (Baltic Sea) coast
  • friendly, laid-back island with a timeless elegance
  • voyage of discovery on land and sea

We’re not quite sure what took us to Rügen, off the sunniest, north-easternmost corner of Germany, but we’re very glad we found it. This full-circle journey, beginning and ending in picturesque Stralsund on the mainland, will appeal to those with a sense of adventure and a yen for the unusual. On an island seemingly made for cycling, there are seaside eccentricities galore and a surprise – and delight – around every bend.
Handkerchiefs tend to be worn in blazer pockets rather than on heads. It’s a place where the sandcastle is still king and where the locals spend their afternoons talking to birds in thatched roofs and mending wicker baskets.
The Telegraph
A kooky-looking coastline offers white-sand beaches, towering chalk cliffs and fishing villages that exude charm and nostalgia; while a huge black submarine, Hitler’s vast and ghostly holiday camp and the odd spluttering Trabant hark back to half-hidden decades behind the Iron Curtain. Nowadays, the rows of iconic, striped Strandkörbe (ingenious contraptions that put normal deckchairs to shame), and Rasender Roland – the ‘Rushing Roland’ narrow-gauge steam train – are emblematic of a holiday hideaway that is held in great affection by Germans. Rügen is an unexpected delight.
