On Rügen Island
, Germany’s biggest, you’ll find some of the best sailing spots in the Baltic Sea
. The whole region has a very mellow feel, as well as a rustic appeal, despite the fact that most the ports handle a considerable amount of commercial freight. German Yacht Charter can be found here in their boats all year round.
The Breege region is actually a municipality in the Rügen district in Northern Germany
and is comprised of several villages: Breege, Juliusruh, Kammin, Lobkevitz and Schmantevitz. It’s located on the north part of the island and manages to blend the marine landscape with the ruggedness of a wooded area.
Travel & Arrival
While this is a tourist-friendly region, it is somewhat off the beaten track. That’s why you’ll find no international airport here. The closest air terminal is Ruegen Airport 42 km away which only makes local flights. There is a special link to Hamburg airport which is the closest international airport, so there is the possibility of getting your Yacht Charter group here by plane.
There aren’t many roads running through the Rügen island so you won’t have a lot of trouble finding your way. The only major road leading into Breege is the 96 road which connects with the E251 and the E22 near Bergen
auf Rügen. This is the same road Yacht Charter travelers take from the mainland to the island.
Avant & Apres Sail
Yacht Charter people who come here, do it for the peace and tranquility of the region as well as for the healthy climate, known for decades to be beneficial in a number of conditions. However, while traveling here, you’ll notice that the days won’t go by uneventfully, as there are some astonishing things to see. There is the lighthouse at Cape Arkona, the Jasmunder National Park with its famous chalk cliffs that are a symbol of the entire region and the Granitz hunting lodge.
The accommodation varies from apartments and guesthouses to hotels. It all depends on the Yacht Charter client’s budget and needs. There is even an option if you’re traveling with your four-legged pet, but it’s best to check ahead as not all facilities provide pet accommodations.
Food in Breegen is centered around the smoked fish which is considered a local specialty and delicacy by the many hungry Yacht Charter tourists. Most restaurants will serve this dish, as well as other sea-related recipes. With names like “Aquamaris”, “Mayday”, “The Old Fisherman”, “On Water” and “Baltic Pearl” it’s pretty clear what your dining options are here. Oh, and let’s not forget the famous beer which is liberally served and enjoyed by tourists and locals alike.
Events & Actions
The weekly markets can be considered as events as they regularly draw Yacht Charter crowds of interested shoppers or just people browsing around. The most important market is the one held on Christmas Week. On Christmas day the locals celebrate with beach bonfires and mulled wine over a festive roast dinner. You’re of course invited.
