Originally a small fishing hamlet, Ahrenshoop was “discovered” by artists at the end of the 19th century and gradually reinvented as an artist colony and holiday resort – these days, it sees a number of tourists and celebrities on laid-back getaways. It’s not hard to see how its popularity grew: the breathtaking views of bays, small islands, and the open Baltic Sea itself inspire wonder in any visitor. There’s plenty of local culture to take in, from visits to museums, churches, and lighthouses to crane-watching excursions into the lagoons. Modern Ahrenshoop is a quiet destination for kicking back in the sands of the Baltic and meandering through Germany’s coastal beauty.

Location: A thin stretch of land, cradled by the Baltic

Part of the state of Mecklenburg-Vorpommern, Ahrenshoop is one of the six villages on northern Germany’s Fischland-Darss-Zingst peninsula. Originally three different islands, the sealing of floodwater channels created this modern landmass and the gorgeous views seen today. As part of the Western Pomerania Lagoon Area National Park, visitors will have access to well-developed trails leading to the magnificent beaches along the peninsula’s western edge.

Culture: The tempo of ocean life

Ahrenshoop’s art museum (Kunstmuseum Ahrenshoop) is itself a striking work of structural beauty – and there’s plenty more to see inside. The village has been a popular artist colony for decades, leading to distinctive buildings and fantastic works of art. Painters and photographers will find inspiration wherever they look – from the rolling waves to crashing waters against the groynes, to the gentle swaying of trees inland, and even the calm pace of local life, Ahrenshoop is an incredible place to discover the rhythms intrinsic to nature.

Activities: Seaside relaxation and exploration

No trip to Ahrenshoop is complete without time spent at the beach, and there’s plenty to do on the sand or the waves. Try participating in the sailing regattas, or simply observing from the shore (perhaps with a camera or paintbrush in hand). The national park of which the village is a part offers fantastic opportunities to explore islets, lagoons, and much more. In June, the Jazzfest attracts music lovers, and film enthusiasts get their money’s worth in September, when the annual film nights Filmnächte take place.
