Go for a leisurely stroll or a refreshing swim in the Baltic Sea at this extensive beach fronting one of Mecklenberg’s biggest and oldest seaside resorts.
Kuehlungsborn Beach is a popular destination for experiencing the beauty of the Baltic Sea. The long strand that marks the northern border of the town of Kuehlungsborn is perfect for a day of beach fun, as well as revitalizing the senses with fresh sea air and stunning ocean views. Whether you prefer laid-back or active pursuits, make the most of Kuehlungsborn’s therapeutic climate and enjoy the outdoors on Kuehlungsborn Beach.
Dig your toes into the soft sand. Kuehlungsborn Beach has a broad sandy shore that provides the perfect setting for unhurried wandering. Go for a walk along the shoreline and pick a pleasant spot to relax for a while. Lay out your towel or rent a strandkorb (covered beach chair) to get protection from the sun and wind. The beach’s broad expanse affords wide-open views of the Baltic Sea, so spend some time enjoying the panorama. If the sun is shining, go for a swim in the cool waters of the ocean. Look back toward the stunning 19th-century resort buildings situated along the waterfront.
On breezy days, you can choose from a wide range of activities on the beach. Try windsurfing, sailing or kite flying. Go jogging or cycling on the beachfront promenade that connects Kuehlungsborn Beach to the harbor at the east end of town. Check out the Kuehlungsborn Pier (Seebrücke Kühlungsborn) and dangle your legs off the boardwalk as you watch the boats sailing by on the horizon.
If you feel like having a meal, head to the Kuehlungsborn Harbor and choose from the collection of cafés and restaurants that face the marina. Specialties in the resort town include shrimp dishes and local currywurst. For a more casual option, get some takeout and enjoy a picnic back on the beach.
Kuehlungsborn Beach can be reached by bike or on foot from most areas in the compact resort town. You can also explore the town by old-fashioned steam railway, bus or car. The beach is accessible at any time of the day for free.
