In summer, young people love to spend time at the beach: Swimmers, volleyball players, surfers or kitsurfers all enjoy the sand and sea. In the evenings, they can go to beach parties, organise campfires or barbecues or spend time together in the beach chairs – with a beer, a fish sandwich, a cocktail or finger food.
And the countryside has a lot of fun activities to offer as well: Falling out of the clouds, flying over the asphalt, racing and climbing, jumping and boarding, trekking, biking, paddling or rafting. For those who like it a little quieter, Western Pomerania’s pristine nature is ideal for contemplation, self-discovery, meditation and deep relaxation.
Hundreds of sports clubs welcome people all year round to come and play together, often in the fresh air. In addition to running, football and volleyball, many clubs offer countless water sports for beginners and professionals.
Students chill out in the quaint pubs of the region or in lounge clubs and bars. The town harbours are great places to have a barbecue and relax with a beer and sausages. Or to play Kubb, drink cocktails by the sea or enjoy the sunset with a Radler shandy.
In the high season, the holiday destination Western Pomerania turns into a show stage. Fancy and hip festivals take place at beaches, by lakes, in forests or on fields – a paradise for party people. Global stars perform on abandoned airfields and muddy meadows, whereas cosy clubs and old warehouses present the local heroes.
