Fischland-Darß-Zingst is a peninsula and beautiful holiday destination on Germany’s Baltic Sea coast. It’s composed of three different regions, Fischland, Darß and Zingst, with the latter found at the easternmost tip. Visitors head for Fischland-Darß-Zingst self-catering holiday rentals to experience stunning coastal scenery, picturesque villages and beaches.
The wonderful shoreline is the main attraction for visitors to Fischland-Darß-Zingst self-catering holiday accommodation, and it extends for 60 kilometres, with fine, white sandy beaches, ideal for families. The Baltic Sea is celebrated for its cleanliness, and in the summer offers bracing waters for a dip when the weather is at its warmest.
For instance, you could make for Prerow from your Fischland-Darß-Zingst self-catering holiday rental to enjoy the resort’s five kilometre-long, 100-metre-wide beach. This stretch of coast is sheltered from the wind, and the resort itself has been frequented as a summer getaway for more than 130 years. Also here is a huge pier and long promenade, complete with shops, cafes and restaurants. From this town you could set off on a bike or walking trip to explore the protected landscapes all around.
Lying between the peninsula and the mainland are three lagoons, protected as part of the wider Western Pomerania Lagoon Area National Park. The lagoons have very shallow waters and provide a key resting area for a wealth of avian species, including geese and cranes, which are especially visible in the area during the autumn months.
During your holiday at a Fischland-Darß-Zingst villa you could make the short trip to the town of Ribnitz-Damgarten, which historically was an important centre for the manufacture of decorative items from amber, and as a result was known as Amber Town. The Baltic Sea has always been an important source of amber, with pieces continuing to wash up on the beaches here, and in Ribnitz you can visit the German Amber Museum.
The Baltic Sea coast is home to some of the sunniest locations in all of Germany, with close on 2,000 hours of sun expected per year at self-catering holiday rentals per year on Fischland-Darß-Zingst. The warmest months are from June to September, when you can expect a great deal of beach weather. Temperatures drop quite dramtically in winter, and there are a few snowy cold snaps at this time of year.
From the UK you could reach Fischland-Darß-Zingst self-catering accommodation by flying to Stuttgart (STR) or Cologne (CGN), and then connecting to Rostock Airport (RLG). Alternatively there’s Lübeck Airport, which sits two hours away by car, and is served by Ryanair flying from London-Stansted.
