The Town of Sassnitz

The town of Sassnitz is located on the Jasmund peninsula of Rügen island, on the South-east beach of the national park. The semi-circular coast consists almost exclusively of chalk.

The charming surroundings, the spa resort architecture of the old town, the special flair of the Sassnitz town harbour, and the nearby beaches make Sassnitz an ideal getaway.
