Seaside health spas

In the seven seaside health spas of Mecklenburg-Western Pomerania, which are characterised by a stylish and romantic flair, Thalassotherapy (sea treatment) and rehabilitation clinics are offered all year round. They have a traditional seaside character with maritime charm, from cosy fishermen's houses to the spa architecture.

The quality characteristics of a seaside health spa include +

a) being situated on the sea coast; the centre is in principle no more than two kilometres from the coast line,

b) scientifically recognised and experientially proven, therapeutically applicable climate and a corresponding air quality, which are monitored,

c) at least one spa doctor’s practice,

d) facilities for the provision and application of spa treatments,

e) proper bathing water quality at a well-kept and guarded beach, which is monitored,

f) beach promenades, parks as well as beach or countryside paths sufficiently undisturbed by traffic, opportunities for games and sport.

g) dietary advice during the spa time; the employment of at least one dietician in hospitals and dietary cuisine.

h) communication and information facility.
