Ahlbeck Baltic health resort

From fishing village to Imperial spa: Ahlbeck had only just been discovered as a seaside summer health resort in 1852 when the town, now the easternmost seaside health resort on the island of Usedom, welcomed its first guests.

Fisherman's cottages gave way to charming holiday homes and posh hotels, the promenade became the boulevard. Since 1898, the legendary landmark, the Ahlbeck pier, has towards skywards above the fine, white sandy beach with its four pretty turrets. The German humourist and cartoonist Loriot showed his admiration for the hundred-year-old structure in 1991, when he made it the backdrop for his comedy »Pappa ante Portas«.
