Situated between the sea and the Bodden, at the National Park Vorpommersche Boddenlandschaft, Ahrenshoop is equally attractive for nature and art lovers. 

Experience the special flair of the picturesque seaside resort and artists' village of Ahrenshoop! For over 125 years, the contrasting landscape and the fascinating light conditions between the Baltic Sea and the Bodden have cast a spell on artists and those seeking relaxation. To this day, the town has remained true to its tradition as a former artists' colony and offers its guests a varied and demanding cultural programme in addition to a wide range of exhibitions in art houses and galleries. The sandy beach stretching from the steep shore to the western beach of Darß, the excellent bathing water quality of the Baltic Sea, the idyllic harbour on the Bodden and a well-developed network of cycling and hiking paths offer the best conditions for active recreation.
