Port information

(c) Mukran Port


Welcome to Sassniz, a traditional port town between the rocky chalk cliffs and sandy beaches of Ruegen island! The impressive chalk coast with its primeval beech forest located at the Jasmund Nation Park is part of the UNESCO World Heritage. It starts directly at the edge of town, which makes Sassnitz an ideal starting point for cycling and hiking tours into nature. Sassnitz originates from a small fishing village and a nearby farming village, which were merged into a town turned into popular spa resort at the 19th century. It is well-known for ist beautiful villas built in the style of the seaside-resort architecture. Artisian workshops, ship chandlers and sail makers, museums and shops with regional products are to be found beside the fish shop and fish restaurants. A stroll along the longest outer mole of Europe with its 1,444 metres across the Baltic Sea will be rewarded by a tasty marinated or smoked fish bun.
