Silversea Luxury Cruises A Sassnitz

A hybrid of two rural personalities, Sassnitz is the fusion of a small fishing village and its neighbouring farming community. United over a hundred years ago, the initial differences coming from the two communities have been turned into strengths and Sassnitz today is a charming, lively hamlet. The only harbour village on Rügen Island, Sassnitz is both a thriving community and also the beating heart of the island.

But perhaps the most impressive thing about Sassnitz are the Königsstuhl chalk cliffs bordering the town. View more

Illustrating the dynamic coastal erosion of the region, the cliffs act as a huge natural wind breaker for the beach, so along with the unique south-eastern placement, the village enjoys clement temperatures and ergo a holiday ambiance much of the year.

With modernisation in recent years, the town has connected the beautiful old-town to the harbour by a dramatic 912 feet/278 metre long footbridge. A superb feat of engineering (and perhaps to be avoided if you suffer from vertigo), the bridge offers unsurpassed panoramic views from its 292 feet/80 meter high location. Although Sassnitz seems to be on the cusp of developing further, the footbridge has added a considerable dimension to the little village with cafés, art galleries, bars and restaurants sprouting up at its base, making any further development look promising.
