Heringsdorf is the famous seaside resort Kaiserbad on Usedom Island on the German Baltic Sea Coast bordering the Polish city of Świnoujście (Swinemünde). It is composed of the three spa areas known as Ahlbeck, Bansin and Heringsdorf (which forms the center).

Get in

Usedom is well-connected for travellers throughout the year. The Usedomer Bäderbahn (UBB) connects the island from Stralsund via Wolgast to Swinemünde. Bridges connect the island via the federal streets Züstrin (B 110) and in Wolgast (B111). Heringsdorf has a regional airport that connects cities as far away as Zurich and Vienna during the summer. The airport is connected to the beaches by bus.

Drink

Heringsdorf, Ahlbeck and Bansin each have their own distinctive centers with a nightlife of their own. Don't expect too many wild parties though, as they have a rather laidback flair with elegant lounges, cozy pubs and intimate music venues. Bordering Świnoujście (nicknamed "Swini") is known for its colourful nightlife with various dancing clubs.
