GERMANY’S BALTIC TERRITORY – 2018 OFFICIAL PARTNER REGION OF ITB BERLIN

When planning holidays in Europe, Mecklenburg Vorpommern would in most cases not immediately come to mind. But that might change soon, as the region is this year’s of cial partner of ITB Berlin.

Generally, each year, ITB Berlin has an of cial partner country, so this year’s initiative by the Northern German coastal region in becoming official overall partner of the show is seen as a major move in stepping into the global spotlight, with the resulting almost guaranteed growth in tourism that stems from such a partnership.

Fine white sandy beaches, romantic bays, and crystal-clear water ensure untarnished pleasure when bathing and swimming in Mecklenburg Vorpommern. And the sun is also particularly friendly to the region. The wind, surf, current and salt content are more pleasant on the Baltic Sea than on the Atlantic. And as opposed to the North Sea it does not constantly disappear, as here there are no tides. No wonder that Mecklenburg- Vorpommern effectively invented sea bathing… and more than 200 years ago at that, when the duke of Mecklenburg bravely went into the refreshing water in the year 1793 in Heiligendamm and established the first seaside resort of continental Europe in this place.
