Sellin, Seebrucke


Sellin, The pier and the "Tauchgondel" a divingbell, it costs 5EUR, but it's not worth it, it's shaky and a not very pleasant experience to dive
down into the water in that thing. You see nothing but turbid water there, they show a 3d movie though.


Sellin, Haus Vergissmeinnicht.


Sellin, Granitzer Strasse


Sellin, Post Office


Sellin, The Miramar Hotel



Sellin, Seepark rental apartments

Wow, some of the architecture very much reminded me of what you'd find on the Princes' Islands near Istanbul. :cheers:

Yes, and beyond Germany too it seems. The resort Princes Islands have very similar architecture. It was the 'summer playground' for the Ottoman Empire's wealthy Greeks and Armenians who built strikingly similar type houses and other buildings there.

Check out this book by a German writer on the islands, which no doubt would also be in German.

Back in Binz, unfortunately the weather was cloudy this day.


Jasmunder Strasse


There is a lot of people and traffic in this small resort-town.


There is always something going on here at the Hauptstrasse.


Here people relax at the Strandpromenade. Notice the sandcastle, it's a model of the Kurhaus.


The beach


There are a lot of hotels in Binz.


The Kurhaus is the most exclusive hotel in Binz.


The Baltic Sea


A cruiseship, photo taken with my cellphone.


Another cellphone photo. Vacation Apartments for rent


Luxury apartments on the Putbuser strasse


A train has arrived at Binz East. Not many towns with pop. 5000 have two separate railway stations.

Looks nice! Have been to Sassnitz, but not Binz.

This is Sassnitz. Since the ferry harbour moved to Mukran, the town has become a little more touristy
with several outdoor cafés along the docks. Sassnitz seems a little sleepy compared to Binz though.


Sassnitz seen from the ferry.



This is what most swedish people see of Sassnitz, the ferry harbor in Mukran.
