Usedom The Essential
Usedom is Germany's easternmost island and with 445km²/172sq mi it is the largest after Rügen. The eastern part of the island belongs to Poland. Usedom boasts wonderfully unspoilt natural landscapes alternating between marshland, inland seas, forest, dunes, sandy beaches and some cliffs. Its main industry is tourism, nurtured by the development of the elegant bathing resorts on the Baltic after 1820.
