Welcome to Usedom Island
Usedom (Uznam in Polish) lies in the delta of the Oder River about 30km east of Greifswald; the island’s eastern tip sits across the border in Poland. Although the German side accounts for 373 sq km of the island’s total 445 sq km, the population of the Polish side is larger (45,000, compared with 31,500 on the German side).
Woodsy bike and hiking trails abound. Elegant 1920s villas with wrought-iron balconies grace many traditional resorts along its northern spine, including Zinnowitz, Ückeritz, Bansin, Heringsdorf and Ahlbeck.
