Come on, let’s discover the Bay of Mecklenburg!
The Mecklenburg Bay is not only a very family-friendly recreation area, but there is also a lot to discover here. Cities like Rostock or Lübeck and attractions like the Ozeaneum, the Sea Life or the Hansa Park offer great destinations for family vacations on the Baltic Sea. But also for families who want to take it easy, there are many great ways to use the area to switch off! How about camping in the Bay of Mecklenburg, for example? There is no better way to relate to nature on vacation with your children! If it is simply a vacation less influenced by external influences, then a vacation rental is also a great option for a vacation in the Mecklenburg Bay!
Discover coastal cities
As already mentioned, the various Hanseatic cities in the Mecklenburg Bay are especially worthwhile as great excursion destinations while on vacation with the family! Lübeck, Rostock and Wismar stand out particularly. In Lübeck, for example, there is the largest German Baltic Sea port, which invites you and your kids to watch the impressive shipping traffic – small captains will be more than thrilled by the large ships! Also worth seeing is the beautiful old town in Lübeck, which has even been declared a UNESCO World Heritage Site.
The largest city in Mecklenburg-Vorpommern is Rostock! Here, too, all ship-interested holidaymakers will get their money’s worth, because the city is an influential port city and will be able to inspire you with all the important information about shipping and shipbuilding. But in general you can also expect a wide range of cultural and leisure activities in Rostock, which has great activities for all ages.
Another nice change on a family vacation is a trip to Wismar. The historic old town is another UNESCO World Heritage in the Bay of Mecklenburg and has various sights for you and your family. Visit the old port, the Fürstenhof or the market square, which is considered one of the largest in northern Germany.
Relaxation by the sea
For a relaxing holiday with the family by the sea, it is of course ideal if you are looking for a family hotel near the beach and what could be better than one of the many seaside resorts along the Mecklenburg Bay! These cultural and architectural features of the region are remnants of bygone times and invite you to relax and unwind! Here you simply have to enjoy the fresh air and sea water in the beach chair. The kids can romp in the sand or in the water at the same time.
A particularly well-known section of the beach is Timmendorfer Strand: here it is not only about enjoying the sun, but also making the Wibit WaterSports Park unsafe. Events with live music and sporting events are also part of the program at Timmendorfer Strand.
In general, the main thing in Mecklenburg Bay is to enjoy the beach and the sea! For this reason, you also have the opportunity to deal with a wide variety of water sports. Go surfing, go water skiing or go on a sailing turn with the kids on vacation or find deep relaxation while deep sea fishing – the Baltic Sea is ready for any hobby! A family vacation in the Mecklenburg Bay is therefore always a good idea!
Out into the region
If you are not only attracted to the beach, you can also explore the coastal regions in other ways. Great excursions in the Mecklenburg Bay can also be undertaken in the course of hikes or bike tours. Numerous lighthouses along the beaches invite you to take exciting trips around the area.
Special moments with the family await you on adventure excursions in the area. For you and your kids, great attractions such as potato sack slides, "The flying cowshed", cable cars, bouncy cushions, a go-kart track and a children’s farm with pigs, goats, ponies and cows await you in Karl’s adventure village in Rövershagen.
For a day trip, there is a side trip to the island to reprimand where you can visit the Störtebeker Festival during the summer months. Here you can expect an exciting play on one of the largest open-air stages in Europe and the best, after each performance you can look forward to impressive fireworks in the evening. But closer island destinations should also be at the top of your list as excursions during a vacation in the Mecklenburg Bay. You can also explore the islands of Poel, Walfisch and Langenwerder with your children.
A real adventure and experience trip is a detour to Hansa Park, where many exciting rides await visitors of all ages. No matter whether you want to take an exciting roller coaster ride on the "Rasenden Roland" or on "Nessi" or want to experience a refreshing experience on one of the water rides such as on the "Super Splash" – fun is guaranteed in any case. The "Highlander" freefall rounds off your adrenaline-fueled excursion in the Bay of Mecklenburg.
Experience underwater worlds
Experiences that your kids will love are guaranteed in the Ozeaneum in Stralsund. Here you can visit the impressive penguin facility and even take on penguin sponsorships. In several aquariums you can observe the most diverse underwater inhabitants and learn about the ocean, historical and scientific aspects in various exhibitions.
Sea Life Timmendorfer Strand is also all about the inhabitants of the sea. Over 2500 animals live in a variety of pools, including sea turtles, starfish, octopuses, seahorses, pygmy otters and blacktip reef sharks. The interactive experience area, in which a touch pool and microscopes are available, is certainly interesting for all small researchers, so that they can really experience and get to know the underwater world up close.
Living things of all kinds
For even more Animal experiences on the Baltic Sea are provided during the family vacation in the Mecklenburg Bay with the Rostock Zoo. Stroll through the historical park landscape and experience up to 4,200 animals up close. Let’s go to the Tropenhalle or the Polarium!

In Grömitz you also have the opportunity to take a short detour to the zoo, here it is the Zoo-Park Arche Noah, which in addition to cute animals also has a small adventure playground, pony rides and a children’s train for you and ensures variety on family holidays!
If you are particularly interested in birds, go on an excursion further inland with the kids and visit the Marlow Bird Park, where there is also a petting zoo and an adventure playground for you and the kids. Spend a relaxing and unforgettable family vacation in the Mecklenburg Bay and enjoy the Baltic Sea to the fullest!
