Bimmelbahn (tourist toy train)
There are hourly trips from the Seebrücke with this small tourist toy train in the warm season. On certain days they also do longer trips. Please inquire at the tourist information for the schedule.
Take a leisurely ride
In a horse drawn carriage like in the long gone times. We saw such a horse drawn carriage and the coachman pointed out the sights and explained them. An hour costs around 50 Euro and has to be booked ahead.
The clock was donated in 1911 by a wealthy guest. It is situated on the square in front of the pier and is built in art nouveau style.
The highlight of Bad Ahlbeck is the pier. Close to the beach there is the restaurant with outdoor seating but you can walk around both sides of the restaurant to the end of the pier where you will find the landing station for the excursion ships. The pier has been fully...
The church is located on a slight hill in Bad Ahlbeck. It dates back to 1895 and is built in the neo Gothic style. Sometimes they have concerts too.Coming from sea promenade you can walk through a small park to get there. If you stand in front of the church, you will find a...

At least in summer you may travel to Bad Ahlbeck by excursion ship from other towns along the island of Usedom. Some ships also go to Swinemuende (Swinoujcie) in Poland.
You can easily get to Ahlbeck
If you are in Germany, you can easily come to Ahlbeck by car or by train. And if you're in Poland, you can come here by a tourist ship or a bus, which connect Ahlbeck with Miedzyzdroje (Misdroy) and Swinoujscie (Swinemunde).
Walking along the beach we saw a lot of roofed wicker beach chairs which can be rented for any length of time. They all have a number and you can sort of lock them up so that nobody can use them otherwise.
When you come walking from Poland then you may see a sign announcing a nudist beach 300 meters further on. We came on a not so warm day so we saw it hardly in use. But if you are bothered by the nudists, then I recommed that you walk elsewhere i.e. further inland along the...
Dogs are generally welcome in Bad Ahlbeck but mind where your dog does his business. It’s not allowed just anywhere and please pick it up and dispose of it properly.There is also a portion of the beach reserved for people with dogs. It’s located towards Poland and the nudist...
How to get Euro?!
We arrived on foot from Poland and hadn’t planned to go come to Germany on our day trip, so we didn’t have any Euro with us. I thought that this wouldn’t be a problem and expected to see some ATM somewhere. But we never saw one as the ATMs must have been hiding from us. This meant that I couldn’t buy any ice cream nor drinks which was somewhat frustrating because I thought that visiting such a beach resort is more fun with having an ice cream on the sea promenade or a drink on the pier.
So, always carry 5 or 10 Euro with you even when you don't plan to hop across the border!
