Putbus is situated about 130 miles (209 kilometers) north of Berlin, the country's capital.
While it can be tempting to simply sit back and relax while holidaying in Putbus, remember, Mecklenburg - West Pomerania's treasure-trove of scenic and cultural delights lie just beyond your doorstep. If you are keen to experience more of the region, head 8 miles (13 kilometers) to get to Ralswiek. Here you can pay a visit to the Ralswiek Open-air Theater and Ralswiek Marina.
Around 16 miles (26 kilometers) to the west of Putbus is Stralsund, an important regional city and the home of Nautineum, Prora Beach and HanseDom Stralsund. Marine Museum Stralsund, Nonnewitz Beach and Baabe Beach are good places to visit.
If the weather is fine, head outside to experience Mecklenburg - West Pomerania's gardens. Holy places are the best places to experience a region's spiritual traditions. The churches around Putbus are no exception.
Have some fun in the region's beautiful waterways with a spot of scuba diving or sea kayaking. In this hectic world, the ideal vacation is often all about taking the time to relax. When it's time to kick back, take your lead from the locals and try cycling or picnicking.
At the finish of your time in region, pack your baggage and wish Putbus "Tschüss" (farewell).
