Fodor's Review

At the northwest tip of Usedom, 16 km (10 miles) from land-side Wolgast, is the launch site of the world's first jet rockets, the V1 and V2, developed by Germany during World War II. You can view these rockets as well as models of early airplanes and ships at the extensive

Das Historisch-Technische Museum Peenemünde. At this museum housed in the former factory power plant, one exhibit in particular covers the moral responsibility of scientists who develop

new technology, by focusing on the secret plants where most of the rocket parts were assembled and where thousands of slave laborers died. Explanations of the exhibits in English are available. Im Kraftwerk, 17449. 038371/5050. www.peenemuende.de. €8. Apr.–Sept., daily 10–6; Oct.–Mar., daily 10–4; Nov.–Feb., Tues.–Sun. 10–4.
