Fodor's Review

Just 5 km (3 miles) off the northwest corner of Rügen is a smaller island called Hiddensee. The undisturbed solitude of this sticklike island has attracted such visitors as Albert Einstein, Thomas Mann, Rainer Maria Rilke, and Sigmund Freud. As Hiddensee is an auto-free zone, leave your car in Schaprode, 21 km (13 miles) west of Bergen, and take a ferry. Reederei Hiddensee (03831/268–116; www.reederei-hiddensee.de) makes the 45-minute trip from Schapröde on Rugen to Vitte on Hiddensee eight times a day, with other departures from Stralsund. They also serve the towns of Kloster and Neuendorf on Hiddensee. Fares start at €15.50. Vacation cottages and restaurants are on the island.
