Hiddensee is a small island west of Rügen, only about 19 km² in size. The island is completely car-free and can be reached by a short ferry ride. Hiddensee is protected and has been part of the national park "Vorpommersche Bodenlandschaft" since 1990. Here you might be lucky to catch a glimpse of one of the endangered bird species such as the Little Tern. Between June and September there are regular guided tours of the island. Hiddensee is also home to a small fishing museum, which is well worth a visit when you're on summer holiday in northern Germany.
