Football on an island

On the Isle of Hiddensee you can´t only enjoy the fresh air or the nice sights, you can also play football on the sport pitch in Vitte. When your children are bored about hiking, they can go there and play with other children. If there are more players you can play with them on the big field. And if there are not so many, you can play on the little field.  And when there are too many  people,you also can play volleyball on the beach.

The first thing you see when you arrive on the island is the harbor. There you will find the tourists information, the white fleet, a few shops, an ice cream shop, restaurants and fishing boats. There are not as many fishermen as earlier. The white fleet is the only company that brings you to the island and back.  A few meters further on is the marina, where all the sailboats, yachts and small boats are.

 

 Playground Vitte

That’s the playground in Vitte. There are a lot of children every day in the summer. And it’s also the meeting place of the kids.

Here you can climb on a little house or go on the swing. There are two see-saws: a big for adults and kids and the other one for young kids. Each playground on Hiddensee has got a story. In Kloster there is the story of Jona and the whale shown by the wood figures. The story of the fisherman and his wife is shown in Neuendorf and in Vitte you can see the story of the wishing table!

Next to the playground is the Homunkulus. You can eat ice-cream or watch dolls there.

    The beach

You can go to the beach! à We take our friends and have a lot of fun. The water is often warm in the summer, about 18 degrees and more, so you can swim in the Baltic Sea. The life guards watch over you, that you don’t drown. You can just lie on the beach, too. It is very fine that you can borrow beach chairs, but it’s rather for tourists. At the beach you can play beach-volleyball, of course.
