The best trend sports on Rügen
Dear friends of Rügen,
There are also trends in sports! And of course Rügen is at the forefront of trend sports. Classic sailing, tennis, cycling or bowling are still a lot of fun. Thanks to the technical innovations of recent years, trendier possibilities and combinations for new sports have developed.
You like to roll along quietly on your bike, but pedalling sweatily is not your thing? Then simply rent an e-bike! You'll cycle swiftly through the countryside, just as quietly, but much less strenuously. Instead of swearing about headwinds and the next hill, you'll be happy about a breeze and the new view. This trendy sport is also a great opportunity for people with less fitness to become an enthusiastic cyclist!
At the AQUAMARIS Strandresidenz Rügen, you can not only rent bikes and e-bikes right on site, but also order a delicious packed lunch for your cycling trip. You can find all the information here.
If you like surfing or windsurfing, you will be thrilled by kite surfing. This mixture of kite flying and surfing is perfect for adrenaline junkies. Because the wind in the small kite provides speed and sets the direction. Shifting weight on the board and pulling on the kite strings enable turns and even jumps to glide and fly over the water.
On Rügen, beginners and professionals will find ideal conditions. Most surf schools offer kite courses for beginners and also provide the necessary equipment. Of course also at the AQUAMARIS Strandresidenz Rügen, where you can start your first attempts on the long sandy beach. Click here for more information.
Professionals will find new challenges with changing winds and choppy seas at the many surf hot spots on Rügen, e.g. in Groß Stresow. Or simply ask our water sports team where there are optimal conditions for real kite surfing pleasure off the beaten track.
SUP - Stand-up Paddling
Stand Up Paddling has become the new trend sport for many water sports enthusiasts all over Germany. SUP is a mixture of surfing and paddling. The athlete stands on a surfboard and moves around with the help of a paddle. This trains strength, endurance, sense of balance and body control and is great fun!
Rügen is an ideal spot for Stand Up Paddling fans. And not only for the already experienced paddlers who want to face the challenges of the open sea with wind and swell. SUP professionals also have a lot of fun with so-called Distance Stand Up Paddling: this involves covering long distances to beautiful, secluded stretches of coastline - a whole new way to discover Rügen.
For beginners, on the other hand, the calm Bodden waters are perfect for their first SUP attempts. In the calm, shallow waters, it is easy to master the first metres standing on the surfboard. Anyone who falls off the board here can easily get back on and try again.
For stand-up paddling, too, the surf schools on Rügen are the best place to go for beginners and advanced surfers.
Even though people have been diving with tanks for a long time, diving used to be a rather exclusive sport, which was thought of more as a distant destination in the Caribbean. In the meantime, diving has also become a popular sport in our latitudes. Literally diving into the underwater world with its colourful inhabitants is exciting and relaxing at the same time.
The diving area of Rügen is also rich in sunken shipwrecks to discover. Whether diving courses for beginners or dives for professionals, the diving centre at the AQUAMARIS Strandresidenz Rügen leaves nothing to be desired.
Whether trendy sports or classic hiking, swimming, sailing, windsurfing, tennis, golf and fishing: Rügen is a paradise for sports enthusiasts!
