Widely recognized as a symbol of Usedom Island, the pier in Ahlbeck originates from the 19 th century like most of the nearby villas, whose architecture is typical for holiday resorts of that period.
The Ahlbeck pier is considered the landmark of the island of Usedom and, like most of the nearby spa architecture villas, dates from the century before last.
Built in 1898, the "Centenarian" with its red roof, the four green towers and the 280-metre-long landing stage is the only remaining sea bridge of its kind on the German Baltic coast. Loriot also used this very special place for his film "Pappa ante Portas". Beside a restaurant it offers a mooring for the excursion boat trip.
Every year in July, the Ahlbeck Summer Festival and the Long Night of Music take place on the concert square and on the Ahlbeck Promenade. Visitors can look forward to various regional and national bands, a fire show, a participatory circus for children or a historical swimwear show.
