Or visitors can take a bicycle tour to the interior. The Achterwasser, a large bay separating the island from the mainland, offers glorious autumn scenery. In northern Usedom lies Peenemünde, a village with a unique history. It was here that the Nazis developed the infamous V-2 rocket. Today a museum offers a critical view of the test site's role in World War Two. And for those seeking peace and quiet, there's Lieper Winkel, where nature rules and there's little sign of tourists.
