Scenic viewpoint

The first pier in Wustrow was built in 1886. The 50-metre-long structure was extended about 20 years later. Because the pier was made of wood, it was susceptible to damage by wave action and ice.

In 1992-93, a new, 240-metre-long pier supported by steel pilings was erected. The new pier quickly became a major tourist attraction; on clear days it is possible to see all the way along the coast to Warnemünde. In 2014, a sector light was installed on the pier to assist marine navigation.

At the foot of the pier, visitors are greeted by a sandstone sculpture celebrating Wustrow's past by Christine Dewerny (Swantewit, 2000-01).

Wustrow‘s annual pier festival (Seebrückenfest) takes place on the last Sunday in August. Several other local festivals including the annual beach horse race and the summer beach festival take place in the vicinity of the pier. The built-in stage is also regularly used for small concerts. On summer evenings, the pier is a favourite spot to hang out, watch the sunset, and take spectacular photographs of the evening sky.
