    A little over a kilometer away from the famous Ahlbeck pier, the pier in Heringsdorf is a few years younger, but at 508 meters it is almost twice as long, making it the longest pier in Germany.

    The history of the pier Heringsdorf began in the years 1891 to 1893. During this time, the 500 -meter-long Kaiser Wilhelm Bridge was built from wood.
    It was equipped with turrets and colonnades and was the location of restaurants and shops. About 10 years after the inauguration, it was extended by a side jetty. After the Second World War, the pier deteriorated rapidly and was completely destroyed by a fire in 1957.

    In 1995, the pier was rebuilt in almost the same place, but it did not follow the architectural model of the old bridge. At 508 meters, it is the longest of its kind in continental Europe today.
    The building is also partially covered on the lake side and has at the end of an attractive restaurant and a side jetty, from which one can undertake, for example, trips to Świnoujście.
    On the shore, a building complex is integrated into the pier, where you can even stay in comfortably furnished apartments. Furthermore, this includes the shell museum, restaurants, shops and a cinema.

    The pier with the shopping area halfway up is a magnet for beach walkers and walkers. Especially in bad weather, it is full due to the roof.

    story

    Its predecessor in Heringsdorf was the 500 meter long Kaiser Wilhelm Bridge, built in wood between 1891 and 1893 on behalf of the Seebad Heringsdorf public limited company. This was designed with turrets and colonnades and housed numerous restaurants and shops. According to the design of the Berlin architect Johannes Lange, the pier was built by the Wolgaster Actien-Gesellschaft für Holzverarbeitung. The construction drawings are in the Greifswald State Archive. In 1903, the pier was supplemented by a side pier for coastal passenger ships, the so-called ODIN Bridge.
    After the Second World War, the bridge was hardly used or maintained. The buildings on the beach were soon demolished. On June 27, 1958, a fire destroyed the now dilapidated pier. Two teenagers were convicted of arson.
    The current bridge was built in 1995 about 50 meters from the site of its predecessor and about 50 meters from it

    Kaiser Wilhelm Bridge in Heringsdorf

    A bit of pride resonates when the people of Heringsdorf talk about "their" pier... - No wonder, after all, the Heringsdorf pier is not only the longest pier in Germany with a length of 508 meters, but also one of the longest structures of this type in Germany Whole europe! It is the successor to the original "Kaiser Wilhelm Bridge" and has been welcoming visitors, locals, holidaymakers and day trippers to a very special walk since 1995.

    The predecessor of today's construction made of steel and glass fell victim to two fires: after its bridgehead burned down in 1946, only eleven years later a fire - probably arson - destroyed the land part.
    The new Kaiser Wilhelm Bridge, which was built only about 50 meters from the first, steadfastly defies the sometimes harsh climate at the sea: it was even one of the few piers that survived the storm surge of 1995 completely unscathed.

    The current bridge was built in 1995 about 50 meters away from the location of its predecessor and about 50 meters longer. About 300 meters of the 508 meter long structure is a covered pier erected on stilts over the water of the Baltic Sea. At the end of the pier is a restaurant with an eye-catching, pyramid-shaped roof. The last few meters of the bridge lead down to the jetty, from which excursion boats connect Heringsdorf with other seaside resorts. On land, the pier begins with a building complex that houses a shell museum, a cinema, restaurants, shops and holiday apartments.
