Insider tips for a short holiday over the Whitsun weekend

Even spontaneous holidaymakers will find free holiday apartments in these regions.

Bremen, May 13 2019. Cuxhaven, the Lübeck Bay, the Harz Mountains and the Allgäu – even spontaneous Whitsun holidaymakers will find available accommodation here. The late Whitsun date in June promises good chances for an early summer holiday this year. Even those who have made a last-minute decision can still take advantage of this opportunity.

An increasing number of Germans are planning a climate-friendly holiday in Germany and are looking for holiday apartments and homes. “The demand for family-friendly accommodation in Germany continues to rise steadily. Even short-term holidaymakers over Whitsun or the autumn holidays book holiday homes,” explains Sebastian Mastalka, managing director with the holiday home agency Traum-Ferienwohnungen, “our data analyses show which regions still have available accommodations.”

Vacant holiday apartments on the North Sea and Baltic Sea

Evaluations of the largest German holiday agency portal, which manages to avoid commissions for holidaymakers and landlords, show where many accommodations are available on short notice around Whitsun:
On the German coasts, which are particularly popular in summer, the East Frisian islands in particular are already heavily booked to capacity. But if you travel to the region around Cuxhaven or to the beaches of the Eiderstedt peninsula, you still have a good chance of getting a holiday apartment on the North Sea. For real island holidays there are still free holiday houses on the Baltic Sea island of Usedom. In Lübeck Bay you can combine a Baltic Sea holiday with a city holiday in Thomas Mann’s homeland.

But also apart from the beaches, Germany has many great holiday regions and Sebastian Mastalka of Traum-Ferienwohnungen still has insider tips for spontaneous bookers: “The Allgäu region offers a variety of available accommodation for all requirements, from holiday homes to holidays in tiny houses and luxury apartments. For hikes with the family or the dog, our landlords in the Harz Mountains are ideal. Those who enjoy wine and good food will find, for example, available holiday apartments on the Moselle.”
