The 1860s, iron rails were rapidly spreading throughout Germany, including those of the Angermünde–Stralsund railway which was built to shorten journey times between the north of the country and Sweden. There was however an opportunity to get rails even closer to the Baltic border, the island of Rügen.
It would not be until 1883 when a railway on Rügen soil was built. It originally stretched as far as Bergen auf Rügen to begin with, and was extended 8 years later to reach the northern coast of the island at Sassnitz. At this point however, there was no fixed crossing with the mainland, instead, the body of water known as the Strelasund was traversed by ferry.
Traffic steadily grew in popularity as Germany and Sweden were ever closer linked. Mail would cross borders via Rügen faster than ever before, and eventually, a railway ferry was established between the two countries to bring them even closer together. The success of the ferry urged a greater connection to the mainland, and so in the 1930s a bridge was built over the Strelasund.
It wasn’t just Sassnitz and Sweden that benefitted from the island railway, the coastal town of Binz also found itself served by a single track branch line from Lietzow, and today serves as an equally important destination with every other train terminating there.
Following electrification, and the fall of the iron curtain, Rügen has become something of a holiday resort and has been referred to as “Brighton for Berliners” by those who have reviewed its Baltic coastline; and what better way to go on a summer holiday than by scenic rail!
Inselbahn: Stralsund – Sassnitz brings both passenger and freight flavours of island rail operations to life!

The island railway between Stralsund and Sassnitz with a branch to the Baltic resort of Binz in Mecklenburg-Western Pomerania invites you as an engine driver to let your thoughts wander off on a holiday. As a train driver, you should not digress too far on the picturesque and scenically interesting route, because there is work waiting!
For example, there is an InterCity that is supposed to take holidaymakers to the beautiful Baltic Sea resort of Binz. After this service, you take a regional express back to Stralsund main station. Be aware of the rather tight timetable. This is precisely because the line is an important freight connection in northern Germany in addition to passenger traffic. You can experience the freight traffic with the BR155 in heavy container service. And it would not be normal railway operations if there wasn’t a special operation waiting for you…
