The beautiful island Usedom is located in the far north-east of Germany. There you will find natural beaches,
small hills and green meadows. The Lieper Winkel with its small villages is one of the most idyllic areas of silence
and nature on this island. The following pages give an overview about past and present of this region and its
main village Rankwitz. We are sorry that most pages are currently available in german language, only.
