Off on vacation! From Dresden to Rügen in the e-Golf

Off on vacation! From Dresden to Rügen in the e-Golf

Our four-part summer series gives practical examples showing that cars with sustainable electric, hybrid or gas drives are also suitable for longer journeys. In the first part, we explain how to get from Saxony to the Baltic Sea in the e-Golf*. 

Start: The Gläserne Manufaktur in Dresden

Since 2017, the e-Golf*, the flagship model of Volkswagen’s e-fleet, has also been manufactured in the Gläserne Manufaktur in Dresden – a genuine showcase location which transparently shows the e-Golf* production line itself and many of the advantages of electromobility. A perfect departure point, then, for a vacation trip in the e-Golf*, taking you around 500 kilometers from Dresden via the Spreewald, Berlin and the Uckermark to the Baltic seaside resort of Sellin on Rügen, Germany’s largest vacation island.

Scenic waterways: Charging stop in Lübbenau

This small town in the Spreewald is well known for its charming, medieval center and for boat rides through the picturesque Spreewald canals. The charging network has.to.be (Alte Huttung, 03222 Lübbenau) offers four charging stations with Type 2 AC plugs (22 kW). Passing the 1–2 hours of charging time will be no problem. It’s a ten-minute walk to the old town, 15 to the Spreeschlösschen palace with its beautiful park, and numerous cafés and boat rentals – for example, for a one-hour boat tour through the UNESCO biosphere reserve.

Bustling capital: Charging stop in Berlin

Germany’s capital already has an adequate e-infrastructure – there are four e-charging stations along the eastern ring road in Berlin alone. If you don’t have much time, we recommend a short stop in the pretty suburb of Wildau (DieTech GmbH, Dorfaue 29, 15745 Wildau) – here, it’s worth visiting the “Schwartzkopff-Siedlung”, a workers’ housing estate from the Belle Époque, or the Großer Zug lake on the river Dahme.

If you have more time, we recommend an overnight stay in Berlin, with hundreds of charging options and even more tips for cultural experiences and nightlife. Our recommendation: one of the many innogy COP charging stations in Berlin Mitte, not far from Alexanderplatz, for example innogy CPO, Neue Jüdenstraße 1, 10117 Berlin.

Broad landscapes: Charging stop in Stralsund

Next day, you start off with a full battery and full of metropolitan experiences for the second part of your e-Golf* trip, which takes you first through the north of Berlin, then through the beautiful natural landscapes of Schorfheide, Uckermark and Müritz. It’s 305 kilometers, which means that with the e-Golf’s* NEDC range of 300 kilometers, you should plan a fuel stop. If driving normally in the ECO+ mode, you should easily manage the 260 kilometers to Stralsund – and if not, you can use the charging station at the freeway service station at Demminer Land (Am großen Torfmoor 1, 17129 Völschow) after about 200 kilometers. In any case, it is well worth stopping in the Western Pomeranian Hanseatic city, strolling along Hafenstraße and past (or into) the Ozeaneum, while your e-Golf is being charged at chargeIT mobility (2 Type 2 plugs, Heilgeiststraße 46, 18439 Stralsund). During the last 45 kilometers over the Strelasund lagoon and across Rügen, you will already be in a vacation mood and will reach your holiday destination with a well-charged battery.
