The Tedingsinsel is an island in the northeast of the island of Hiddensee . The island is located west of the southern tip of the Bessin double peninsula . It belongs to the municipality of Insel Hiddensee .

The name of the island (Teding is a Low German nickname of Theodor) is said to refer to Theodor Nehls, who ran a shop in Vitte at the end of the 19th century and later a guesthouse. Nehls had obtained hunting permission from the local landlord and often hunted geese from the island in the autumn.

The approximately one hectare island measures around 200 × 60 meters. The highest parts of the island are only a little over a meter above sea level and mostly consist of sand deposits.

The Tedingsinsel is uninhabited and belongs to the Vorpommersche Boddenlandschaft National Park . It is the breeding site of numerous sea and migratory birds. You are generally not permitted to enter.
