On the Fischland one might feel like beeing on a small island: Only a few meters separate Baltic Sea and Bodden, which makes it possible to see from one stretch of water to the other. The Baltic Sea spas Graal-Müritz, Dierhagen and Wustrow are located on this part of the peninsula.
The Darß is the largest area on the peninsula Fischland-Darß-Zingst. Bis parts of it are under conservation and belong to the Vorpommersche Boddenlandschaft National Park. What you will find here are untouched woods, natural beaches and plenty of room for outdoor activities.
The former island Zingst is the eastern most part of the peninusla. Surrounded by the national park´s islands Kirr, Bock and Werder Zingst is the place for nature photography. Unsurprisingly, the big photography festival that takes place in the Baltic Sea spa Zingst addresses environmental issues.
When you visit the Fischland-Darß-Zingst region there is not only the Baltic Sea coast awaiting you. The southern Bodden coast has a lot to offer too. You can go for a swim in the Bodden, sail on one of the traditional Zeesboote, or kitesurf. You can also go for a bike ride and visit the cities Barth and Ribnitz-Damgarten or the small villages along the coastline.
The Vogelpark and Recknitztal region is the ideal place for prolonged hikes, bike trips, canoe adventures on the river and many other things. You can also visit many colorful birds and other animals in the Vogelpark, which is a zoo near Marlow.
The museum presents Europe's largest amber exhibition with outstanding historical and modern exhibits.
You can expect an exciting introduction to the natural history and geology of the fossil resin and valuable artworks from 3000 years on more than 1,000 sqm. The exhibition on the history of monasteries and abbeys in the adjacent monastery church shows hidden and revealed treasures, so that you can trace the life of the Clarissites and the evangelical landowners' daughters in this place.
Where in mediaval times devout Clarissins prayed, today there shine the treasures of the German Amber Museum. The visitor is familiarized with the natural, art and cultural history of amber. The themes of the permanent exhibition include: Amber finds on the coast of Mecklenburg-Western Pomerania, the history of the search for amber and the craftsmanship of amber in the Middle Ages, the large-scale extraction of amber in the 19th century and modern artistic processing in the present day. In the museum workshop you have the possibility to try the amber cutting yourself.
Tip for families: For children there are great opportunities to get involved with the "gold of the coast".
