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 Heimatstube in the old school from 1864 contains exhibitions of prehistory, early history and town history as well as changing special exhibitions. Guided tours of the town with visits to the church are available by appointment. There is also a library. The Heimatstube is open Tuesdays and Thursdays from 10:30 to 16:00.
The Heimatstube Marlow - A stroll through the history of our town. The topics of this exhibition are wide-ranging. In the Marlow Heimatstube there are original finds from the Stone Age to the Iron Age, as well as old seals and coats of arms. Other exhibits symbolize the era of the GDR. The exhibition covers Marlow's school and club history, reports on crafts, industry and agriculture. Visitors can browse through numerous albums and enjoy over 1000 photos. There are panels in the hallway. They show in concise form the development from the Stone Age to the first mention of the "little town of Marlow" in 1298. Interesting is also the showcase to the right of the entrance, in which the Marlow emergency money is. Special attention should be paid to the impressive model of the Marlow castle from the Slavic settlement period.
Of course, memories of lessons in the old Marlow school should not be missing in this building. A model of the former Wilhelm-Pieck-Oberschule and numerous teaching and learning materials give visitors an insight into the history of the Marlow school system. In the second room of our local history room you can get to know the typical trades of the village. The shoemaker's trade plays an important role, as Marlow was considered a shoemaker's town for a long time. With about 1,000 inhabitants, there were at times 33 shoemakers among them. With the barrel factory "Kossow & Levermann" and the dairy, the first small industrial enterprises also existed in Marlow from 1888.
