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.
With its five exhibitions and 46 aquariums, the OZEANEUM Stralsund invites you on an extraordinary underwater journey beneath the northern seas. Visit Humboldt penguins on the roof terrace, "Niki" the female sand tiger shark in the 2.6-million-litre pool "Open Atlantic" and the giants of the sea - real life replicas of whales.
Dive down without getting wet - that is possible in the OZEANEUM Stralsund. Scientific exhibitions have been combined with breathtaking aquariums. Particularly impressive is the world's largest exhibition on whales with replicas of the sea giants in their original size, e.g. a 26 m long blue whale. In addition to the permanent exhibitions, the "Sea for Children" adventure area invites visitors to play and linger in a dune landscape with a lighthouse slide. On the neighboring roof terrace is a spacious penguin enclosure with a panoramic view of Stralsund's old town.
A unique feature is the thematic route through the northern seas with 50 aquariums, some of them huge. Through the 50 m² panoramic glass of the largest tank, the view opens up to various shark and ray species as well as silvery shimmering shoals of mackerel. In Europe's largest Baltic Sea exhibition, exciting insights into the habitat of grey seals, sea eagles or the tiny plankton await museum guests.
