The small bird sanctuary island of Langenwerder is located in the entrance to the Salzhaff in the north-east of the Baltic Sea island of Poel.
The small island of Langenwerder, located off the northeast coast of Poeel, is Mecklenburg's first seabird sanctuary. Even then, the "Jordsand" association recognized that breeding oystercatchers, gadwalls and meadow pipits needed to be protected just as much as gulls and terns. Migrating seabirds were also given a natural refuge on Langenwerder. The feathered guests can be observed with binoculars from Gollwitz or on one of the equally rare and popular guided tours. Outside the breeding season, from the end of July until October, the latter also take place on Langenwerder.
In addition, you can meet many hobby researchers, collectors and explorers on the coasts and beaches of Poel at any time of the year.
