In front of Pramort is the most important migratory resting place of the Gray Crane. The presence of humans causes the large birds to become anxious. They become nervous, turn away, waste valuable energy, which they urgently need for the still long flight to the winter quarters. In the worst case, they may abandon their roost - permanently.
From here you can observe various waterfowl, limousines and sea eagles. A special feature is the observation of the crane rest. From September to November you can experience an impressive spectacle from the crane resting place Pramort, when, for example, the cranes form a wedge-shaped formation when approaching their roosts or line up in a long chain.
Pramort is a large white dune field on the Ostzingst. With a height of more than 13 meters, the High Dune of Pramort is also one of the highest white dune landscapes on the German Baltic coast. This dune, the High Dune of Pramort, is an extremely sensitive landscape that would be damaged by any footstep. Actually, man does not belong here at all.
In order to protect the highly sensitive large birds, the number of visitors at Pramort is limited. The entire area is therefore closed to general visitor traffic from 3 p.m. daily until 8 a.m. the next morning, from September 1 through early November. With one exception: you can purchase the National Park Card "Observe - without disturbing" for the day in question at the checkpoint. It is then valid from 3 pm to 7 pm.
