The observation tower in the Dargun monastery and castle complex offers a breathtaking view

If you would like to experience Dargun from a lofty height, you can climb the observation tower in the monastery and castle complex. 92 steps of a dark spiral staircase lead to a viewing platform at a height of 25 m, from where you have a fantastic view over the small town, the monastery lake and the complex itself. On a clear day, you can see as far as the church tower of Demmin, 12 km away, and as far as Lake Kummerow. The observation tower is open on Saturdays and Sundays from 1.30 - 4.30 pm during the season. During the week and in the off-season, the ascent is also possible on request at the Dargun town information office.
