Viewpoints, Natural bathing areas

Nowhere on the Baltic coast do land erosion and land formation take place so dynamically, in such a short time and in such a confined space as in the National Park of Vorpommersche Boddenlandschaft. The west beach, bordering directly on the Darß forest, is one of the most vivid examples of this. Due to its wildness and remoteness, it has been declared one of the most beautiful beaches in Germany and Europe several times. Arte even nominated it as one of the 10 most beautiful beaches in the world.

The West Beach is located on the west coast of the Fischland-Darß-Zingst Peninsula and consists of a 14 km long sandy beach. Here, romantic closeness to nature is combined with the primordial nature of the coastal landscape. The land has a rough, inimitable charm, while the kilometer-long fine sandy beach invites you to linger and dream at any time of the year. The horizon seems wider here than elsewhere, and in the distance heaven and earth touch. The air is clear. It invigorates body and mind. You feel free and recharge your batteries along the unruly nature of the Baltic Sea, which is soft and gentle in its originality, only to become boisterous a few moments later. Here you can bathe the soul and salt the senses.
