Cutting-edge experience centres offer a fascinating glimpse into nature’s ingenious workshop

Snow-white chalk cliffs, bellowing stags and trumpeting cranes – this is how Mecklenburg-Vorpommern welcomes its guests. In every region, visitors are amazed by the wonders of nature. Whether wandering dunes, petrified hedgehogs, trees fleeing from the wind or salty meadows – there is no end to the discoveries. One third of the country is under a nature conservation order. Three national parks, three biosphere reserves and seven nature parks preserve a fabulous world of flora and fauna.

If you wish to immerse yourself in this kingdom of nature, then start in one of the unique experience centres. Nature lovers can travel through the kingdom of apes, walk through a bear forest or along a treetop path. Giant aquarium landscapes take you into a universe that is otherwise hidden. Whether interactive exhibitions or guided tours, visitors to the experience centre in Mecklenburg-Vorpommern can discover and get to understand nature close-up.
