Top fishing areas

Plenty to discover

Fishing enthusiasts will find everything they could hope for in Germany's number 1 water region. Over 1,900 kilometres of Baltic coast, 2,000 lakes and 26,000 kilometres of flowing water offer the perfect fishing areas for anyone.

Visitors to the Mecklenburg Baltic Coast are thrilled by the seemingly endless sandy beaches, the rugged steep coasts and top spots to catch sea trout, cod, flounder and even turbot. Meanwhile, the blend of salt and freshwater in the Vorpommern Bodden landscape around Rügen promises a lively mix of species and causes some fish to grow to truly gigantic sizes. The pike biting here have almost crocodile jaws.

Fishing enthusiasts can expect to find countless opportunities between Lake Malchin and the island of Usedom: the rivers Peene and Trebel, large lakes and the outer coast of Usedom offer anglers a variety that is practically unrivalled anywhere else in Germany. The Mecklenburg Lakes have true superlatives to attract visitors. Some of the lakes are almost inland seas, allowing pike, carp and tench to grow to sizeable proportions. Large predators can also be caught in West Mecklenburg. Schwerin is considered the main centre of pike fishing.

So why not set off on an eventful journey of fishing and discovery in Mecklenburg-Vorpommern.
