Route

5 km

Stages: 1 day The Gnitz peninsula in the northern backwater of the Island of Usedom is a true nature reserve paradise away from the Baltic resorts. The round tour leads along the unique coastal strip of the southern tip of Gnitz, to wild steep banks, wooded ridges, open dunes and blooming salt marshes. With a little luck, imposing white-tailed eagles and rare sand martins can be observed.

From the small village of Lütow, slender alders, towering poplars and squat willows guide the hiker along the Achterwasser. The reed beds on the shore form important retreats for animals such as otters, tufted ducks and coots. The white-tailed eagle can also be observed on its forays along the Achterwasser. Passing quiet bays and flowering meagre grasslands, the trail leads to the "Mövenort", a sand hook created by the surf current. From here the narrow path leads along the steep bank. One of the most beautiful views over the Achterwasser is offered by the 32 m high White Mountain. Against the backdrop of dense reed belts, green forests and wide fields, small sailboats pass by. The view of the Krumminer Wiek and the Peene River has its special charm, especially in the evening hours. Wind and waves shape the mountain, which is characterized by primeval pines and Usedom's largest sand martin colony. At the nature campsite the restaurant "Pott & Pann" with a variety of dishes of the region, coffee and homemade cake, offers a resting place. Passing pine forests, wet meadows and rough grassland, the route then leads back to the tranquil town of Lütow. Here it is worth taking a detour to the oldest megalithic tomb on Usedom, dating back to the Neolithic period around 3,000 BC.

Hikes along steep banks:
Steep banks are special sections of coastline and are subject to constant change. Washouts and break-offs are to be observed constantly. For your own safety, make sure to keep your distance from the break-off edges, use only the designated paths and heed warning signs.
