Separated from the beach only by dunes, the Great Ribnitz Moor offers mysterious excursion paths and scenic beach walks. The primeval alder quarries and pine moor forests are home to the moor frog, the otter and the crane.

On narrow paths and forest trails, the trail leads through the coastal high moor on the edge of the Rostock Heath, the largest contiguous coastal forest in Germany. Along ditches, the path leads through renaturalized birch moor forests and alder quarries to the excursion trail Großes Ribnitzer Moor. Creative and vividly designed wooden boards inform about the peculiarities of the moor landscape.

On a large clearing grows the narrow-leaved cotton grass, which is conspicuous by its snow-white mop of hair. In the past, the hair was used for stuffing pillows and for candle wicks. Birch trees and rustic pines line the narrow path to the moor lake. The rewetted peat pond is the habitat of numerous dragonflies and the moor frog. It is especially colorful here in spring. During spawning season, the male moor frog shines in bright blue to impress its chosen one. An avenue of birch trees leads hikers along the lakeshore in absolute silence. The forest floor is covered with a carpet of cranberries. Information boards along the path also provide information about rare plants such as sphagnum moss, sundew, royal fern or cranberry.

On the Asmusschneise you leave the excursion path and dive into the high forest with pines, copper beeches and birches. Huckleberry and bracken have spread along the ground. The tower trail leads through a lowland marsh into the coastal forest with its bizarrely shaped trees. These wind-blown trees are sculpted by the sandblast-like storms and form a natural protective wall against the forces of nature. After a few hundred meters, the forest opens up to reveal the white dune landscape of the Baltic Sea.

For the short beach walk, the flush near the water is the most suitable. The damp sand makes for easy walking and invites you to collect shells and other flotsam. Shortly before Graal-Müritz, the root path leads back into the coastal forest with its primeval pines. The roots protruding high from the sandy soil give the path its name, which leads hikers back to the starting point.
