Over 30 experience centers offer fascinating insights

More than 30 adventure centers in Mecklenburg-Vorpommern offer fascinating insights

Discover the beauty of nature in Mecklenburg-Vorpommern! Here you can experience untouched landscapes, expansive national parks and unique coastlines with natural beaches. In the various nature experience centers you can experience a wide range of nature experiences for all tastes and ages. Whether birdwatching, cycling, hiking or simply relaxing hours in nature, Mecklenburg-Vorpommern has something appealing to offer for every nature lover.

Three national parks, three biosphere reserves and seven nature parks preserve a fabulous world of flora and fauna. If you want to immerse yourself in this realm of nature, the best place to start is at one of the unique nature experience centers.

The outdoor exhibition „Where nature is at home“ shows the special diversity of nature in Mecklenburg-Vorpommern – a great experience at any time of year
  • From May 31 to August 29, the exhibition can be seen in Berlin on Steinplatz
  • .

With the free augmented reality app „So tickt Natur“, developed for the exhibition, you can go on a very special journey through the nature and adventure centers in Mecklenburg-Vorpommern with videos and 360-degree views. Download the app before your visit and immerse yourself in the realm of nature on site.

See nature with different eyes

Petrified hedgehogs, trees fleeing from the wind and wandering dunes - as they can also be seen in our film - this is how Mecklenburg-Vorpommern welcomes its guests. But you can also marvel at the wonders of nature in all the other regions of the vacation state.

In more than 30 adventure centers, young and old explorers learn to see this fascinating nature with different eyes. In the interactive exhibition of the Müritzeum, it bubbles and rushes from the giant screens in the entrance area of the multimedia museum, before it goes on a discovery tour through the habitat of storks and moray eels on a total of 2,000 square meters.

At the Rügen Natural Heritage Center, the path leads from the bottom of the lake up to lofty heights: in addition to a spectacular view from the treetop path, guests can also enjoy a multimedia exhibition and numerous hands-on opportunities in one of the center's craft workshops.

At Schwerin Zoo, on the other hand, you can immerse yourself in the Red List Center and experience the topic of species conservation, or travel through the realm of the great apes at Rostock Zoo. You can dive into an otherwise hidden universe in unique aquarium landscapes of the Ozeaneum in Stralsund and in the bear conservation center Bärenwald Müritz you can catch exciting insights into the life of brown bears on a forest hike. By the way, a relative of today's brown bears, the cave bear, lived in the time of the mammoth. If you want to learn how nature ticks, the adventure centers are just the right place.
