Inland, rivers such as the Peene, Recknitz and Tollense wind through a landscape as if from times past. Avenues make up a large part of the country roads through what was at one time the Swedish and later the Prussian province of Western Pomerania. Behind the shady rows of trees you can see them: Old manor houses and castles , finely spruced up, or restored village churches and overgrown ruins. They are picturesque landmarks between traditional Hanseatic towns and dreamy villages.
If you are drawn out into the pure nature, you should visit the nature parks "Flusslandschaft Peenetal" and "Stettiner Haff" during your vacation in Western Pomerania - in autumn they become the playground of the impressive roaring deer and the trumpeting cranes .
In addition to the oases of peace on the sandy beaches, the bays and rivers of the region, a vacation in Western Pomerania also has a lot to offer in terms of culture and history: Artists such as Caspar David Friedrich were inspired by the warm colors and picturesque-romantic landscapes of Western Pomerania. The Eldena monastery ruins near the Hanseatic city of Greifswald were among his favorite motifs. Today, his paintings can be found in the Pomeranian State Museum in the painter's birthplace, while the museum in the Hanseatic city of Anklam is dedicated to aviation pioneer Otto Lilienthal.
