Mecklenburg’s Fischland

Where Baltic seaside resorts and quiet fishing villages meet

Baltic seaside resorts with traditions going back over 100 years, such as Dierhagen, Prerow, Wustrow and the artist’s colony of Ahrenshoop: you will pass these spots on your hike across the Fischland-Darß-Zingst peninsula. You come through quiet fishing harbours and small pretty villages – a region could hardly be more picturesque. A large part of the Fischland is under the protection of the Vorpommersche Boddenlandschaft National Park. You will especially remember the idyllic forest of the Darß, the picturesque pine forests and the cliffs and beaches.

Relaxation and peacefulness are your constant companions on this Eurohike hiking tour through the endless expanse of Western Pomerania. Gently undulating shapes and wonderful seclusion provide impressions that are hard to find in this form in Germany.

Details about a hiking holiday in Mechlenburg Fischland

Spend seven days and six nights in beautiful Mecklenburg. The first hiking stage of the Eurohike trip leads from Ribnitz to Dierhagen. Two hanseatic cities, Rostock and Stralsund will be passed in the first sections. On day three, all those who are interested in seafaring tradition can explore the surroundings of Prerow in more detail. In addition to historic architecture and spa culture, you will pass through the town of Ahrenshoop and the narrowest piece of land on the Fischland-Darß-Zingst peninsula.

The west beach, at the end of the hiking trip, is a real natural beach and a wonderful backdrop. Forest that reaches right up to the edge of the dunes and, as a highlight, a lighthouse that you pass by directly. You can hardly find a more romantic place.

The highlights of the hiking trip through the Fischland

  • Romantic Prerow Bay: On day four you can enjoy the day of rest to the fullest. In Prerow and especially in the bay of the same name you will find a fine, show-white sandy beach. One of the most beautiful in all of Europe!
  • 15th century dam gate: This gate in the small town of Barth is the only one of four original city gates that has survived. At 35 metres high and four metres wide, it is really impressive and definitely worth a visit!

Useful information about the hike through Mecklenburg Fischland

On this hike in northern Germany, you are mainly on hiking and paved cycle paths. You can also stroll along flat forest and meadow paths and along wonderful sandy beaches. Longer stages can be shortened by bus or boat if necessary.

Unsere Erwartungen für den Urlaub wurden erfüllt.
Es war günstig, dass wir zu Beginn und zum Schluss jeweils einen Verlängerungstag gebucht hatten. So besuchten wir in Ribnitz- Damgarten das Bernsteinmuseum, genossen die spätsommerliche Stimmung am Hafen, wanderten entlang des Boddens und des Silbersees zum Museumsdorf, in dem wir 3 Stunden verweilten und am folgenden Tag statteten wir auch dem Museum Wald und Moos einen ausdauernden Besuch ab. Höhepunkt war die Wanderung zum Darßer Ort mit röhrenden Hirschen, dem Kontrast von West- und Nordküste, sowie das Besteigen des Leuchtturmes. Respekt vor den Kräften der Natur erfuhren wir auch im Norden, dass ein Stück des Weges zwischen Wustrow und Ahrenshop wegen Abbruch an der Steilküste gesperrt war.

Beautiful and relaxing
Beautiful countryside and easy to walk. Although most stretches were on heavily used bike paths, there were plenty opportunities to leave the path and walk along the beaches, dunes and shady forests. Accommodations were wonderful and mostly close to the trail.

Wandern im Nationalpark
Abwechslungsreiche Wanderung entlang des Boddens, durch urige Dörfer, wilden Küstenwald, der imposanten Steilküste, durch rauhe Dünenlandschaft (ein Vogelparadies) zu schönen Ostseebädern, mit weitläufigen Stränden. Schöne unterschiedliche Unterkünfte mit gutem Service. Viele Sehenswürdigkeiten z.B. Freilichtmuseum Klockenhagen, Bernsteinmuseum, Leuchtturm Darsser Ort .. Sehr flexible Routenwahl möglich, gute Busverbindungen, alternative Schiffspassagen ..

Fischland 7 Tage
Es wurden uns superschöne Hotels gebucht. Jedes für sich besonders aber alle sehr nett und freundlich geführt und sauber. Frühstück Buffet oder in dem einen auch Tellerservice - immer nett hergerichtet, feine Sachen zur Auswahl - keine Wünsche offen. Wir waren begeistert von der Hotelauswahl. Die Wanderwege sind ab und zu recht anstrengend da sehr wenige naturbelassene Wanderwege. Wir haben uns dann aber unsere eigenen Wege gesucht und gefunden - vor allem durch die Wälder. Weicher angenehmer Waldboden und natürlich auch von der Hitze her sehr angenehem kühl. Besten Dank. Wir werden sicher wieder über Euch buchen.

Perfekte Wanderreise
Die Halbinsel Fischland-Darß-Zingst ist eine sehr schöne Gegend. Am besten gefiel uns die Strecke von Dierhagen nach Prerow. Die Hotels waren sehr gut ausgewählt und der Gepäcktransport hat immer einwandfrei geklappt. Wir können diese Reise jedem weiterempfehlen.
