Mecklenburg’s Fischland

Where Baltic seaside resorts and quiet fishing villages meet

8 Days / 7 Nights
Moderate Walking
Beach with view inland with beach chairs and houses

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.

Spend eight days and seven nights in beautiful Mecklenburg. The first hiking stage of the Eurohike trip leads from Ribnitz to Dierhagen. All those who are interested in seafaring tradition can explore the surroundings of Prerow in more detail in the next walking days. 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.

  • 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!

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.

Itinerary at a glance

You'll find peace and tranquility during your hikes along the Baltic Sea coast, but first, you'll be greeted by the charming town of Stralsund. Relax on the white sandy beach in the Prerow Bay, and enjoy the panoramic view around the Darßer Ort lighthouse.

The beautiful harbour town attracts visitors with its historic market square, surrounded by Gothic gabled houses and the imposing town hall.

In the morning by train to Ribnitz-Damgarten. Before you start you should visit the amber-museum in the ancient St. Catherine museum. In Klockenhagen we recommend visiting the open air museum before you reach the lovely Fischland beaches at sea bath Dierhagen.

Walk along the beach and the dyke to Wustrow or Ahrenshoop. This place has a long sea-faring tradition, historic architecture and culture. In Wustrow you find the smallest piece part of the peninsula Fischland-Darß-Zingst. Short bus fare to your hotel in Prerow.

You either walk via Born along the reed-lined shores of the Bodden before you embark on your return journey through the Darßwald-forest to Prerow, or you enjoy a day of rest in the bay of Prerow, which is considered one of the most beautiful European beaches featuring fine, prestine white sand.

The western beach is a typical nature beach with forests growing to the edge of the dunes. The first tree line often is wind swept, called “wind catcher”. Walk along the wild beach to Darßer Ort with lighthouse, and then return to Prerow.

Cross the dyke to Zingst and walk on many roads around or through the traditional sea resort. Via the bridges of Meinigen you leave Zingst and follow the old train terrace to Barth. Here you find a maze of alleys, little cafés and historic buildings as e.g. a beautiful old granary ort he 35 m high gate from the 15th century.

By transfer to the starting point of the hike. You can expect a wonderful Bodden hike along the Barther Bodden and the National Park Vorpommersche Boddenlandschaft.

Alternatively, you can go directly by train to Stralsund and visit the numerous museums and sights at your leisure.
