A few minutes from the wonderful peninsula Fischland-Darß-Zingst, you enter into calm and untouched nature. The river Recknitz flows across the Vogelparkregion Recknitztal and is home for many plants and even rare animals like the lesser spotted eagle or the Eurasian kingfisher.

Vogelparkregion Recknitztal, calm and untouched nature

The name of the region origins in two of its most attractive sights: the bird park Marlow and the valley of the river Recknitz.

On its way, the river passes the cities of Tessin, Bad Sülze, Marlow, and finally Ribnitz-Damgarten before it enters the Saaler Bodden. Along the river course, you see beautiful landscape. Explore the rich flora and fauna either with a guided tour or on your own – on foot, with a bike, canoe or from the back of a horse. Pay attention to the small things – the hidden treasures are not that easy to discover.

Handcraft, historic manor houses, nature – you are welcome to have a closer look. Manufacturers will lead you through their production and show you the delicacies they make from regional and organic produce. Are you curious about what manor houses look like? Go and visit the warm-hearted landlords and landladies, they will love to tell their story. Stroll around the beautiful gardens and learn about nature protection and mindful gardening. Discover the treasures of nature in the unspoiled and biodiverse landscape. With an alert mind, you will always discover something new.
