Western Pomeranian River District - Winner 2010

What makes the Western Pomeranian River District special?

The history of the region dates back to the era of the Vikings. The historical sites such as the Viking graves in Menzlin and the ruins of the former Benedectine monastery strengthen the position of the region as a cultural destination.

One of the main attractions of the region is the canoe trips that are organised along the endless rivers. Thus, it is not surprising that the tour received the name 'Across The Amazon Of The North'.

This tour reveals the balance between ecological, social and economic sustainability.

Stop at the idyllic rest stops along the river valley and stay overnight in tents. For travellers who prefer more comfort, there are cosy hostels and country houses available to host your stay.

Don't miss...

  • the white-tailed eagles
  • a one-day canoe trip
  • the museum of Otto Lilienthal, the pioneer of human aviation.
