The holiday region Darss-Zingst is known as the most beautiful peninsula of Germany.
With a length of 45 kilometers, it offers enough space to explore this unique natural landscape by bicycle, on foot or by boat.
Ancient farmsteads, captains' houses and the panorama of church towers make this region an unforgettable experience. The sandy beach offers not only a fantastic bathing experience in the summer, it is ideal for long walks in the fall or winter, making a fantastic motive for the private photo collection of every vacationer, in every season. Enjoy the sunset on the west beach and let yourself and your partner from this outstanding Baltic romance impress.

And a small consolation: Who does not find it, can at least admire the "Baltic gold" in the Amber Museum in Ribnitz-Damgarten.
