The Lagoon

Tours around the Szczecin Lagoon

Discover the area around the Szczecin Lagoon — from land, water or air; on foot, by bike or on four wheels.

Pomerania, whose name originates from the Slavic for "by the sea", is today a vacation region with vast white beaches, dense forests, old trading towns, quiet villages and mysterious places such as the sunken Vineta.

From Anklam to Szczecin

By car from Anklam to Szczecin to the museum

This charming, little used route leads from Anklam via Ueckermünde, Mönkebude, Luckow and Hintersee to Szczecin. The goal is the passage through the forests of the Haff hinterland, and it’s worth making stops in the former fishing villages. At the Ahlbecker Seegrund nature reserve, just before Hintersee, the journey slows down on the original cobblestones.

A faster route (1:30 h/88 km) leads along the main B 109/B 104 roads.
