North of the seaside resort of Binz, between Prora and Mukran, are the flint fields. Their uniqueness makes the Schmale Heide with the Steinfeldern a natural event of international rank.
The nature reserve of the Schmale Heide is 40 hectares in size.
The main component is 14 consecutive and about two kilometers long, running parallel to the Baltic coast scree walls. They are composed of 90 percent flint stones, the rest are crystalline bricks of Nordic origin. The gray-white shimmering Feuersteingeröll lies about 1 meter high.
The stone walls were thrown up 3,500 to 4,000 years ago by a number of strong storm floods. At that time, the sea level was one to one and a half meters higher than today. The small Jasmunder Bodden was an open sea bay at that time.

If anyone has the idea to make a hike to the flint fields, that said, the effort is not worth it. There are a lot of stones there, and there are also flintstones, but it seems as if everything has been poured up. Somehow unnatural. On the way there lurk millions of extremely aggressive mosquitoes, just waiting to attack unsuspecting hikers.

2.5 km long and 300 m wide. These are the flint fields of Mukran. The flints tower up to 4 m high, where you can stroll and browse wonderfully. If you do not find the perfect stone to take away, you will not find it anywhere. In summer, it gets really hot here, as hardly any trees provide shade. At the edge you can cool off in the forest. But it is also mosquito-free on the field ;-)
Admission free, only parking may need to be paid, depending on where you stand.

A unique piece of nature in Europe, created by the Ice Age. The flint fields are located between BInz in the south and Neu Mukran in the north.
The flint fields can be reached over different lengths and "heavy" routes.
The shortest and most convenient is from the parking lot "Feuersteinfelder" on the L29 in the direction of Mukran. The southern route, from the parking lot P2 of the natural heritage center, but is much more interesting, because here you still pass the "Schmale Heide".
