Hiking Highlight (Segment)
The steep shore section Hohes Ufer runs between the southern outskirts of Ahrenshoop until shortly before the pier of Wustrow. From the main street in Ahrenshoop branches off at the southern end of the village in a westerly direction, the way to the Hohe Ufer. It leads straight to a beach access. Before the beach access turn left and get on the way on the high shore. It leads up to the cliff along and offers beautiful views of the partly very steep, partly by coastal breaks rugged cliffs.
The coastal crashes endanger the shore. Unfortunately, annual demolitions of 10 m are not uncommon, cause the long-term disappearance of the steep coast, thus threatening the land behind the shoreline and can cause the Baltic Sea breaks through the fish land to the Bodden. You can find out more about this on the side of the association Interessengemeinschaft (IG) Hohes Ufer e.V., which makes every effort to ensure effective protection of this stretch of coastline.

The steep coast between Wustrow and Ahrenshoop is 3.2 kilometers long and up to 16 meters high. The coastal dynamics you can see here particularly well on the former East German bunkers, which are now lapped by the Baltic Sea. Because again and again parts of the cliff break off. According to current calculations, more than 70 meters of the steep coast between Ahrenshoop and Wustrow were rinsed in the last century.
The view over the sea with the concrete blocks in the water is especially unique at sunset.
