Bike Touring Highlight
The history of border security is comprehensively documented by the Grenzturm Verein in Kühlungsborn.
Here you can also climb a border tower that has been prepared for visitors and look at the area that was monitored by the border guards. The border towers were all identical. One of them was standing on the steep bank between Rerik and Menschendorf. There were also places for the headlight batteries. They shone the Baltic Sea and the beach for suspicious people at regular intervals.
At sea lay the gray Haye, coastal defense boats that were all connected to one another via a command center.

Of the former 27 border towers, 2 still exist today, accessible in Kühlungsborn.
