    Directly on the Baltic Sea bike path you can see the tower from far away. Stop and make a short detour to the tower. Here you can learn interesting things about border control of the former GDR.

    Reminds of dark times. Interesting to the counterpart in Kühlungsborn. The history is nicely explained there.

    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.
