The lighthouse is a great destination for walking or cycling. If you want to go up to the tower there or have a rest in the cafe, you must first enter the museum. These three are one unit and can not be used separately. So take food or pay admission. The nearby beach is not quite as crowded in summer as the others.

Not just for hikers. Even as a cyclist, there is much to discover here. The lighthouse can be reached on foot, by bike or even by horse-drawn carriage. It is worth to explore the tower.
In the summer determines more pleasant to explore. Unfortunately we had rain and a stiff breeze that made the wind even colder. Otherwise very nice beach. Explore him!

Northwest of Ahrenshoop extends to the northernmost point of the peninsula Fischland-Darß-Zingst, the Darßer place, the so-called West beach. The fine sandy beach, bordering on the Darßwald, offers a delightful combination of a maritime atmosphere with unspoiled naturalness on a length of around 14 kilometers. Here you will discover wild plants, fallen trees and natural dunes. The entire beach area is also approved as nudist beach. Even dogs can walk here all year without restriction.

The Daßer place is a special place in the national park. A landscape full of dynamism and fantastically beautiful. We went the way with a ranger. Which again gives a very different view of this place. Information about the tour, is available in the tourist information.

Great place - the adjacent museum with a small outdoor area are interesting. The lighthouse is part of the museum - so if you want to go up high you can visit the museum.
A little unfortunate, I find that to visit the café a ticket for the museum or lighthouse must be purchased.

The Darßer Ort is located in the Vorpommersche Boddenlandschaft National Park. This place has it all. The lighthouse, the beach, the bay and the forest. There is hardly a place that unites this in the smallest space. In the summer there is always full in good weather, but who wants to be lonelier, takes time for the circular walk. A paradise for bird lovers.
