Dan went for a hike.
October 15, 2020
“Ascent” is of course grossly exaggerated, but at least the Streckelsberg in Koserow is the third highest point on the island of Usedom at 58m.In this section, the mountain forms the highest mountain on the steep coast.From the end of the 1930s, the Wehrmacht built an observation tower here. From here one could observe the development of the air situation in the run-up to the important port cities of Swinoujscie and Szczecin. In addition, the tower served as a measuring station for the rocket tests of the Peenemünde research institutes.In 1997 it was removed.We had to shorten this tour significantly due to yesterday's storm surge.About 500m further south of the Streckelsberg a steel staircase leads down to the sea. Here we wanted to run south along the beach to the next set of stairs.Unfortunately, the water of the Baltic Sea reached the dunes, which made a walk on the beach impossible.
