Around Anklam extends the nature reserve Lower Peenetal. The Peenetal was formed at the end of the last ice age and is a unique moor area in which peat was mined until 1925.The second of three tours in the Peene Valley begins in Anklam. You can easily reach the city by train, for example in 50 minutes from Stralsund. You leave Anklam on a bumpy, but gloriously shady avenue in the direction of Gnevezin, where you find a small chapel. Immediately afterwards you will reach Bargischow. In the middle of the village is the mighty church and next to the French Linden. According to legend, in the hollow trunk of the more than 500-year-old tree, Napoleon's soldiers poured beer.On a small path through the magnificent landscape of the Anklam peat bog you drive to Kamp, which is located directly on the Szczecin Lagoon. On the opposite side of the small harbor town is already the island of Usedom. Currently (2019) no ferry leaves for Karnin, but it is intended that you from 2020 can drive from Kamp on Usedom by ferry.From the harbor in Kamp you can see an impressive monument, the lifting bridge of Karnin. It is part of a former Karniner railway bridge. This was an important part of the route from Berlin to Usedom. Towards the end of the Second World War, the German Wehrmacht blew up the bridge, only the lifting section remained intact.The third tour through the Peene Valley takes you from Kamp back to Anklam. komoot.de/tour/79529597
