When you walk along the beach in Prerow and you go toward the pier there is a little pedestrian zone leading away from the beach. It's full of little shops that sell ugly ties, warm wollen hats and hot wine! Of course we took a break here to warm our hands for a while!
There's also a few fish restaurants here that we didn't try but I bet they are quite nice. Prices are "East-Prices" .. everything is so much cheaper here than at home!
Favorite Dish: Hot wine!
To find a tree at the Darß which is straight is nearly impossible. They are all grown into one direction because of the heavy winds up here. I think it looks really beautiful. But ask the trees how they feel ;-) These trees are called "Windflüchter" which means they are fleeing from the wind. What an appropriate name!more
The local postoffice is combined with a souvenir shop. Next to it there is a "Barnstein"-shop. Opposite the street you find the main grocery store.
What to buy: Barnstein
Toiletries and Medical Supplies:
When walking along the beach in winter you should always have a tissue with you. Otherwise your runny nose will kill (or at least annoy) you!
Photo Equipment: A digital camera so that you can take hundreds of pictures of old trains like I did ;-)
Camping/Beach/Outdoor Gear: If you stay in a train in the middle of nowhere bring a flash light. It get's really dark at night. Which is really nice - I have never seen so many stars like in that night!
The railway station is a cultural centre in summer. There are concerts and exhibitions here. The whole story is called Kunst auf Schienen (Art on Tracks).
Fondest memory: My friend Sonja invited all her friends for a weekend in an old railway station at the Baltic Sea. We had a great time there with lots of nice dinners, good laughs, windy walks at the beach and funny nights in an old train.
