"MV is good!" This is the message of the northeastern German state. Mecklenburg-Vorpommern is one thing above all: a natural paradise. Come down, take a deep breath, relax - that is the motto of the people who travel every year there. Also on the Baltic Sea, where Germany is quite "wild". The coast Vorpommern offers numerous natural resources. The so-called Bodden among them. There are shallow coastal waters, separated from the open Baltic Sea by islands and headlands. You are stage for an impressive spectacle. So here about hundreds of thousands of geese gather from summer to autumn, before moving to Western and Southern Europe. They seem to make an appointment with the cranes that do the same to them. If the majestic birds fly in the evening, then reverberate far their calls over the countryside.

From Fischland-Zingst Hiddensee, Rügen and Usedom to the Szczecin Lagoon: land and water writhe around each other constantly coast of Pomerania and each other. The Bodden are interspersed with bays - and on some 1,500 kilometers of shoreline length. They are a paradise for those who like to have the sea, but not necessarily on beach holiday. And they are an example of the constant change that our planet is subjected. Alternating between erosion and silting the Bodden change her face - sometimes barely noticeable, but sometimes at a breathtaking pace. As Hiddensee. There, the New Bessin, a hook from alluvial sediments in the north-east of the island, is growing every year up to 30 meters in the Vitter Bodden. The Bug Peninsula of Rügen he had already achieved if the strait would not between artificially open. Nature shows her wildness - even if the person has learned to tame them.
