The Peene Valley in the north-east of Germany is unique in Europe and well worth a visit. Nowhere else in Western Europe is there such a dense population of white-tailed eagles, beavers and the like.
The Peene Valley River Landscape Nature Park is home to one of the largest continuous fenland areas in Central Europe. This nature park in Mecklenburg-Western Pomerania is renowned for its largely unspoiled nature and exceptional biodiversity. It is home to amphibians, reptiles, fish, birds, mammals, countless insects and plant species, some of which are rare. Visitors can explore the river valley on guided experience tours on a solar-powered boat, in a canoe, on hikes across the marshland or by bike. The "Abenteuer Flusslandschaft" tourism provider network is the only German organisation to have won the EDEN Award tourism prize in recognition of its efforts surrounding sustainability.
