A well-developed network of biking paths allows for short and extensive tours through the Klützer Winkel and along the Baltic Sea coast.

Through the partly flat and partly hilly landscape, you'll pass by rapeseed and cereal fields, through bright deciduous forests and romantic avenues. In about 20 minutes of biking from Klütz, you can reach the Baltic Sea Biking Path, which leads from the island of Usedom to Denmark. It is a unique experience to bike directly along the sea and discover the beauty of the Mecklenburg Baltic Sea coast.

Fields and villages were leveled in this border strip. Fishing was not allowed in the Baltic Sea in this area. In BOLTENHAGEN, the beach was closed to visitors from 8 PM to 6 AM and was strictly guarded. Soldiers of the "Grenzbrigade Küste" patrolled the promenade in double posts to intercept GDR citizens attempting to escape westward across the Baltic Sea.
