Poel Island: beaches, birds, fish

For a long time the island of Poel in 10 km from Wismar was an issue of argument between the Germans, the Swedes, and the Danes. Today it is a popular weekend vacation spot for residents of all three countries. Almost the entire coastline of Poel consists of ideally clean beaches, while a considerable part inland is a protected zone with saline meadows. The area of the island doesn’t exceed 40 square meters. It houses several noteworthy towns.

Among the towns on Poel Island there is, for example, Gollwitz. It is recommended to those who love birds: from here it is convenient to travel to the tiny neighbour island of Langenwerder where the first bird reserve in Germany is located. Here you can meet cranes, halcyons, lapwings, and storks. The town of Timmendorf is a paradise for fishermen: here you can rent a motor boat with a guide and net and go to the places abounding in fish or just a ride on a yacht. Here you will find a lighthouse that since 1871 has been showing ships the way to Wismar, a Roman-turned-Gothic church where concerts of classical music are conducted in summer. In Kirchdorf there is a local history museum that tells the 850-year-long story of the island, whose first residents were Slavs. The most part of Poel, including the bridge from Wismar to the island, is fit for cycling.
