Oder Delta - Germany

The Oder Delta is a region where the return of nature creates new sources of income and pride.

Located on the Baltic coast covering Poland and Germany is a unique region with a rich mosaic of large wild continental, marine and freshwater ecosystems. It is strategically located on one of the ecological crossroads in Europe.

Discover the Big Seven of the Oder Delta

The Oder Delta area has seven charismatic species serving as the main attractions for guests, including white-tailed eagle, European bison, beaver, elk, wolf, Atlantic sturgeon and the grey seal.

A new wilder landscape is beginning to take shape where wildlife is visible also in daytime and allowed to play its key ecological role again with minimum human intervention.

The flooding of former polders along the Peene River on the German side has created exciting stretches of new nature - now discoverable on foot, solar boat and canoe.

"The Amazon of the North" – with rich birdlife, otters and beavers, even at the outskirts of towns like Anklam. 

The immense value of the area is recognised by setting aside two thirds of all land and water for nature conservation and rewilding purpose.

Explore the area on guided walking tours, by solar powered boats or canoes and immerse yourself in the rich cultural heritage of this area including visits to old formal settlements of Vikings, gothic churches and towns.Local hospitality and food are plentiful and abundant. 

"To awaken quite alone in a strange town is one of the pleasantest sensations in the world."

- Freya Stark
