Wild Germany- The Coast of Vorpommern

Some say that Germany's most beautiful landscape lies directly on the coast of the Baltic Sea with its famous landmark of chalkstone rock near Rügen. Here the peregrine falcon find safe places to raise its chicks. The bays of the Fischland-Darß-Zingst peninsular are similar to the lagoons of the Caribbean. Here up to 60.000 cranes roost every autumn. Deer come directly to the beaches near the primeval forests of the Darß and during the rutting season stags fiercely fight their battles here.

Director: Christoph Hauschild

Wildlife film producer Christoph Hauschild portrays a sensitive account of the Havel: Within the largest inland marshland of mid Europe thousands of cranes gather every year before they head south. Huge sea eagles find plenty of food from the numerous inshore waters and in neighbouring woodlands the large red deer bell. Foxes bring up their young. Stork nests are to be found on church towers and farmsteads, not far from quiet, marshy thickets, the habitat of the rare marsh toad.
