The Peene is one of the last natural river landscapes in Europe. Large parts of the fen — a total of 9,600 acres — are therefore protected as a nature reserve. Gross Toitin is directly adjacent to the Peene nature reserve.
Don’t miss a guided tour of the river to visit the beavers, otters and eagles by canoe or solar boat. The Peene River Landscape is an increasingly attractive destination for nature tourists. In the year 2010 the Peene River Landscape won the European Destination of Excellence Award.
