Typically Pomeranian: Old and historically grown, the small town of Loitz has preserved its youthfulness and does not let itself be disturbed at all by worldwide hectic and unrest.

The name of the small town of Loitz in Vorpommern developed, like so many town names in our region, from Slavic. The town was first mentioned in 1170 after the name Losice, the name of the countryside around Loitz. This name probably derived from the Old Polish word Losicat and thus from the noun "elk". You probably won't find any moose here anymore, but you never know "who else" you might meet on a tour through the nearby Kronwald.

If you wander through the historic old town with its network of streets dating back to the 13th century, you will pass the church of St. Marien. This three-nave hall church was built in the 13th century. Two bronze bells and three small cymbals are part of the church's ringing. A swing bridge over the Peene River built around 1886 was replaced by a modern bascule bridge in 2012. Furthermore, Loitz offers a marina opened in 2006 with several boat berths. Right next door, you can visit the newly renovated historic train station building, which houses a restaurant.
