The Brohmer & Helpter Mountains

Gentle hills, streams, forest growth: the Brohmer & Helpter Mountains not far from the Baltic Sea and the Szczecin Lagoon inspire nature fans and active recreation seekers in particular with their calming idyll.

The Brohmer Mountains

The gentle hills were formed about 13,700 years ago as a terminal moraine. Today, the landscape is characterized by many small spring creeks, swampy depressions and lakes, such as the Galenbeck Lake or the Schönhauser Lake. The elevations are almost completely forested. The most common tree species here is beech. In the depressions there are more birches and black alders. Rare animal species such as the stag beetle, the longhorn beetle, the fire-bellied toad or the great crested newt are at home in the hilly and forested landscape. In addition, from time to time you can observe representatives from the game species red deer, black deer and roe deer.

Birds also find a safe and well protected place here. The mountain landscape is part of the European bird sanctuary. In the area of the Brohmer Mountains you can also explore many interesting villages. How about a bicycle tour along idyllic places like Woldegk, Strasburg, Rothemühl or Schwichtenberg?

The Helpter Mountains

Record-breaking! With 179,5 meters the Helpter Berge are the highest elevation in Mecklenburg-Vorpommern. Ideal conditions for a relaxed hike with the whole family. Even a summit book is waiting for an entry after a successful hike. The ascent is signposted.

By the way, the terminal moraines originating from the Pomeranian stage of the Vistula Ice Age are named after the village of Helpt, which is located on the northern slope. Also worth seeing is the Mildenitz erratic boulder, which can be found at the edge of the Helpt forest, as well as the Helpt beech halls and the spring meadow at the foot of the Helpt mountain. This is also the source of the Linde River - probably the only river that both rises and flows in Mecklenburg-Vorpommern.
