... (total area 322 km²) is situated in the northeast of Germany, half way between Berlin and Rostock.
The Müritz with an area of 117 km ² is the largest lake in Northern Germany. It is famous for its crystal clear water and charming landscape. A 15km wide strip of shore, on the east bank, is part of the national park.
There are over 100 lakes in the Müritz National Park which are larger than 1 ha. The larger section (260 km ²) of the park, on the east shore of the Müritz, is characterized by vast pinewoods and large moorlands. In the smaller section (62 km ²) around Serrahn (which comprises the east part of the national park), you will find impressive old beech groves set against a hilly landscape with many small lakes and moorlands.
The first light green of spring changes the landscape. The cry of the birds of happiness, the cranes, can be heard throughout the National Park. The birds can now be seen in many locations throughout the park. The ospreys have also returned. The pairs examine the condition of the nests and prepare for the breeding season. In the park’s many lakes, the croak of the moor frogs can be heard, in an attempt to seemingly drown out the call of the cranes. The light green of the early reeds and the sky-blue male moor frog, trying to attract a female, reflect the colours of spring. In contrast, the white of the snowdrops or the yellow of celandine and gagea light up the forests.
In character with Goethe’s account of an Easter walk, visitors to the National Park are delighted by all the natural changes in the environment. This phenomenon is especially impressive when exploring the park on foot or by bicycle. Are you game?
All the trees of the park are green, flowering water lilies float in the lakes and rivers, some people look for a shady spot under an overhanging old beech tree or oak tree. The air is filled with the sound of countless birds singing in the early morning. Sea eagles and osprey fly in circles looking for food in the region. The crane uses the protection of the damp alder and birch marshes to raise its offspring. Our friend, the stork can often be seen looking for food in the meadows and pastures. The National Park particularly attracts many tourists in the summer. Holiday makers spend a relaxing time riding bicycles, canoeing or walking. The bus service, organized by the National Park Authority, provides an environment-friendly way to travel through the park.
Enjoy the golden colours of autumn in the National Park. You can choose to go on wonderful walks in the Serrahn beech groves. The low sun glistens over the many lakes. The very special wonders of nature can be observed on the east shore of the Müritz. At dawn, numerous cranes, calling loudly, land on the lake. They are passing through on their way south. At the same time, you can hear the belling of the deer.
Winter transforms the landscape into a scene of snow and ice. The trees, which were covered with leaves in the summer, now stand bare and often resemble a bizarre work of art. Like the crane and osprey, some people find the weather too cold. They prefer to retreat to warmer places, like to have a hot cup of tea and biscuits and enjoy the winter silence. However, others who brave the cold, like the sea eagle, red deer and bittern and many other inhabitants of the National Park, can go on winter walks to spot and observe some of the park’s inhabitants. It is worthwhile visiting this region in winter.
