Masuria

Land of 3.000 lakes.

Masuria is unbelievable beautiful: The country of 3.000 lakes and millions of white storks. Huge native forests and nature parks, wide heather plains and wonderful clean rivers and crystal clear lakes are part of the scenery, as are century old avenues. On the bicycle tour and during the extensive programme with boating, canoeing and many sightseeing tours you discover a country young at heart and the hospitality of the people living here. Be impressed by the unusually rich varieties of flora and fauna. Summer meadows gleaming in all possible colours catch your attention as well as the many bird species, first of all of course the “heraldic bird of Masuria”, the white stork. The people were very careful with the nature of the Masuria. So the home of the poets Siegfried Lenz and Ernst Wiechert is until now the green lung of Europe. Breathe deeply: welcome in Masuria.
