Dunes fulfill an important protective function for the landscape of the Darss. Therefore, they may not be set foot upon, even if they are not within an enclosure. At the beach, resting places must be at a 2 meters’ distance from the foot of the dune. It costs much work and money to restore stamped down dunes to their original state. Therefore, please only use the beach transits provided!
Exhibitions take place in the Seemannskirche (Seamen’s Church), in the Darss Museum and in the " Kiek in" culture centre - an ancient captain’s house.

HEALTH RESORT TAX
Everything which benefits tourists is generally financed from the Health Resort Tax. This includes e.g. the maintenance of the extensive net of bicycle and hiking paths, the cleanliness of the beach, the emergency services and the cultural attractions on offer. That’s why in Darss, a Health Resort Tax is also levied. The amount, duration, objectives and further details are written down in the ‘statutes concerning the levy of a health resort tax’ of every municipality. Further information concerning this tax can be obtained from the health resort administration or from your landlord / landlady. In the Baltic Sea resort of Prerow, period A corresponds to the main holiday season, period B and C to the off-season time. Day-tax cards are available from vending machines, from the information kiosk and from the beach keeper. The day-tax card is valid fort the whole region of the peninsula Fischland-Darss. The holders of tax cards enjoy price reductions amongst others at day-parking lots, events organized by the health resort administration, museum visits.
Guided hiking tours are offered during the whole year by the Tourist offices (in the municipalities, there are trained hiking guides), by the ‘Natureum Darsser Ort ‘, by the Kneipp Association and by the National Park.

Prerow, January 1st, 1999/2000
All the water samples taken from the Baltic Sea according EU-Directives, tested by the Territorial Institute of Hygiene showed a constant excellent bathing water quality. The fact that there are no sewage water discharges along the out coastal areas of Darss and Zingst as well as agreeable streams at this Baltic Sea Spot are the reason for ‘unspoilt’ bathing fun. Also at the measuring points of the Bodden, no reasons for complaints in accordance with the EU-Directives were found. Yet the depth of the sight is a bit low. The reading of the measurements carried our every two weeks from May to September are available from the Health Resort Administrations for consultation.
