You have two options for exploring the steep coast of Brodten and its unique fauna and flora. The hiking trail on the top of the cliff will take you comfortably from Travemünde to Niendorf with a fantastic view of Lübeck Bay. It will take you about an hour and you will be walking through small woods, past fields and meadows, always hugging the steep cliff edge. Benches are a constant temptation to relax, linger and enjoy the breathtaking view of the sea. At the bottom of the cliff, there is a path running along the beach which is very wild, stony and pristine in nature. The strong surf, rocks that have crumbled from the cliff, fallen trees and large boulders turn your walk into a veritable obstacle course. With a little bit of luck, you may find a petrified thunderstone or sea urchin here hidden between the many mussels and stones. Or even a hag stone – that is a flint with a hole in the middle and a coveted talisman! If the surf is too strong, the narrow beach will be completely flooded with seawater and you’ll only be able to round the cliffs without getting your feet wet if you wear gumboots. By the way, the only steps connecting the upper and lower banks is around one kilometre before you reach Niendorf. Use them to obtain a fantastic view from the top!
