At the Baltic Sea Cost between Warnemünde and Heiligendamm, you will find the small sea resort Nienhagen, with its mysterious forest called the Geisterwald (roughly translates to the forest of ghosts) immediately situated at the steep coast. Myths and legends have grown up around the beautiful forest, . derived, perhaps, from the sight of the bleak trees that are marked by the harsh storms that blow every year over the Baltic Sea. In dusk and in fog they may appear a bit uncanny. But at sunset, I can definitely say, that the mystical forest becomes just lovely: you will see a spectacle of colours through the treetops and the sparkling water of the Baltic Sea.
