In the north of Mecklenburg-Vorpommern, wonderfully situated on the southern shore of Lake Ribnitz and only one wavelength away from the Baltic Sea, lies the amber town of Ribnitz-Damgarten. As the gateway to the Fischland-Darß-Zingst holiday region, Ribnitz-Damgarten opens its doors to its guests. 

The attractive location of the town on the Ribnitz Lake with modern rest areas for water hikers, a well-developed network of cycle paths and hiking trails, a very diverse health tourism infrastructure, renovated old town areas, modernised harbour facilities, works of art in public spaces and a wide range of cultural activities make the town a popular place for visitors to relax. Anyone who visits Ribnitz-Damgarten cannot escape one thing: "the amber" that the town owes its nickname to. Let yourself be seduced on the "Amber Mile" and visit the buildings of the European Route of Brick Gothic - Ribnitz Monastery, St. Mary's Church, St. Bartholomew's Church and Rostock Gate - in the town.
