The origins of the Schmachter Lake

Bestandteil des Naturschutzgebietes Schmachter See und *Fangerien ist der Schmachter See in BINZ auf Rügen. The Lake due to the settlement was given the name Sahib, who has been to the past directly on the southwestern shore of Lake.
Der Ursprung des Sees liegt bereits in der Eiszeit. This time there was a glacier tongue, What is the Lake. In the early days, he was still part of the Baltic Sea and had a depth of about 15 Meters on. Ago 5000 Years he has been due to the resulting spit “Small Heath” separated from the Baltic Sea. Heute handelt es sich bei diesem See um einen Flachwassersee, which has a depth of only between one and two meters. The water surface is located on a size of around 118 Hectares.

The location

It borders on the north end of BINZ. The well developed waterfront in BINZ is called Park of the senses, because it is here particularly quiet and relaxing. Angelegt wurde der Park of the senses anlässlich der Internationalen Gartenbauausstellung IGA Außenstelle im Jahr 2003. The promenade, which is also on the Bank at BINZ, is a very popular meeting place especially in the evening hours. This place is ideally suited, to experience the sunset. On the well signposted hiking trail the lake can be wandered extensively.
