Hiking along the cliffs

The cliffs in Redewisch, in the west of Boltenhagen, are a relic from the Ice Age. The cliffs were deposited by various ice age masses such as clay, chalk and rubble.

The cliffs are subject to constant changes as coastal movements cause erosion. The cliffs break down again and again, especially during spring and autumn storms, which can also bring floods.

After such demolitions, hikers can look forward to fossil finds on the beach. Large boulders are also worth seeing.

Old photos of the cliffs show the constant change.
