Brodtener Ufer

Schleswig Holstein, Lübeck  >  Germany

Beautiful walk overlooking the Lübecker Bucht (Bay) following the sand cliffs. Large colony of Sand Martin.

Added by Tim Herfurth

Description

This walk is maybe not a birding hot spot but you have the opportunity to enjoy the Baltic Sea without so many hotels and other buildings, walking on top of the sand cliffs. Try to avoid bank holidays or weekends especially in spring and summer when it can be packed. Birds in summer are of course Sand MartinRed-breasted Merganser and Eurasian Oystercatcher. Maybe the best time to birdwatch is between late autumn and early spring when the Brodtener Ufer is the best place around Lübeck to spot sea ducks and divers.
