The Krakower Obersee nature reserve is an old nature reserve in Mecklenburg. It is the southern part of the Krakower See and includes the islands in the lake and the adjacent Dobbiner Niedermoor. белоопашест орел can be seen very well in the area. Many water birds can be observed all year round: голем корморан , дива гуска, Дива патка , сива патка , цуцулест кожувар , црвеноглав кожувар , патка лажичарка , сива чапја , голема бела чапја , езерски галеб , Сребренест галеб. In the winter months it serves the Nordic geese and swans as resting and sleeping waters. Especially during the autumn migration in November and December, up to 15,000 Палска (Посебна) гуска and белочелна гуска come in at dusk with a great spectacle.



There is a visitor center at the nature park administration in Karow.. The circular route around the whole lake is about 18 km.
