Best from the Coast
As the state with the longest coastline, most people think of Mecklenburg-Vorpommern primarily in terms of its long Baltic beaches. This is also reflected by the exhibitors in Hall 6.2a. Fisch Domke from Usedom is a familiar name to many Baltic Sea vacationers. The beers from Störtebeker Brauspezialitäten or Lübzer Bier go well with this.
For the 22nd time Mecklenburg-Vorpommern is represented at the International Green Week. Around 60 companies will be present on an area of 2,800 square meters, including early exhibitors such as Ludwigsluster Fleisch- und Wurstwaren with its large organic product range. Show acts perform daily on stage and set the mood in the popular exhibition hall.
The Landstiftung (land foundation) draws attention to the biological diversity in Mecklenburg-Vorpommern's interior. A school class squeezes apple juice. The non-profit organization is committed to preserving ecologically managed orchards. They are refuges for birds and insects.
At the official opening of the hall by Mecklenburg-Western Pomerania's Minister of Agriculture, Dr. Till Backhaus, he emphasized the contribution made to environmental protection by his state's farmers, who have a comparatively high proportion of organically farmed land. He also emphasized the positive impact of agri-environmental programs on the climate. Among other things, moors are moistened in the process.
Till Backhaus announced the new Königsweg on Rügen as a tourist highlight for 2023. Visitors will be able to enjoy spectacular views of the Baltic Sea from a skywalk on the Königsstuhl. In addition, Germany's longest pier is being built in Prerow and with it a new harbor for sailors. So there are plenty of reasons to visit Mecklenburg-Western Pomerania, and not just at the IGW.
