Let‘s All Go to the Beach: Darss, Germany (2007)

Episode 5
Only available in United States

When Germany was divided after World War II, the beaches in Weststrand on the Baltic Sea (with the Darss peninsula) were on East German territory. Some of the locals even dreamed of swimming across to the Danish coast, less than 30 kilometers away, but the remains of the military barracks here bear witness to the vigilance of the regime at the time.

Today, the former inhabitants of the German Democratic Republic and tourists from the West live and relax side by side, united by a love of nature and naturism, content to play at Robinson Crusoe in their tents or eco-friendly huts made from driftwood.

This is the second I have watched of the series ...these are fantastic, and I will definitely be watching all of them. Wonderful combinations of fun living, relaxation, tradition, and history woven into the two I have watched so far. I look forward to seeing the rest of them. Thank you.
