The villages of Niendorf and Hohen Wieschendorf belong to Hohenkirchen, a picturesque municipality situated between hills, meadows and forests and the blue of the sea near Wismar. Due to the landscape, the municipality offers good conditions for active leisure and recreation, e.g. hiking, cycling and horse riding. The Wohlenberger Wiek, which as part of the Wismar Bay represents the direct access to the Baltic Sea, is particularly suitable for any beach activities of families with children thanks to its shallow beach and the sandbanks that dry out at low tide. For sailors and families with boats, the marina in Hohen Wieschendorf is a good place to moor. Find out more about our history here.
Tidal activity with a tidal range of approx. 20 cm can still be detected, but is usually overlaid by wind-dependent water level fluctuations. In general, the water level falls with south-westerly winds and rises with north-easterly winds. Water level fluctuations of over 1 m were observed within a few hours.
