The KRANORAMA is a barrier-free Crane Observation platform near Lake Günz. It was opened to the public on the 15th of October 2015. The KRANORAMA is a replacement of the old observation platform, which became too small and crowded. Audiovisual media and live-transmission on a flat screen makes the KRANORAMA to a modern visitor platform.

Even the path from the parking area to the platform is a great adventure, as many interesting information boards and seat benches can be found there. Visitors therefore can move like a crane step by step from the parking area to the KRANORAMA.

The KRANORAMA was established within the framework of the cooperation “Schatz an der Küste”. This project is financially supported by the federal agency for nature conservation with money from the federal ministry of environment within the federal program on Biological Diversity.

The observation platform is located near Lake Günz along the road L213 in northern part of West Pomerania.

From the observation platform you have a view on the Günzer Seewiesen. This area is part of a large Special Protection area of the European bird’s directive, but is also a national natural heritage site, managed for nature conservation purposes by Crane Conservation Germany.
