Sabine Reimer-Meissner grabs a wriggling silver fish from the boat bottom, skin it with a piece of wood on the head and throws him into the water. "There he comes," said the fisherman, pointing to a white-tailed eagle circling over us. "My great-grandfather had one, my grandfather and my father, and the datt there, is mine." The eagle lands on a pine tree. "Well, watt is because nu, open your eyes," shouts Sabine and shows on the dead, in the lake of fish that are driving. The king of the skies glides, skin in flight, the yellow claws into the prey and rises again.
boats are not allowed on the Rödliner lake in the Mecklenburg lake district. Only the fisherwoman, Sabine Reimer-Meissner is not allowed to meld in the conservation area of traps. 18 lakes has leased out – the only fisherwoman of Mecklenburg, which operates the fisheries of this scale. The Rödliner lake is a 2200 in the lakes richest state in Germany. It is also the largest Lake in Germany is lake müritz.

"We are shaped by the water," says Sabine Reimer-Meissner, "we fish like a hundred years ago." You controls one of the thin, wooden piles, which protrude from the water, leans over, puts a heavy Reuse into the boat, and empties you." The fisherman's heart is happy." Five big, shiny eels, snake boots to her rubber. Also a roach you caught and a number of crayfish. The Rudd are still small, they fly back into the water.
"We Mecklenburger live with and by nature", said Sabine Reimer-Meissner, while it closes a hole in the Trap with a fishing needle waste. Nature, there are a lot of in Mecklenburg-Western Pomerania, tourism plays an important role. "But the tourist flow over flow in the direction of the Baltic sea and the Islands to the left and to the right of us," says the 48-year-old fisherwoman. Sabines farm nets hang to Dry, old device lying around. Here the fish is processed: smoked or sour boiled down.
Former hunting territory of the Mighty
From the water to the forest: We meet Ralf Wendt, a nature guide who will show us the Müritz national Park. Mecklenburg-Vorpommern has the most national parks of all the provinces, 3 out of a total of 16. The Müritz national Park, with 322 square kilometers, the largest of them all. 72 percent of which cover forests, 13 percent of lakes, and 5 percent Moore.
We take the car on a track that is wavy like a squashed carpet. "By the state of Mecklenburg-Western Pomerania, a terminal moraine arc stretching from Poland to the state of Schleswig-Holstein", says Ralf Wendt, 53, "power, our area is nice and hilly."

forests, which are not used by people, are extremely rare in Germany, virgin forests exist in Western Europe. Until the end of the middle ages, the German forest was cut down. "Three days before the reunification, the people's chamber of the GDR, has prepared the establishment of the national parks," says Ralf Wendt, while we walk to beech and spruce in the past. To East times, the forests, the hunting territory of the Mighty, the population had no access.
In the Müritz national Park you can visit, what happens when man leaves nature alone. "Here we have a pine, which is 240 years old. This is completely abnormal in any sector of the forest." Nestled in the large pine, a beech. It looks like they were dancing the Tango. "Such a thing would not tolerate a Forester," says the nature guide. In the distance we hear the grinding and creaking. "These are trees that are fallen, and RUB. Here, everything is left as it is."
New lebensrau mouse totem wood
Over a marsh, a hawk is stalking. Earlier there was a Meadow that was used for hunting and hay-making. After the Park had closed the drainage ditches, was a Moor. Also, the level of the pig's garden, lake, rose. A rare morbid picture of our eyes: In the deep black of the water, a Swan couple, dark brown trunks floats drifting on the lake. On the edge of the bark-free Stumps of dead trees. On the shores of reeds grows, rushes swaying in the Wind. As the water level rise, from the shores of the trees in the Wet and died. Your wood is now a habitat for many animals.
"As a child, I am with the cart running through the forest, and I collected wood to burn it at home," recalls Ralf Wendt. Today he wants to raise the awareness of the people: The dead wood is important for the forest because it is Humus that feeds the next generations.
