landscape
The Darß is part of the former islands Fischland, Darß and Zingst. The peninsula is part of the Western Pomerania Lagoon Area National Park. The surrounding of Wieck is famous for being a resting place for tens of thousands of migrating cranes and geese. Tourism has long been a source of income and been increased after the German reunification, but the Darß is still far from becoming a crowded tourist place.

history
For centuries Wieck belonged to the Dutchy of Pomerania and became Swedish after the Thirty Years' War. After Napoleon, Wieck became in 1815 Pomeranian again. After World War II it was part of the district Ribnitz-Damgarten. Wieck now belongs to the federal state of Mecklenburg-Vorpommern.
