It is its location that makes the Mönchgut peninsula so special: on one side of the bay, on the other the open Baltic Sea. In between, several bays, fjord-like cuts, canals and lakes are characterized by slightly hilly land. During the GDR era, the world was literally over here for many local sailors. The forbidden freedom lay beyond the monk's estate.
Bodo Müller is someone who witnessed this time and can therefore report first hand. More than 40 years ago he was already out and about in his boat at Mönchgut when border guards were still stationed there. In the meantime, Müller has rediscovered his home territory. Much has changed there since the fall of the Wall, but the fascination, the uniqueness of the landscape and the sailing area is still there.
For the YACHT, Bodo Müller has again set course for Mönchgut. He guides you through the area with a lot of love and a deep connection to his homeland. To the old and new ports. To the people who stayed or moved in. To places worth seeing and mysterious places.
His report can now be read in the new YACHT (issue 7/2021, now available in newsagents and as a digital edition and can be ordered directly (click here).
