For cyclists & hikers
NEW: E-bike charging station of the municipality of Zierow
Our charging station for e-bikes and pedelecs is located right next to the German Life Saving Society watchtower on Zierow beach during the summer months. Up to four electric bikes can be charged easily and quickly at the same time at the "Charge4Bike" charging station. This charging station allows the e-bike to be parked properly and charged using the sockets integrated into the bike stand. The rider only needs to plug in his charger. The electricity at the charging station is provided by the municipality of Zierow free of charge for all e-bike riders (connection: earthed safety plug; charging power: 3.7 kW.).
While your bike is being "refuelled" effortlessly, you can take a break on the beach, enjoy a swim in the Baltic Sea, take a walk through the beautiful nature in and around Zierow or replenish your energy with a snack for the journey ahead.
During the winter months, the e-bike charging station is located at the Tourist Information and Community Centre.
