Hike @ Flensburg

Near Flensburg at the Baltic Sea we went on a hike along the coast through a natural reserve called Geltinger Birk, a mixture of dunes, moorland, salt marsh and forest.

Beach rose – Kartoffelrose or Apfelrose in German

Rosa rugosa grows on beach coastlines, often on sand dunes. It is extremely tolerant of seaside salt spray and storms, commonly being the first shrub in from the coast. This rose is native to Eastern Asia and is considered an invasive species in seashores of Northern Europe.
