The municipality of Nienhagen, Mecklenburg-Vorpommern lies on the Baltic Sea coast between the oldest German seaside spa of Heiligendamm and Warnemünde. Large parts of the municipal territory are forested. West of the village lies Nienhagen Wood (Nienhäger Holz) immediately behind the high sea cliffs which roughly measure roughly 12 m (39 ft). This mixed forest is circa 180 hectares (1.8 km2) in area and is called Ghost Wood (Gespensterwald) by the locals. The origin of this description is not exactly known, but is probably derived from its coastal strip of the wood, which 1,250 m (4,100 ft) long and around 100 m (330 ft) wide, and is mainly stocked with beech and a few oaks. The beech trees, in particular, have been shaped by the sea winds, grow mainly on one side and have twisted, snake-like branches, which gives them a ghostly appearance especially at twilight and in the mist.
