Also the quarters Dąbie (old dam), Podejuch (Podjuchy) and Colbatz (Kołbacz) eastern the or are surrounded by forest areas, the book heath (Puszcza Bukowa, to 149 m and.NN) and the Gollnower heath (Puszcza Goleniowska).

Between these two Endmoränen the river valley broad up to five kilometers runs - Westoder and Ostoder from the main arms (Odra Zachodnia and Odra Wschodnia) limit. Those into numerous Flussarme divided or with numerous Flussinselnis enough into the city. Directly south the city begins the GermanPolish national park lower Odertal, which extends over Schwedt/ or to close Hohensaaten.

North the town center widens the or to a large lake, the Damm lake (Jezioro Dąbie), up. At a value of policy (Pölitz) the river finds the way back again into (very broad) a bed, before it expand itself again (Roztoka Odrzańska), which flows with Trzebież (goat place) into the Stettiner Haff.Over the Kanał Piastowski (emperor travel) and the Swine (Świna) with Świnoujście (Swinemünde) the open Baltic Sea is reached.

In the closer city the Westoder (Odra Zachodnia) and the Ostoder ( Odra Wschodnia) are appropriate , as well as for the old cross connections Parnitz and Dunzig, numerous Flussinseln between the two main arms of the river:

  • Directly opposite the island is appropriate for the old part of town Lastadie (Łasztownia), which Hans-moves away over is reached. The quarters Lastadie borders directly on the area of the sea port.
  • North of it, between Westoder, Duńczyca and or Dunzig channel (Kanał Grodzki), the small, vacant island butcher meadow ( Wyspa Grodzka) lies.
  • South of Lastadieif the island silver meadow ( Kępa Parnicka) lies, ditch (Kanał Zielony) and Parnitz by Westoder, green one ( Parnica) surround. The silver meadow is completely cultivated. The island was in former times by the station bridge with directly opposite lying main station connected, the bridge is enoughtoday only up to the small ear island in the Westoder. By further bridges the silver meadow is connected with Lastadie and with the new silver meadow.
  • The new silver meadow bordering south (Wyspa Zielona) is cultivated only to a small part, the islandresulted from the building of the Parnitz Durchstichs.

There the island in the middle in the area of the sea portlies, the Flussarme with the building of the harbor basins were strongly changed. Thus a part of the Dunzig was filled up, whereby a direct land connection with Lastadie developed. The northward open Breslauer travel (Kanał Dębicki) became thereby a dead end. By the or Dunzig channelin the west of the island the butcher meadow specified already was separated. The Dunzig Parnitz channel created a connection between the two Flussarmen. In the west of the Grabower Werders allotments and forest cover.
  • North of it the Bredower Werder ( Wyspa Gryfia) lies, completely ofport is taken. The Westoder surrounds it, in the east the Grabower travel (Kanał Grabowski) and the Oderfahrt in the west (Przekop Mieleński).
