Representing some of the highest sand dunes in Europe, provide picturesque views in an unusual setting. You can walk to the top of one of the highest dunes, Parnidis (52 m (171 ft)), via a clearly marked wooden staircase. It is forbidden to go off path, as this contributes to the deterioration of the already endangered dune. An observation point offers views of the Baltic Sea, Curonian Lagoon, and the Russian exclave of Kaliningrad across the border. The sundial situated here was erected in the mid-1990s but looks considerably older due to storm damage. For travelers who use our world travel planner, Nida holidays become easier to arrange, with trips to the Nida Dunes and other attractions mapped out and timetabled.

  • There are a number of types of dunes near Nida. On the Parnidis walk that begins just south of the town you see there are multiple and especially the impressive Parnidisduin. The walk is only 1.8 km and the views from the dune is breathtaking. Also along the way there are beautiful pieces and you also comes in a piece of forest. An absolute must if you are in the area!

  • The dunes are truly unique and impressive! Sometimes they fall steeply up to 50 m. Swans down on the lagoon in the bushes, we saw a moose on the water and high up in the sky the cranes to the departure rallied to the South. Small Russian patrol boats on the border can be seen with binoculars. A walk to the lookout point is also worthwhile.
