The Kawcza Mountain lies on Wolin Island, within the area of Wolin National Park. It is situated in Międzyzdroje, in the Kamień County. It lies at a distance of around 0.6 km east of the buildings in the town. There is a marked black trail leading to the top of the hill, which runs along Promenada Gwiazd [Star Promenade] and through the decorative gate of the Wolin National Park made of the bow of a fishing boat standing vertically. Then, the trail leads through a forest up to the peak of the hill. You can also climb the hill by stairs situated on the beach and leading to an observation point.
The Kawcza Mountain, one of the hills of the moraine belt of Wolin Strip, is 61 m AMSL tall. The observation point is situated at 56.9 m AMSL and it can be reached by stairs put into service in 2013. The previous construction was destroyed during a winter storm of 1997 when the stairs were torn off along with a part of the cliff.
Before the war, the hill was very popular among holidaymakers. On the top, there was a wooden building which seated a café run by Werner Hahn. The building had two observation terraces where the guests could sip coffee from china cups. Unfortunately, the war put an end to the operation of the café. Today there are two rocks on top of the hill. One of them commemorates the convention of German foresters of 1892. The other one commemorates the convention of Polskie Towarzystwo Leśne [Polish Forestry Association] of 1992. The Kawcza Mountain is overgrown with beech trees. The observation point offers a view over the Baltic Sea, the Bay of Pomerania, the beach in Międzyzdroje and the ports in Germany. While at the place, you can also follow the black trail to reach a nearby European bison pen.
