The Pötenitzer Wiek is an eastern bay of the lower Trave east of the Priwall Peninsula, Germany. The bank also partly forms the border between Schleswig-Holstein and Mecklenburg-Vorpommern. Until the Second World War, the Pötenitzer Wiek was a take-off and landing location for domestic seaplanes and functioned as the airport at that time for the Priwall airbase Luftwaffe. The name is due to the Mecklenburgian locality of Pötenitz, which belonged to the city Dassow.
