Leopoldshagen is a municipality in the Vorpommern-Greifswald district, in Mecklenburg-Vorpommern, Germany.

Geography[edit]

Immediately northwest of Leopoldshagen begins the Anklamer Torfmoor, a protected wetland which runs along the western shore of the Stettin Lagoon to the town of Anklam.

History[edit]

The place was founded in 1748. In 1752 King Frederick II of Prussia named the village in honour of his late general Leopold II, Prince of Anhalt-Dessau (1700–1751).
