Rügen Island and Chalk Cliffs, Rügen, Germany
Rügen in the Baltic Sea is Germany’s largest island and offers a variety of landscape features and things to see and do – from buzzing seaside resorts to sleepy fishing villages, from parks, gardens and tree-lined avenues to palaces and stately homes. A highlight is Jasmund National Park, part of a UNESCO World Heritage site and home to the famous Königsstuhl chalk cliffs. At the Königsstuhl National Park Centre, you can explore a world full of mysteries as you learn about the key message of leaving nature to its own devices. Various themed rooms take you on a journey back to the origins of Rügen.
