With over 800 kilometres of designated cycle paths and hiking trails, Rügen island is a paradise for active explorers. Miles of fine-sandy bays and natural beaches lure to find fossils and amber. Many trails lead to the high banks of the peninsulas Wittow in the north, Jasmund in the northeast or Mönchgut in the southeast of the island. Magical paths along the high shores of Jasmund peninsula with Germany’s smallest national park and its imposing chalk cliffs offer an ever-changing impression through the seasons.
Whoever travels without bike, can rent one in numerous places. Experience Germany’s biggest island either on one of the cycle paths alongside the road or else far away from streets and traffic, in the natural surroundings, through forests or along the coast with ever-changing views and resting spots in idyllic places.
The historic off-road vehicles take you to the hidden gems that other tourists never see. Explore secret chalk lakes, mining with panoramic views over the Jasmund peninsula and grand stone graves from the Neolithic Age.
Rügen’s landscape has a vivid play of colours: the deep blue sea, white chalk cliffs, colourful meadows, golden yellow fields and green forests. Experience Rügen island, Hanseatic city of Stralsund and the nearby Baltic Sea from a different perspective. The flight time varies from 20 to 60 minutes depending on tour.
