If you are going on a trip to Germany, perhaps you will want to visit a seaside resort. And well know that the north coast of Germany is best known in Europe for its many centuries-old seaside resorts. The island of Rügen is this German island that lies in the east, in the Baltic Sea.
Travel to Germany-what to do on the island of Rügen
Famous for its resorts and countless beaches, for its immense chalk cliffs and its national park, the Jasmund, for its waterfowl and its exceptional nature reserves and also for its colossus… the Colossus of Prora.
The Colossus of Prora is a horrible building of abominable ugliness… which promises you a fascinating visit. It is actually a construction that is nearly 5 kilometres long.
It’s from 1937. Originally, the Nazis had it built for holidaymakers. The propaganda project, which was to be the starting point of a larger social project with other holiday places and also cars, was finally never served. The gigantic resort has never welcomed any holidaymaker. The old military zone has only been accessible for about twenty years.
Instead, the Prora building was used as a military hospital. There are no less than five hundred thousand visitors each year on this site, you will have understood, rather strong in emotions because of its origins and its role in a tragic story. But it is far from being all that is to be done on the island of Rügen which is great on the island of Tahiti.
Travel to Germany-an affordable island
Rügen is a tourist destination that has the advantage of offering quality accommodations on an extremely reasonable price range. We recommend the accommodation in the local but there are also many campsites on the island. We usually go by train from the town of Stralsund.
Binz is a famous seaside resort close to Prora. It is the architectural style that represents that of the region but this is where it is probably the most radiant. One of the ends of the XVIIIeme century and the beginning of the next century: The houses are white, massive, very long, with arches everywhere. It’s a pretty magical return in time and a breath of pure air for the lungs.
