Holidays on Rügen
A range of interesting tourist attractions and an impressive spectacular natural landscape are waiting to be discovered close to the hotel grounds. The Cliff Hotel Rügen is located in a biosphere reserve right next to the beach on the Mönchgut peninsula that is perfect for extended walks.
Maybe you have already heard of the Königsstuhl („The King’s Chair“) and other points of interest along Rügen’s spectacular White Cliffs coast? Or of Germany’s smallest national park? Or of Kap Arkona, the island’s northernmost point with a Slavic castle and a lighthouse designed by Schinkel? The choice is almost overwhelming, making it difficult to get to know Rügen „really well“.
If you are unsure which cultural highlights to visit, we recommend a trip to Putbus in the south of the island, which boasts a theatre, a circus and a park. You are on holiday; when was the last time you went to see a play, a cabaret, an operetta; do your children enjoy theatre performances aimed at their age group?
Sassnitz fishing harbour is busy as well as romantic and traditional, a thoroughly exhilarating experience! Nature lovers do not actually have to plan any activities at all on Rügen – it’s all on your doorstep, simply enjoy the wide range of cross-country hiking alternatives, or follow the impressive tree-lined avenues to see where they might lead you. However, one road you should not miss out on is the Schwedenstrasse, a theme-trail that tells the exciting story of Sweden’s 180 year-reign over Rügen.
The Festspiele Mecklenburg-Vorpommern festival is a must for music lovers; the programme features organ concerts in village churches, symphony orchestra concerts in barns, and music festivals in the grounds of stately homes and manor houses.
The Störtebeker festival is another unmissable event – a spectacular depiction of the life and times of Germany’s legendary pirate Klaus Störtebeker. After an eventful day spent exploring the island of Rügen, all you need to do is put your feet up and order a picnic hamper from reception. Ready to enjoy another day on the beach, underneath blue skies with views across the sea…
