Arkona Off The Beaten Path: 4 reviews and 5 photos
Exploration of the northernmost part of the island Ruegen, the beach at Gellort. You'll find some huge rocks here, the so-called Findlingsteine or 'foundling stones' in English. Presumably they received that name because they've turned up in this place and it was not apparent where they came from, scientists have meanwhile learned that they were transported to these regions during the Ice Ages. In a technical sense, they can therefore be called 'glacial erratic boulders', but of course it is much nicer to call them Findlingsteine.
