RÜGEN (picture shows the 'Königsstuhl')
The well.known chalk cliffs and the natural landscapes around the bays called Jasmunder Bodden are typical for this region.From view points like Tempelberg or at Hoch Seelow you can see Hiddensee Island or Kap Arkona ,the northernmost point of the island. An attraction of the handsom village Lohme is the harbour with has just been reopened after reconstruction in 1997. Sagard,the place of the local office,has a late brick-built church. Previous reetorations hav been undertaken to improve the appearance of the village.In the village Bobbin there is one of the oldest churches of Rügen.The former fishing village Glowe attracts many tourists with its wihite sandbeach. Jasmund Natinal Park,30 spuare kilometres of forest,is one of the smallest of its kind in Germany. Its area encloses Stubnitz Forest,springs,lakes,moors,rivulets and the costal part of the Baltic Sea. The shining white chalk coast between Sassnitz and Lohme is Germany's highest and most attractive sea-coast. Only here there are kilometres of cliffs made of chalk. Rare plants,like many species of orchids,grow there .Ruegen's highest point is also situated in Jasmund National Park. It is 161 metres above sea - level-the Piekberg.The Königsstuhl, 117 metres high,and the Wissower Klinken are without any doubt the most famous spots. The National Park and its chalk cliffs can be discovered by bicycle,hiking,riding and tours bv boat from Sassnitz Harbour.
