The Island of Rügen: Germany's Secret Resort

Full photo story article with photos and text
9 photos, 1,500 words

Mention holiday destinations in Germany to people who don't live there, and the usual hand-full of places will come up: Boat-trips down the Rhine valley, Munich's Oktoberfest, Christmas markets in Cologne and Dusseldorf, Berlin of course, maybe walking in the Black Forest. Suggest though that they could vacation on an idyllic island with beaches and chalk-white cliffs off Germany's Baltic coast and people are flabbergasted. Germany has beach holidays? There are German islands? Does Germany even have a coast? The island of Rügen it seems is well known and beloved by German holiday-makers, but off the tourist map to anyone else in the world.
This article introduces you to Rügen's spectacular Jurassic coastline, with its elegent resorts with piers and sandy beaches where you can hire a Strandkörb and enjoy the warm Baltic sun in style. There are cliff-top walks to explore, light-houses to climb, and other nearby islands to sail to, such as Hiddensee where cars are banned.
