    It is beautiful to walk up through the beech forest and back on the coast. For example, from Sassnitz to the Kieler shore. In this video here I show some impressions and tell you more about it:

    White natural monument

    North of Sassnitz, around the Gakower Ufer, one of the most beautiful hiking trails in Germany begins along the Baltic Sea. The approximately 11-kilometer-long Hochuferweg leads through the Königsstuhl National Park Center to Lohme and just before Glowe. This stretch of coast is characterized by the picturesque, bizarre cliffs with the striking, white glowing chalk cliffs.

    This way you can reach striking points such as the famous Wissower Klinken, the Ernst Moritz Arndt view at Tipper Ort, or the Victoria view and of course the Königsstuhl as the most famous chalk cliff formation in the Stubbenkammer in the Jasmund National Park.

    However, the two main peaks of the Wissower Klinken plunged into the sea in February 2005 and are no longer in the original tectonic formation. In this context, it is also a fairy tale to assume that the famous painting by Caspar David Friedrich "Chalk cliffs on Rügen" depicts the Wissower Klinken, which did not exist at the time the picture was created.

    You can reach the Königsstuhl on foot from the Sassnitz to Lohme hiking trail by bus from Sassnitz. A boat trip to the Stubbenkammer is also very attractive, where you can see the chalk cliffs in all their beauty from the lake side.

    The detour is really worth it. It is the greatest place on the island to experience chalk cliffs. At this point they are really very high and impressive and the walk along the beach teaches you to be really in awe of nature.
    It must be said that rocks have slipped here and there is always a certain danger. Also, something like that does not announce itself, but happens very suddenly.
    The probability is stronger in wet periods, because the rocks are then soaked and heavier. I found it impressive and would recommend it to anyone.

    A walk along the chalk coast is always worthwhile. Great views ... great background noise ... just collect stones (amber or chicken gods) ... or just sit down somewhere and relax!

    The famous chalk cliffs on Rügen stretch over a length of 15 kilometers on the Jasmund peninsula - from Sassnitz to the municipality of Glowe. The sight alone is great, after all, you don't see such imposing white rocks that rise 120 meters high every day. But the story of its origins also astonishes and admires: The rocks were composed more than 50 million years ago from calcareous, fossil-like remains of various small animals that had deposited in the sea and solidified over time to a rock. Together with sand, clay and other rocks, the chalk cliffs we know today formed.

    Gigantic, pure nature ... but watch out ... it is not without danger, the nature there is not predictable

    Parking in the Karl-Liebknecht-Ring in Sassnitz. In the morning, there are still places left on the road, free and close to the forest where the trek to the chalk cliffs begins. Also van / WoMos to 6 meters! :-)

    The chalk cliffs are beautiful, but the beech forests in Jasmund are more beautiful.

    it pays to be here early in the morning. At this time, all the chalk cliffs are lit by the sun!

    The parking lot in the old town almost on the promenade costs € 0.50 for 30 minutes. If you are on the promenade only left along the water after about 1.5 km you are at the pirate gorge.
    Before that you can fortify yourself at the bakery right on the bank, which has great sandwiches.
    It is worth going on in a different way, Piratenschlucht, it is worth it.
    On the way back you have to pass the harbor where some fishing boats are standing and you can eat delicious fish rolls.
    Requirement easy.
    Have fun
