Vitt is located on the northernmost part of Rügen, on the north-eastern end of the Wittow peninsula. Right on the Baltic coast and a stone's throw from Cape Arkona, it lies dormant in a natural recess. Nobody knows exactly when the village originated. It is said to have served as a fishing and trading port for the Slavic natives in the 10th century and belonged to the neighboring Jaromarsburg on Cape Arkona. It was first mentioned in documents on May 25, 1290, when the Rügen prince Witzlaw II granted the place the right and the freedom of fishing. In the fishing village, a narrow ravine opens to the sea, revealing the view of the steep cliff from the cape. A stone pier protects the harbor and the village at a "stiff breeze". To be on the safe side, the Vitter pull their boats up to this day with a winch on land.
