    "Deeply nestled in a ravine close to the Cape Arkona are the thatched houses of the old, picturesque fishing village Vitt.
    The fishermen offer their small boats trips around the Cape Arkona. The deep cut of the bays, the steep coast and the area monument Kap Arkona also form an impressive backdrop from the sea. A highly recommended adventurous and beautiful experience. "Source:

    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.

    Vitt a small fishing village directly on the high shore path still shows the origins. From here, the chalk cliffs and the cape Arkona are easily recognizable, if you did not find a staircase to get there.

    Small fishing village where you think time has stopped, especially in winter, when the place is not crowded with tourists.

    Actually, this place has disappointed me
    Too many people here - but that was foreseeable.

    mic has actually surprised that it does not cost admission, but it is really worth seeing, very quaint. You can also eat here in a small restaurant and a few fish stalls, you should definitely make a detour to the Starnd!
