    The northernmost point of Germany is the elbow on Sylt, here is probably the northernmost point of East Germany.

    Hiking necessarily. The detour is worthwhile

    The Siebenschneiderstein (Söbenschniedersteen) is an erratic block on the island of Rügen. It is located about 30 m from the cliff of Gellort on the Baltic Sea beach, one kilometer northwest of Cape Arkona. It has a mass of 165 t and a volume of 61 m³ and, like around 20 other erratic boulders, is one of the legally protected geotopes on the island of Rügen.

    The stone is not the largest erratic boulder on Rügen (that's the Buskam with 600 m³), but it marks the fourth largest erratic boulder in Rügen, the northernmost point of the island and thus East Germany. It is made of Karlham granite.

    To get to the beach offers this way stop. Something to watch the descent ... unequal distances ... holes ...

    The northernmost point of Germany is not here, but it's still beautiful! And the flow of visitors to Arkonas reaches this point at a significantly reduced rate.

    The exact name for this hiking highlight would be Gellort. The big stone at the bottom of the stairs is the Siebenschneiderstein. At the Gellort the high shore way starts direction Bakenberg.

    Interesting viewpoint at the northern tip of Ruegen. View of the "Siebenschneiderstein".
    With a little luck, you can watch seals.

    From Gellort, the northernmost point of the island of Rügen, it is only 70 km to Sweden and only 50 km to the island of Mon (Denmark). On a clear day, the chalk cliffs of Mon can be seen from Gellort.

    Very beautiful and extensive beach, also for dogs. The beach is about 100 steps down ...

    Cape Arkona
    On the peninsula Wittow, in the north of the island Rügen, is a 45 meters high, consisting of chalk and Geschiebemergel steep coast - Cape Arkona. Once a place of worship of the Ranen, Rügen's almost northernmost point is one of the most popular destinations on the island today. From the cliff you have an impressive view over the Baltic Sea and the highest probability for the best weather.

    133 steps to the beach then the northernmost point of Rügen is reached. Wind conditions are already different than 100 m inland.
    Don't underestimate it.

    Here it is worth going down the stairs to take a few steps on the bank.

    Nice way to Cape Argon, not the direct road.

    The lighthouse can be visited. You can also marry at Cape Arkona.

    all the same, would be too boring for a hiker. You want to experience something and consciously do something. ;-)
