    You can visit the lighthouse. You can also get married here. Otherwise, of course, there are the classic souvenirs

    You can climb the lighthouse. You can also get married here. Otherwise, you should definitely wander from here to Vitt!

    Always worth a visit! The best time after 17.00, when the mass of tourists has disappeared again!

    A must on every visit to the island of Rügen, whether in summer or in winter. On our visit, both lighthouses were unfortunately closed, but also from the outside worth seeing. Absolutely go further above the cliffs to the northernmost point Rügen.

    The ascent to Lighthouse is not very easy on the last stretch, because then after you have made the 102 steps over a small iron ladder up to the observation deck, but it's worth it

    Karl Friedrich Schinkel was not only the architect of the Schinkel Tower on Cape Arkona. Also, the tower of the hunting lodge Granitz (south of Binz) was built according to his plans.

    Even from afar, as in the picture book of the north, greet the two lighthouses on Cape Arkona. They belong together with the Peilturm, the fishing village Vitt and the ramparts of the temple castle Arkona to the surface monument.
    On the cape stood around 1160 the last fortress of the Slavs. It was finally conquered by the Danes, which at the same time kept Christianity on Rügen. In order to increase the safety of the ships circumnavigating the cape, the oldest lighthouse on the Baltic coast was built in 1826/27 to a design by Karl Friedrich Schinkel. The nearly 20-meter-high square brick building not only fulfills its function as a building-like monument, but also fulfills the task of a registry office. Since 1902, flares have been emitted by the new, 35 m high round tower.
    The former imperial naval tower is open as a museum with a viewing platform.
    The up to 46m high cliff offers an impressive sight.
    The Cape Arkona is now one of the main attractions of Ruegen. For the protection of nature, the entire area has been designated as a low-traffic zone. On foot, with a horse-drawn carriage or with the Arkonabahn you can reach the towers, the castle complex and the fishing village Vitt from the collective parking lot

    The tow-tower and the beacon mark Cape Arkona from afar. It was interesting for me that Schinkel, who built several brick buildings in Wilhelmshaven (near my home), was also active here.

    Cape Arkona is located 45 meters above the Baltic Sea on the northeastern tip of the headland. However, the steep cliffs, consisting of chalk and boulder clay, are not only fascinating due to their geographical location. Because on the surface monument Cape Arkona you can make on foot a time travel through the cultural history of the island of Rügen. In April 2003 we were here. Absolutely recommended highlights.

    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 the place of worship of the Ranen, the almost northernmost point of Rügen is one of the most popular destinations on the island. From the cliff you have an impressive view over the Baltic Sea.

    The architect Karl Friedrich Schinkel has also participated in another attraction on Rügen. The tower of the hunting lodge Granitz was also built according to his plans.

    Three towers on the Cape for the seafaring

    The towers of Cape Arkona offer the unique opportunity to combine a museum visit with a magnificent view over the island of Rügen, Hiddensee to Denmark. At the North Cape you can enjoy the uniqueness of three sea-going towers in one place.

    The Schinkelturm
    In the Schinkelturm, the ascent of the handmade staircase is rewarded with an exhibition about seafaring and the history of the beacon.

    The beacon Cape Arkona
    The beacon Cape Arkona is fully worth its ascent of at least 180 steps as a fully functional lighthouse. Look over the entire peninsula Wittow, over Rügen and of course over the sea and Hiddensee. In good weather you can make out on the horizon the white cliffs of the Danish island of Møn.

    The tow tower
    If you are interested in archaeological research, you can see selected exhibits from the neighboring Ranenburg area in the Peilturm. Changing art exhibitions and a studio under the glass dome are also home to the somewhat remote Peilturm.
