"The Wissower latches were the main attraction of the Cretaceous and were among the most photographed motifs until February 24, 2005. The two 20 meter high main pinnacles crashed into the sea on the day of February, a year earlier cracks had been discovered A week later, the great demolition, which changed the coastal formation considerably, caused 50,000 cubic meters of chalk to slip into the sea, and the sea breeze was used to blow off the famous battlements Frozen rainwater finally blew up the rock mass after the onset of thawing.
The Wissower Klinken are not, as so often assumed, the model for the painting by Caspar David Friedrich "Chalk cliffs on Rügen". The original motif for the image is located approximately northwest of the Königsstuhl. However, the site is hardly to be found today, because the coastline is subject to constant change, as we were illustrated by the example of the Wissower Klinken. "Source: ruegen-inselinfo.de

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.
