    "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

    One should not pass this ancient tree with its bizarre ramification, an impressive tree personality in an impressive forest

    Jasmund National Park

    The Jasmund National Park was founded on September 12, 1990. It is located on the Jasmund peninsula in the northeast of the island of Rügen in the state of Mecklenburg-Western Pomerania and is 3,003 hectares in size. It is Germany's smallest national park. Since June 25, 2011, part of the beech forest has been a UNESCO World Heritage Site.

    It is beautiful to walk up through the beech forest and back on the coast. For example, from Sassnitz to the Kieler shore. This path also leads past the Wissower latches. In this video here I show some impressions and tell you more about it:

    Great beech forest. The view from the high bank to the chalk cliffs is fantastic.

    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.

    A hike on the coastal border not in the direction of Sassnitz but towards Lohme is also very nice. Lohme is a lovely quiet place with a small harbor.

    Since February 2005, only Fragme have been preserved. The rest crashed into the sea.

    Unfortunately, most of the Wissower Klinken fell into the sea in 2005. Only remnants can be seen.
