Bike Touring Highlight
Prora is a bit confusing for the first time visitor. Here is a little orientation
The hostel is the northern start of the building. Shortly behind it comes the Museum Prora Center.
prora-zentrum.de In the museum there is information about the history and also guided tours
This is followed by a section with unused building parts and partially used areas.
This is followed by a first block that is turned into apartments.
This ends the first building complex.
You come now in the middle, clearly recognizable by the one realized central wing with the blue semicircular building. Here is the Documentation Center Prora.
Again, there are exhibitions and guided tours. I personally thought that was worth seeing (€ 6 admission)
From here on, it gets bizarre, now you get into the "New Prora" Dust gives way to asphalt, wheels give way to Porsche Cayennes and BMW X5. This is crowned by the luxury hotel in the middle of the building.
Sounds critical? Yes, but it is exactly because of these contrasts a visit that I can recommend. With this orientation, you can choose what you want to see.

Prora is a district of the municipality Binz on Rügen. It is located directly on the Baltic Sea coast in the center of the Prorer Wiek and emerged from the built between 1936 and 1939, but unfinished KdF Seebad Rügen. In the complex, the organization Kraft durch Freude (KdF) was intended to enable 20,000 people to holiday at the same time. The beginning of the Second World War in 1939 prevented the completion as a seaside resort.
Most of the buildings are renovated and furnished
