The island of Vilm is located in the bay of Rügen, it mainly grows beech and oak trees. Since 1936, the island has been protected and since 1990 part of the Biosphere Reserve Southeast Rügen. In GDR times, the island was reserved for government members of the GDR. Today, the buildings are used by the Federal Agency for Nature Conservation. A trip to Vilm starts in Lauterbach, the port of the former princely residence Putbus on Rügen. From there, the motor ship "Julchen" leaves daily from March to October. A maximum of 60 visitors a day are allowed to enter the small natural paradise as part of guided tours. A prior registration with the passenger shipping company Lenz is absolutely necessary.
