This impressive hike takes you to the unique chalk cliffs and through the autumnal beech forests of the UNESCO World Heritage Site in the Jasmund National Park. It is not for nothing that the Hochuferweg has been voted one of the top 10 most beautiful German hiking trails several times.With the regional express or the Intercity you can easily get from Berlin and Hamburg to Sassnitz. Alternatively, you can also travel by car. The tour starts at the parking lot above the Sassnitz zoo in Stubbenkammerstraße. After only a few hundred meters you will be spoiled with a breathtaking view of the Baltic Sea. From now on it goes along the steep coast.One fantastic vantage point follows the next: the Wissower Klinken, a former landmark of Rügen before its crash in 2005, and the Ernst-Moritz-Arndt view, from which you can see large parts of the chalk coast. You will also come across the legendary pirate canyon. The legendary pirate Störtebeker is said to have had his retreat here.The high bank path leads you through the magnificent beech forests of the UNESCO World Heritage Site to the small stump chamber with a view of Victoria. The view of the Königsstuhl is simply breathtaking. At 118 meters high, it is the highest and most famous rock on the Rügen chalk coast. In the National Park Bistro you can fortify yourself with regional and ecological dishes when you've had enough of the views.At the end, you can either hike back the same way or take the hiking bus to Sassnitz. All stops in the Jasmund National Park are served every half hour in summer and every hour from 9 a.m. to 7 p.m. in winter.
