on the island of Rügen
When one is on holiday, one would of course like not only to relax but also to have some good time. Here are some suggestions of how you can make your holiday a memorable one.
If you would like to eat something delicious, to have a good drink or to enjoy a cool cup of ice-cream, you have to go to the “Mückenwirtschaft”. You will find there:
The beach in the Prorer Wiek is one of the best on the island. It is 5 km long and up to 40 m wide. The completely fine sand appears white. Water quality is very good. There are also some sections for those who love nudism.
Towards Mukran, on the other side of the quay wall, the beach becomes more and more stony. As you move inland you will come to the flint stone fields.
Beach sections guarded by the water rescue service are located towards Binz. Generally the depth of the water in the bay rises very slowly, but this changes whenever there is a storm.
In this largest forest ropes course on the island of Rügen, you will be able to enjoy fun and action
in a child and family friendly environment. This comes with a high level of quality and customer service.
The offer also includes:
The Colossus of Prora
The Colossus of Prora which was planned for 20,000 holidaymakers as the longest building in the world was never completed. The foundation stone was laid in 1936. Architect Clemens Klotz was contracted by the National Socialists to construct the building. By 1939 the shell structures of the eight blocks for guests (each measuring 550 m in length) were complete. Work on other structures was partly started. When the war started, work was stopped.

for bikers - the Rügen circular route
The bicycle track through Prora is part of the route along the coast of Rügen.
You can find interesting bicycle tours at "radfahren-auf-ruegen.de".
The official bicycle track around Rügen lies on the Baltic Sea coastal route (D2). There are now more than 300 km of bicycle tracks on the island of Rügen. Depending on the condition, however, you can avoid the narrow-gauge railway “Rasender Roland” or ships belonging to the white fleet and trains of the German Railway Company (DB) by getting on the bus with a bicycle carrier/trailer - “Radzfatz”.
