out of 5

Rügen is Germany's largest island and one of its most popular tourist destinations. It's known for its wide, sandy beaches, dramatic cliffs, and dense forests. Inland, there are lakes, meadows, and hills. Rügen's capital, Stralsund, is a well-preserved medieval town with a 13th-century cathedral and a lively old quarter. The island is also home to the ruins of the 12th-century Rugard Castle.

Visit the seaside village of Sassnitz and take a stroll along the pier, then take a boat to the picturesque Jasmund National Park for a hike through the ancient beech forests. Spend a day in the charming town of Binz, admiring the art nouveau architecture and soaking up the seaside atmosphere. Don’t miss the chance to sample the local seafood – Rügen is famous for its smoked fish, especially the herring and eel.
