Highlights and Things to See in Ribnitz, Stralsund and on Rügen Island

Ribnitz – German Amber Museum
With over 1000 different exhibits, the German Amber Museum is the largest collection of amber in Germany. The museum gives you an overview and historical explanation of how amber is created, collected, and worked into works of fossilized art. Not only can you watch artisans at work as they create things under the Königsberg tradition, you can also try your hand at polishing. In the convent, you will also be able to see the “Dame of the World”.
Stralsund – St Mary’s Cathedral
The monumental construction of St.Mary’s Cathedral in Stralsund isn’t only a house of worship, it is also the silhouette of the city. In 1382, with the destruction of the church tower, a new renovation was begun which reached a height of 150 meters: a bolt of lightening might have hit the first tower, but a baroque helmet took its place. Along with the impressive architecture, St Mary’s offers plenty of things to see inside the old city walls. You can also climb the tower for a panorama view of the city and to Rügen.
The opening of the Rügen Bridge was celebrated in 2007 with a large folk festival and was opened by German Chancellor, Angela Merkel to 2 days of foot only traffic and eventually to automobiles. The 6 lane bridge is the connection from the mainland in Stralsund to the island of Rügen: the old bridge still stands next to it.
Insel Rügen - Hunter’s Castle Granitz
Insel Rügen
The Hunter’s Castle Granitz on the southeaster side of Rügen stands on the 109 meter Tempel Mountain in the middle of the forest. Erected between 1838 and 1846 in the northern Italian Renaissance style, it was a beloved destination for European aristocracy. The Hunter’s Castle was in the possession of the Putbus family until 1944 and welcomed hunters from royal families during hunting season. Today the castle is day trip destination and museum where you can see hunting gear, furniture and exhibits from the 19th Century. You can also reach the top of the middle tower by stairs for a lovely view over the castle and area. You will also be able to visit the "Alte Brennerei" restaurant.
Insel Rügen
Not far from the Hunter’s Castle Granitz is the seaside resort Binz, whose lovely villas aren’t only visible from the bridge, but also from a lovely walk through town. The beach promenade in Binz invites you to stroll and shop at will. Stop by the Kurhaus, which was completely rebuilt after a fire in 1906 and restored again in 2001. The concert hall is also worth a look with its pavilion, the pergolas, and halls. It is also possible to ride the steam train “Rasender Roland” or as we say in English, Racing Roland, but it is recommended to arrange tickets beforehand.
Insel Rügen - King’s Chair
The King’s Chair in the Jasmund National Park is the most famous chalk cliff formation in the area. It was already a popular tourist attraction in the 19th century as well as the Outlook. Painter Caspar David Friederich’s “White Cliffs of Rügen” show this view from the year 1818. There is an admission price to enter the national park’s center to see the King’s Chair, but there are many places to hike along the way and you could find yourself at the Victoria Outlook for a nice view.
Insel Rügen - Cap Arkona Lighthouse
Rügen Kap Arkoan
There are two lighthouses on the island of Rügen at Cap Arkona; The Schinkelturm, a brick structure with a gallery built from 1853 to 1855. Next to that is the newer, higher lighthouse built in 1905 which earned the name Cap Arkona after the Second World War and was used as a coastal watchtower. Also nearby is a former marine bunker of the 6th fleet. The bunker installation is open to visitors. Another visitable site is the Marine Radio Tower, or if you please, you can take the stone steps down to the coast for a closer look, but you need to have sturdy shoes. With a little bit of luck you can find a sea urchin.
