Jagdschloss Granitz, Ostseebad Binz
(4.2/5 based on 260+ reviews on the web)
Once a popular holiday destination for European nobility, Jagdschloss Granitz was commissioned by the Prince of Putbus and built between 1838 and 1846. The castle remained in the hands of the Putbus family until the 1940s, when the Nazis seized it. The structure now functions as a museum operated by the state. Walk through the many rooms to learn about the history of the castle and to see the collection of old hunting rifles and furnishings from the 19th century. Head up the cantilevered cast-iron staircase of the main tower for sprawling views in all directions.

  • You can reach (I think only in high season) the hunting castle with various hiking trails (from 1.4 km), shuttle bus (for a fee) from the paid parking or carriage. The walk leads through a beautiful forest with various panels, reflect what quotations about the environment. The hunting Castle, you can look at an exhibition of hunting trophies, portraits and furniture from the history of the Castle and then climb the Tower via a but quite daring steps against admission (€6 per adult). There is a very good view of the island! The admission price is reasonable and the castle is beautiful to look at. However, I recommend the stairs not with children under 6 years (and even older children only on the hand) for people who are not afraid of heights!

  • We went steam locomotive furious Roland to the station Halteplatz Jagdschloß, walked through the fine leaves the forest to the Castle. Small fee for admission, exhibition on the Granitz history and a small souvenir shop. The stairs up to the hunting Castle Tower is nothing for height saving, but a beautiful view awaits. In the park there is a small playground and simple food catering, exhibition on the nature of the area. Recommend for family outing.

  • Good location, food, exhibition. Altogether more than OK for a not very long visit.
  • Nice to see if you are in the region. Tower offers nice view over the whole island
  • Very nice castle, very clean. You can get a great view from the tower.
  • A total rip-off. The rate at the parking lot is € 2 per hour. Knowing that going up and down takes more than an hour, you always pay much more. The parking lots are situated 2 km from the Schloss. If you don't want to spend an hour walking or have difficulty walking, you pay another € 8 for a ride up and down the hill with a stupid touristic train or carriage. Then at the gate of the Schloss, you have to pay another entrance fee. While it is announced at the parking lot that you have to pay inside the Schloss, it's actually outside and you're not even allowed to look at the Schloss from the outside and make a picture without paying. Then if you're stupid enough to pay, for every market booth you have to pay again for whatever they sell to tourists. The staff is very unfriendly - they see tourists only as cash cows and rather see them leave the island if they don't bring money. Rügen at its worst!
  • Great Castle, super all represented. The tower and the stairs are absolute top. Why here but someone a quality mark (??) missing, is absolutely beyond me. The historical (!) Stairs made of steel is absolutely stable, and the in - and outlet to the tower is controlled by employees.
