KdF - Koloss von Ruegen, Ostseebad Binz

If you've ever wondered what a Nazi beach resort might look like, visit KdF - Koloss von Ruegen, built between 1936 and 1939 to be just that. It consists of almost 5 km (3 mi) of bleak buildings stretching along the coast of Rügen. Hitler's vision for Prora was a gigantic sea resort with room for 20,000 vacationers. Plans for the resort were abandoned with the onset of World War II, and the buildings saw only sporadic use in the following decades, so remains were largely abandoned. Today, you can stay at the large youth hostel that has been opened on the site or visit the museum, which documents the history of the site and features items from the GDR.

  • A new promenade leads from BINZ to Prora, surrounded by forests and Baltic Sea. Hope, that in the summer no range lines with the cyclists there. The building itself is impressive. Erstaulich, from a 30s a modern residential complex to develop colossus.

  • But unfortunately no longer to see much of the old construction services. The renovation and revision is already relatively far advanced so that the old buildings not much is to recognize. Here a unique story in favor of new homes will be lost.

  • The former building of the KdF are modernized and rebuilt into hotel rooms and luxury apartments... well what can I say, I can not imagine to live there. Even if the views towards the sea is perfect, the views along the kilometre-long buildings is rather strange. Despite all this worth a trip on the beach of BINZ to Prora!
