KdF - Koloss von Ruegen, Ostseebad Binz
(3.1/5 based on 440+ reviews on the web)
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 few km north of Binz is Prora. Funky, grotesque building with an interesting history. A large part is still empty. But parts of the huge house was, and is, being renovated to apartments. Before coming out to the sand beach is 100 m through a pine forest. Here are some Sunday walkers, now in november and some property. The hostel (in the North of the House) is closed and the sports site's fate. The tour ended in October and will not start until spring. Nevertheless, it is worth a visit.

  • A place with history and dark mood somehow oppressive. The majority fall into a small part of Edelrenoviert - somehow does not match

  • Very interesting but a bit depressing looking at this ruins feeling times from the past. Nice to see the renovated houses.
