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.

  • Force could imagine anything purely through Freude...ich including. So we went totally uneingenommen there bzw.ich. My friend visited this place once before ca. 8 years. Upon arrival I was equal to decades in the past moved back by now. This gray building from the 2.Weltkrieg, which lined the entire beach superfunds one. Some ruins. Worth seeing the Museum housed in block 2, which allowed a time travel in this period. The idea of this seaside resort of KDF until to the facilities of the rooms or Kämmerchen.Fertiggestellt this seaside resort was times Yes nie...zu GDR it was then used for the "Army". After German reunification, it stood still long and was dedicated to the decay. Now for me the slightly bitter Beigeschmack.Wie by the media are already known, some blocks, renovated by private investors. It created luxury condominium, and apartment. A hotel is already built, as well as some shops. .. Bakers etc. The Museum in block 2 has still no investor future ungewiss...ich found the contrast between the grey blocks, which reflect 2 stories and the renovated "blocks of luxury" quite contrary. My opinion, is the story away restored simply. I could go there don't drink coffee. Fazit...unbedingt view, very instructive for young and old. Seaside resort of KDF in Prora. ...ist a must when you are on Rügen.

  • I was there with my family and it was very educational and worth seeing. Our son has learned a lot about the old story. I will definitely recommend it.

  • If you know the history of this object, this object is already impressive. Meanwhile, the rebuilding is in full swing. A part is already completed and opened as a hotel. Really nice it has not become but new. As always, a matter of taste!
