KdF - Koloss von Ruegen, Ostseebad Binz

3.1
#3 of 7 in Things to do in 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.

  • The monstrosity of the building is impressive. Borderline, I find that now - 75 years later Hitler's idea in an altered form is implemented in principle: youth hostel, apartments, etc. I think you would have to work out the historical significance even more clearly even if the official documentation center "MACHTUrlaub" is very good.

  • This huge building on Rügen is a part of German history. It's not nice, but we looked at us still there. At the moment here so much built and fashioned this dismal building in apartments and apartments with direct oceanfront location. Still here, always a weird aftertaste will remain.
