  • From Putgarten parking area about 20 minutes walk. In light hiking the chalk cliffs can be seen to the North of the island of Rügen. It is aiming for two towers, weather permitting, to recommend places.

  • That it comes only to Putgarten drive and must use a paid parking lot, we knew in advance and made us so from there walk on the 2 km long route through the village and over the fields. Arrived at Cape Arkona was actually aren't that clear up on the lighthouses, what are the places of interest. The Getüdel artist shop, the DGzRS Museum or the closed NVA bunker? Due to poor visibility, it made no sense to climb a lighthouse. All exits were locked up on the violet staircase behind the wall of the Jaromarsburg, but even there we found nothing that would have necessarily justified the arrival. If the view in clear and good weather is not absolutely stunning and amazing, we can not understand what this place supposedly to one of the most popular destinations on Rügen (> 800.000 visitors/a) makes. We are sure not even try it. In the high season another reason are not sure the whole stands and especially souvenir shops open, more coming...

  • You should park his car on the supposedly last parking in front of the Cape Arkona 2 km before the finish. Here you may pay 4 euro for parking, abandoned French fries stands and closed Souvenirmurksläden over for Cape Arkona to wander. It is also a small narrow-gauge railway, it should pay for the actually once 2,50 euro per person. Alternatively, you can take a largely muddy, unattractive trail on foot. There you will find then inevitably and obviously politically wanted wild ragtag, countless souvenir, pottery, crafts, knickknacks stores, that all for useless scrap the remaining money out of your pocket to take one (but fortunately this Season were all closed, as even the half Island). I felt like in a bad Disneyland from "the walking dead". Cape Arkona arrived at was pretty much all because of 'Danger' locked: cliff, mound, stairs down to the beach. Only a viewing platform, but again cost entry was open. And a kind of "Artist village", which wanted to sell "high-quality" art. Oh, Yes: and a "gastronomy", in which I myself not even trust on the toilet. The lighthouses were closed. Do you get only said all of course after it has thrown out a bunch of money for parking, etc.. From the Cape itself, not much is without admission to the viewing platform to see. I can only strongly advise anyone that is even halfway lucid, to give a wide berth to this tourist rip-off!

  • A nice place to the walking with dog or without. Can also take horse-drawn carriage if you want to run. I hope that remains still long us

  • A great place for the hike and walk with the dog to go. Here are all very friendly dogs. The takeaways a bit in the years to come and could use a general cleaning. (Refers to 06/2017)

  • A must for every man, great destination, you arrive at a parking lot and then has the choice of whether you want to drive or walk with the narrow-gauge railway. It is not far away. Great lighthouse with spectacular views. Look if time permits it necessarily in the DDR Museum. Then, it's still in a fishing village, a dream. And if the weather plays along, mega tour.
