Green beech forest, white chalk cliffs and the blue sea – the Jasmund peninsula on the island of Rügen is one of Germany’s most popular and characteristic landscapes. It is till today, that the painting of the chalk cliffs by painter Casper David Friedrich, an icon of German Romanticism, dominates our image of Rügen’s coast. The old beech forests in the heart of the park are a designated UNESCO World Heritage.
For your own safety: When coming close to the island’s cliff coast, always stay on the designated paths and avoid coming close to the cliff’s edge. Caution, risk of landslides and slips.
