Arkona Things to Do

  • Eh-oh, did I wander into Tellytubbyland?

    Any parent who has been exposed to BBC's Ceebeebees channel will have endured the insufferable antics of Tinkywinky, Dipsy, Laalaa and Po - or, as Oliver Postgate (pioneer of vintage British TV programmes such as Ivor the Engine, Noggin the Nog and Bagpuss) once so contemptuously described them, those "awful, post-nuclear jellybabies". Not being...

  • The peculiarly proportioned...

    This dinky vessel looks as though it would be more at home in someone's bath than on the high seas, but apparently has a long and distinguished record in sea rescues, which goes to show that you shouldn't make judgements based on appearances!Apparently the trick is that the hull is loaded with lead, so regardless of how rough the sea or how high...

  • Admire Cape Arkona's splendid...

    Cape Arkona's lighthouses are impressive, and a cluster of smaller buildings has grown up around them, which make it a pleasant place to wander around. There is a small but well stocked souvenir shop, and it's also possible to take a pleasant stroll along the chalk cliffs.There is a nice restaurant with a beautiful garden on the path between the...

    We bought some delicious pastry from an old age pensioner and his family at a food stall along the road.

    Favorite Dish: Coffee and excellent pastry. We had a luxury beach chair in which to enjoy our food and drink.

Arkona Off The Beaten Path

  • Hidden camp site

    Shortly after we'd left Cape Arkona, we passed by this naturist camp site that goes by the name of 'Regenbogen' (in English it would most likely be called Camp Rainbow). We noticed the windbreaks that seemed to turn every single plot into a sort of compound, effectively shielding it off from the outside world.

  • Riesenberg

    While biking through the countryside on your way to Cap Arkona, be sure to reserve some time to visit this megalithic tomb 'Riesenberg' between the villages of Goor and Vitt.

  • Beach at Gellort

    Exploration of the northernmost part of the island Ruegen, the beach at Gellort. You'll find some huge rocks here, the so-called Findlingsteine.
