Weekend Trip to Jasmund National Park, Klein Jasmund, Germany
Reviews > Europe > Germany > Klein Jasmund > Weekend Trip to Jasmund National Park
First, this was a 2.5 days weekend trip to Ruegen. Just to let you know that this will be no detailed description of the island itself...
Well, to get there we were taking the train from Potsdam to Sassnitz. That is quite moderate when you buy a 'Ostseeticket', if possible. 40 Euros there and back within 9 days for the first person, any further person pays 30 Euros. For the nights we were setting up at very nice and clean camping ground in Nipmerow, about 8 km north of Sassnitz (http://www.ruegen-naturcamping.de/). It's right at the entrance to the national park. And it's absolutly affordable!
Now, Jasmund National Parkis very famous for it's cliffs, white chalk cliffs rather. Especially the so called 'Koenigsstuhl' is well known and probably most Germans have already seen it on pictures (http://www.koenigsstuhl.com/). However, it's not worth it to pay the entrance to that national park centre. You'll have plenty of impressive moments and views at several other places along the shore line.
In our case, we were brought from our camping ground to Sassnitz via bus shuttle. By the way, you can have excellent bread rolls with fish there. Delicious! From Sassnitz you can go all the way back to Nipmerow along the shore line either down at the water or above the cliffs in a beautiful beech grove. The track is signposted well and takes you about 4 hours at least. But probably longer because there's much to see! Nature galore! =)
Wasn't my last time on Ruegen. I'll be back! But next time for longer, definitely.

Recommended Dusseldorf Guide
Although the first written records of Dusseldorf date back to the 12th century, the first signs of settlement in the area became apparent around the 7th century AD. During the Roman occupation, a few Germanic tribes obstinately clung to their territories on the banks of the Rhine, and at the dawn of the Frankish Empire, a few small fishing villages were already flourishing at the confluence of River Dussel and the Rhine. Dusseldorp, as it was called at the time, was not terribly important until the 13th century. In fact, the Frankish king, Barbarossa, was more preoccupied with fortifying the nearby town of Kaiserswerth, which became a... Read more »
