You must visit Kap Arkona and exploring architecture in this area. Nice views from the top of the light house. You can not drive there by car, you need to make your way either by foot, train or bus service.

Intresting place in the North with 2 light houses, White cliffs, old Military marine base and big Stones (7-Schneiderstein). Beautiful view from the top of the lighthouse.

Kap Arkona is very busy but, since it covers a large area, does not feel crowded. We enjoyed a long walk, a fairly swift visit to the tourist shops and a coffee/snack

This area is overexploited and very touristified. Nice walk on the beach north of Vitt and on the ridge above the chalk cliffs to the northernmost point of Germany, but Putgarten and Vitt are a waste. They were probably both nice a few years ago...More

You feel here, like you arrived the end of the world. You look around and ask, if it is the place for life for you. Enjoy it!

Visited the Cape by bike from a nearby campsite using the excellent cycle tracks. Cape area itself and Vitt quite busy but once you got beyond there it was far more pleasant. No real views from the Cape unless you went up either of the...More
