Rügen is Germany's largest island. It lies in the Baltic Sea near the northeastern province of Mecklenburg-Vorpommern. The island has been popular with visitors since bathing became fashionable in the nineteenth century.

Painter Caspar David Friedrich's picture Kreidefelsen auf Rügen made the chalky white cliffs on the island famous and today there are numerous seaside resorts around the island. The cliffs at Rügen are as high as 161 metres above sea level (about as high as the Blackpool Tower) and you can follow a clifftop coastal path to enjoy wonderful sea views and enjoy some delicious German fare in the Waldhalle Gaststätte.
