- 8 Days / 7 Nights
- Self-guided Tour
Arrival in Stralsund
From the promenade in Stralsund you can see the island of Rugia on the other side of the Stralsund.
Stralsund – Wittow
In the morning the ferry takes you over to Hiddensee Island. On foot you explore this little car-free island. The route leads across heath area from Neuendorf via Vitte to Kloster. In the afternoon you continue by boat along a placid route to Wittow peninsula.
You walk along the cliff coast to the northern cape of the island. Parts of the route lead you charmingly along the beach or the tread. From the ‚Jaromarsburg’, a preserved earth rampart, you get a view far across the Baltic Sea.
Wittow – Sassnitz
In the morning you can either walk along the Bodden or along the Schaabe-beach to Glowe. Cafés and restaurants invite you to a break. Short transfer from Glowe to Königstuhls. From there the route continues via the charming cretaceous coast through Jasmund national park to Sassnitz.
Sassnitz – Binz/Sellin
After breakfast a Bäder-boat takes you to Binz. In Binz a busy promenade invites for a stroll. From the tower of the hunting château Granitz you are rewarded with a breathtaking panoramic view onto the coast and the sea.
Circular Walk Göhren
You walk along the tread all the way to the beach in Baabe and through the Baabe-heath to Göhren. The route into the South of Mönchsgut peninsula can lead as far as your feet can carry you. Return journey by the ‚Rasende Roland’-train from Göhren to Binz or Sellin.
Binz/Sellin – Stralsund
One more time across the ‚Granitz’, then you continue along the Greifswald Bodden to Putbus. This route can be cut short by taking the so-called train ‚Rasender Roland’. Charming walking paths lead you in large parts directly along the Bodden-shores. You take the train from Putbus back to Stralsund.
