A national park bordering the Baltic Sea and Rugen Island to the north, Jasmund is known for its towering chalk cliffs, the greatest of which is Königsstuhl (118 meters/387 feet).
A number of tours are put on by the park tourist office, most of them consisting of hikes through the beech forest and wetlands to gorgeous ocean views. Our favorite is the 8.2 km (5.1 miles) walk from the harbor in the fishing village, Sassnitz, along the coastline to the imposing Wissower Klinken cliffs, which, due to erosion, have been periodically collapsing into the ocean. Consult the official site for further options.
Note:The park is about 300 km (186 miles) north of Berlin.
