The area of the Jasmund National Park was shaped by inland glaciers during the last ice age. The most famous face of the national park, far beyond Rügen, are the typical chalk cliffs with the Königsstuhl and the Wissower Klinken. Due to the storm-exposed location of Jasmund, the steep banks are active to the present day, i.e. erosion processes take place again and again, which gradually shift the coastline into the hinterland.
The National Park Vorpommersche Boddenlandschaft is located on the Baltic Sea and Bodden coast of Vorpommern in the area of the peninsula Darß-Zingst and the waters west of the island of Rügen. It is a representative section of the balancing coast as well as the shallow water zone of the Baltic Sea.
The Southeast Rügen Biosphere Reserve is located in the southeast of the Baltic Sea island of Rügen. Fine, wide sandy beaches on the Baltic Sea coast alternate with rugged cliffs, at the foot of which imposing block beaches have been created. The beech forests of the Granitz invite you to hike along the steep coast. Thus, southeast Rügen has an extraordinary diversity of nature and landscape, which was declared a biosphere reserve in 1990.
