Island Rugen. Cape Arkona

Rügen is Germany's largest island located in off the north-eastern coast of co untry in the Baltic Sea. It is much mythologised in the German national imagination. Frequented in the late 19th and early 20th century by the country’s good and great, including Bismarck, Thomas Mann and Einstein, its chalk coastline was also immortalised by Romantic artist Caspar David Friedrich in 1818. 

Cape Arkona is the tip of the Wittow peninsula, just a few kilometres north of the Jasmund National Park.
