Ruegen Island 吕根岛

Ruegen Island ( Insel Rügen) is one of the most popular holiday destinations in Germany. We were there from 27/6 to 30/6/2012.

I loved Ruegen Island because:

1. It is beautiful, quiet and peaceful.
2. It is a great island - with beautiful white chalk cliffs and geological formations, beautiful landscape with sandy beaches, beech forest, fields and rolling hills, beautiful flowers especially roses.
3. I am at home and welcomed in Ruegen Island - thanks to the hospitality of the Wendlandt family.

Ruegen Island is the birthplace of Gerd Wendlandt. He hailed from a family of 3 children. He shared with us many interesting childhood stories, the happy times with his parents and siblings, places he spent his childhood and adolescent years .... It is heart warming.

His elder brother and sister are still staying in Ruegen Island.

Gerd's only brother Reinhard, owner of a software company, and wife Marianne welcomed us warmly to their home, a comfortable white house at Putbus, the main town of Ruegen Island. It has a garden planted with fruit trees, vegetables, berries and beautiful flowers.... and giant rabbits kept by his son Stefan.

Putbus is famous for its roses, big and multicolor species.

Among the many great scenery, we visited the famous Jasmund National Park, a UNESCO World Heritage Site, and the marvelous white chalk cliffs ( Königsstuhl ).

We also visited the Cape Arkona, and picked up quite a number pieces of flint stones as souvenir.

We have been walking a lot ...through forests and parks, to many places ... seeing many things and taken many pictures. Please follow the pictures in sequence to know more...

By and large, We have a wonderful and unforgettable holiday in Ruegen Island.
