Rügen

Another Easter holiday, another German island! Much like our plans of Easter 2017, the Prince and I decided to head back out to a German island again. While Sylt is considered the ritzy island of Germany, we wanted a new experience this Easter and decided to opt for the island of Rügen. Located in northeast Germany on the Baltic Sea, the island used to be part of East Germany. Rügen is both the largest German island by land mass and number of yearly visitors. Between the resort architecture, charming seaside towns, sandy beaches, chalk cliffs, lighthouses, and the infamous Prora structure, there are so many historical places to visit on Rügen! While the Prince and I only had 24 hours on the island, we were able to tackle all the highlights (with plans on returning soon!).
