Fodor's Review

The heart of this town, 28 km (17 miles) southwest of Binz, is the Circus, a round central plaza dating back to the early 19th century. The immaculate white buildings surrounding the Circus give the city its nickname, "Weisse Stadt" (White City). In summer the blooming roses in front of the houses (once a requirement by the ruling noble family of Putbus) are truly spectacular.

Rasender Roland. From Putbus you can take a ride on the 90-year-old narrow-gauge

steam train, which runs 24 km (16 miles) to Göhren, at the southeast corner of Rügen. Trains leave hourly from Göhren to Binz and every two hours from Binz to Putbus; the ride takes 70 minutes one way. Binzer Str. 12, 18581. 038301/8010. www.rasender-roland.de. €20 day ticket. Apr.–Oct., daily 7:48 am–7:46 pm with bi-hourly departures from Putbus. Nov.–Mar., daily 7:48 am–5:44 pm with departures every 2 hrs.
