Fodor's Review

The largest resort town on Rügen's east coast, it has white villas and a beach promenade.

Four kilometers (2½ mi) north of Binz are five concrete quarters of Bad Prora, where the Nazis once planned to provide vacation quarters for up to 20,000 German workers. The complex was never used, except by the East German army. Museums and galleries here today include one that documents the history of the site.

Jagdschloss Granitz. Standing on the highest point of East Rügen is the Jagdschloss Granitz, a hunting lodge built in 1836. It offers a splendid view in all directions from its lookout tower and has an excellent hunting exhibit. 2 km (1 mile) south of Binz, Jagdschloß Granitz, 186091. 038393/663–814. €3. May–Sept., daily 9–6; Oct.–Apr., Tues.–Sun. 10–4.
