Fodor's Expert Review Binz
The largest resort town on Rügen's east coast has white villas and a beach promenade. Four kilometers (2½ miles) north of Binz lies the fascist resort of 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. Redevelopment of the site began in 2003. Luxury apartments are available for rent and there is also a youth hostel. Museums and galleries here today do their best to document the history of the site.
