Jasmund National Park
White Cliffs on the island of Rügen at Jasmund National Park

The Jasmund National Park is a nature reserve in the northeast of Rügen island. It is famous for the largest chalk cliffs of Germany, the so called Königsstuhl (king's chair). These cliffs are up to 161 m high above the Baltic Sea. This landscape was formed during the ice age, when mile high glaciers tore massive blocks of chalk from under the earth’s surface and propelled them into vertical positions. Strata of other materials dating back to the same prehistoric era are found pressed between the chalk blocks. The undisturbed beech forests behind the cliffs are also part of the national park.
