Rügen Travel Tip:
Castle Ralswiek (Schloss Ralswiek)

Castle Ralswiek (Schloss Ralswiek)
Castle Ralswiek (Schloss Ralswiek) on Rügen

This Neo-Renaissance castle was built in 1893 for Graf Douglas, and is distinguished by its extraordinary exterior. But it is well worth taking a look inside the castle too, as the original decor has largely been preserved. The well-known Art Nouveau painter and architect, Henry van de Velde also contributed to the design.

Restored to its original splendour, the castle re-opened in the spring of 2002 as a fully operational hotel and restaurant. The abundant variety of flora makes the castle grounds one of the island’s horticultural sensations. Standing on the flight of steps, surveying the open-air stage of the famous Störtebeker Festspiele and the great Jasmund bodden landscape, you can’t help feeling like the grand old dukes of yore.
