Hunting Lodge (Jagdschloss Granitz)
Hunting Lodge (Jagdschloss Granitz)

The hunting lodge is located atop the 106-m Tempelberg in the extensive Granitz beech forest, very close to the resort of Binz. From 1837 - 1851, during the flowering of Classicism, Wilhelm Malte I, the prince of Putbus, had the lodge built under the direction of the famous Berlin architect Johann Gottfried Steinmeyer.

The hunting lodge served the nobles of nearby Putbus primarily as a guest house. Beginning in 1900 the family allowed visitors paying a fee to tour the castle. Since its restoration the lodge has become one of the most visited day-trip destinations on the island. The tower 144 metres above the sea affords a panoramic view of the uniquely beautiful Rügen landscape.

Hours: May - September: daily 9 am - 6 pm. October - April: Tuesday - Sunday 10 am - 4 pm.
