TRAVEL TIP FOR YOUR FUTURE TRIPS: FROM RÜGEN TO RHEINSBERG – THE NORTH GERMAN AVENUE ROAD
Categories: Tips & Tricks

2,900 kilometres or simply: A trip through Germany, from north to south. The German Avenue Road is just the ticket for anyone who would like to see (almost) the entire country in one trip. Particularly during the summer months, campers can discover countless well-known towns and cities at their most beautiful. PiNCAMP presents the most beautiful stops in the northern part of the route – from Sellin to Rheinsberg in the state of Brandenburg.

The journey begins with peace and quiet, fresh air and wellness, characteristics for which Rügen is famous. You should lace up your hiking boots here before you set off. The majestic chalk cliffs at Cape Arkona in the north east of the island put about 800,000 visitors under their spell every year. You can then rest your weary legs at Kurhaus Binz with its nationally well-known white architecture before getting under way on the following morning. The next major stop is Venice. To be more precise it’s the Venice of the north – Stralsund. A visit to the old town, a UNESCO World Heritage Site, is a must. The famous buildings such as the Artushof, St. Nicholas’ Church or the Commandantenhus are obvious highlights, but an “aimless” wander through the many narrow alleyways is also an experience you won’t forget. Following a short stay in the oval old town of Grammentin (or possibly the zoo, if you have little campers with you) and the harbour town of Demmin, the journey continues to Malchin. As well as the remains of the former city walls, there is also a 300 year old observatory here. Nowadays, people find the location where one of Europe’s biggest telescopes once served the scientific community particularly enchanting because of its architecture.

From Malchin we are then lured to Malchow with its well-known Cistercian nunnery before heading to Röbel with its charming timbered houses, until we reach the final stop on the North German Avenue Road. Rheinsberg mainly became well known throughout Germany by being mentioned in the works of writers Kurt Tucholsky and Theodor Fontane. Campers can follow in the footsteps of literature in the Kurt Tucholsky Literature Museum. Before you go in there’s something else to be amazed at – the Rococo palace on the shores of Lake Grienerick is another architectural highlight of the trip.
