Rügen at the Baltic Sea

Rügen is Germany’s largest island, off the northern Baltic Sea coast. It’s a major tourist destination, but it was late in the year and not during school holidays, so it was not crowded. We stayed in the seaside village of Binz for a few days, and visited various other towns by bicycle. Straw-thatched houses are typical for northern Germany. The most iconic view of Rügen is probably the sea bridge at Seddin. They also have a steam train there, called Rasender Roland (racing Roland) but it’s really quite slow.
