Sightseeing Tours in Sassnitz

1. Herthaburg

Show sight on map

The Herthaburg near the Stubbenkammer in the Jasmund National Park on the island of Rügen is a hillfort from the time of the Slavic settlement of Rügen from the 8th to the 12th century. The facility was built on an existing ridge on the northeastern shore of Lake Hertha in the Stubnitz. The area enclosed by the rampart and the shore of the lake is about 120 × 60 m and the width of the entire rampart is over 180 m. From the outside, the wall is a maximum of 17 m high in the northeastern area, but only 8 m from the inside. The upper edge of the wall is 136 m above sea level. The open south side of the complex borders on Lake Hertha, which probably also provided access to the castle via a bridge at that time; today's entrance to the interior of the castle was built later. To the northeast, the rampart adjoins a former outer bailey, which can be clearly seen from the path to the Königsstuhl.
