In addition to bathing enjoyment, the Baltic Sea Resort of Binz also has diverse cultural offerings: in the galleries and studios of the Binzer Kunstmeile (the mile of art) you can watch artists at work; the Ostseebad Binz museum shows the beginnings of the Binz beach life; the Jagdschloß Granitz hunting lodge is worth a sightseeing trip as is Prora, the northern district of Binz with its museum mile and the nature center “Naturerbe-Zentrum Rügen” in which interactive exhibitions are offered as well as a treetop path and tours and information on the surrounding natural landscape.
Around the Baltic Sea Resort of Binz, there are also some worthwhile destinations for Baltic Sea vacationers. Southeast from Binz toward the neighboring Baltic Sea Resort of Sellin extends the largest contiguous forest area in northern Germany, the Granitz. In the center of this area is the 107 meter high Tempelberg and the remarkable Granitz hunting lodge; a broad network of trails also offers ideal conditions for extensive hiking and cycling in the forest area.
About 700 meters west of the Binz Baltic Sea beach you can find Schmachter See, a large 135-hectare inland lake surrounded by reeds. The lakeside walkway was built in 2003 and redesigned with a “park of the senses”. In addition, a signposted hiking trail leads around the lake.
North of the Baltic Sea Resort of Binz between Prora and Mukran is another popular destination: the flint fields in the 40-hectare large Schmale Heide nature reserve. Here, parallel to the Baltic coast, run fourteen 2 km long rock walls one after another that mainly consist of flint stone. Scattered vegetation from trees, shrubs, lichens and heather grows between the stones.
