Rügen in autumn - the other holiday qualities of the Baltic Sea island

The air gets fresher, the wind gets rougher and the colours of Rügen change. That is Rügen in autumn. The rich greens, blues and sandy tones of the summer months are exchanged for warm yellows, bright reds, subtle oranges and earthy tones that wrap Rügen in a soft light in autumn. It is not only the colours that change on Rügen in autumn. It is more that makes Rügen in autumn so very different.

Rügen in autumn - the change of seasons

Rügen in autumn is Rügen in September, Rügen in October and Rügen in November. Each month has its own special charm on Rügen. This applies to outdoor activities as well as to the numerous events that take place on Rügen even in autumn. In autumn, the bathers lose themselves and the exuberant beach life gives way to the rustling of the leaves. Bath towels are replaced by scarves and later by gloves, hats and hoods. Mostly it is hiking boots that are exchanged for sandals and bathing slippers on Rügen in autumn. It gets quieter on Rügen when autumn begins in September. Beach and sea flow into infinity, colours become clearer and warmer, and nature gains in expressiveness. The sun pours down golden autumn rays on flora, fauna and people. Spending time outdoors refreshes, perks you up and stimulates the circulation. Appetites increase on Rügen in autumn, meals are more substantial and the temperature of drinks changes from cold to warm. While it gets rougher outside and a stronger breeze blows, it gets cosier inside. That is Rügen in autumn.

Rügen in September: Enjoying the Baltic Sea island in all its facets

Delicate fog rises. Silvery cobwebs criss-cross the nature and announce the approaching autumn. The air on Rügen in September is still mild. The first leaves fall to the ground and decorate the promenades and tree-lined avenues. Only occasionally do bathers venture into the Baltic Sea to swim a few lengths and refresh themselves. Wellness offers are available all year round. But it is only with the onset of autumn that the treatments unfold more intense moments of relaxation and tranquillity.

But don't worry, there is still plenty going on in Rügen in September. Yoga, Pilates, back school, stretching, Zumba, Aqua Fit, cutter sailing, archery, guided bike tours, running, Nordic walking and of course hiking are the sporting activities that await you on Rügen in September. There is also a lot to experience culturally on Rügen in September: Theatre, cabaret, various events, concerts and live music, weekly markets and farmers' markets, exhibitions and guided tours, jeep safaris and film lectures offer plenty of variety on Rügen in September too.
