Spring hike from Putgarten to the fishing village of Vitt and Arkona lighthouse
The starting and ending point of this beautiful hike is the bus stop at Dorfstraße 33A in Putgarten. From the Aquamaris Strandresidenz it is about 9 km to the start and end point.
The entire route is approx. 8.5 km long. It is easy to walk in about 2 hours and there is a lot to see.
From the starting point head north, then after a few metres turn right onto the mountain trail (SAC T2). Follow this in the direction of Vitt.
Follow the Vitt trail until you turn right onto the SAC-T1 hiking trail. You will reach the fishing village of Vitt. Enjoy the wonderful fish dishes and the beautiful beach.
Just before you reach the coast, turn left and stay on the coastal path until you turn left to Arkona. You can visit the lighthouse. Past the beacon, the path continues along the steep coast (past Gellort, the northernmost starting point on Rügen), on to the Fallada lookout point. At the north shore beach, turn left again onto the Varnkevitzer Weg to Putgarten.
