Welcome to Kap Arkona


A few metres east of the lighthouses is the Burgwall, a complex that harbours the remains of the Tempelburg, a Slavic temple and fortress. The castle was taken over by the Danes in 1168, paving the way for the Christianisation of Rügen.

Most people sail around the cape (without landing) on boat tours run by Adler-Schiffe.
