Monuments and Sights

The boulder "Siebenschneiderstein" at Cape Arkona.

At Gellort near Kap Arkona, the northern tip of Rügen, is the approximately 165-ton Siebenschneiderstein, also known as Söbenschniedersteen in Low German. With a volume of 61 cubic meters it is the fourth largest erratic boulder of Rügen. The largest erratic boulder on Rügen is the stone giant "Buhskam" near Göhren described in this list with a weight of 1600 tons and a volume of about 600 cubic meters. How the boulder got its name "Siebenschneiderstein" can only be guessed today: Seven tailors would have found room on the large stone."
