Monuments and Sights, Historical Buildings

In the west of the Rügen island Ummanz you will find the still originally preserved fishing village Freesenort. The small village with its four cane-roofed houses is a listed building. From there you have a fantastic view to Stralsund and Hiddensee.

Freesenort is mentioned for the first time in 1319 under "Vresenort". Typical for the village is the still existing hall house of the sugar loaf style, the so-called "Hasenburg". The other cross-floor houses date back to the 19th century. In Freesenort you will find peace, seclusion, solitude. Here you can switch off, leave everyday life behind and listen to the flora and fauna with all your senses. Due to the national park status of the Vorpommersche Boddenlandschaft, to which also the Rügen island Ummanz belongs, you will find rare bird species such as red-breasted merganser, shelduck, storm and herring gulls as well as lots of common terns. The proverb " Where fox and hare say good night to each other" finds its confirmation here.
