Only when you pass the Mönchgut Gate, you are also on the Mönchgut.
The village of Baabe is located on the Mönchgraben, the historical border that separates the Mönchgut peninsula from the rest of the Island of Rügen, between the Baltic Sea and the Baaber Beek (connecting ditch between Lake Sellin and Having) and the forests of the Baaber Heide. The federal road 196 and the narrow-gauge railroad Rasender Roland pass through Baabe. The so-called Mönchgut Gate spans the B 196 at the level of the Mönchgraben. From the gate, built in 2002, farmer's wife, fisherman, monk and knight greet every guest. They are part of the history of this area, shaped culture and tradition.
