The vastness of the Great Jasmund Bodden, the picturesque sunrises and sunsets, the glassy sea at calm and the spray driven by the storm, the reed belts and forests around the Bodden have always attracted nature lovers and romantics. In many drawings and paintings of the romantics these representations can be found.
The Small and the Large Jasmund Bodden belong to the North Ruegen waters. The Bodden water is hardly salty and is considered a true angler's paradise. Both waters are popular with locals and tourists for swimming and sailing. With an area of about 60 square kilometers, the Great Jasmund Bodden is one of the largest Bodden waters in the Baltic Sea. Around the Small Jasmund Bodden leads a very versatile bicycle tour.
The proximity to the water was also sought by Caspar David Friedrich, who processed the breathtaking impressions in his drawings and paintings.
