The stone beach of Ruschvitz invites to a hike over boulders along low steep banks, where there are many interesting pounds to discover, for example shells, fossilized sea urchins or thunderbolts. The impressive erratic blocks from the Ice Age are a popular subject for painters and photographers.
As early as 1806, Caspar David Friedrich found himself surrounded by thousands of stones on the beach of Ruschvitz during a trip to Rügen. Nearby, in the northwest of the Jasmund peninsula, on the stone beach of Ruschvitz is one of the largest erratic blocks of Rügen: "Svantekas". The name comes from the Old Slavic and means something like: "holy stone". With a size of about 18 cubic meters, it testifies to the considerable power of the ice age.
