Exhibition on the prehistory/early history of Rügen, as well as town history of Bergen auf Rügen
The town museum Bergen auf Rügen is located in one of the baroque collegiate buildings in the monastery courtyard and invites both young and old visitors to a historical excursion. The first floor is dedicated to the prehistory and early history of Rügen. The tour takes visitors from the Stone Age megalithic graves, to the metal remains of the Bronze Age, to the Slavic temple castle of Arkona. On the upper floor, selected examples illuminate the town history of Bergen, which is inseparably linked to the foundation of the nunnery in 1193 by the Slavic prince Jaromar I. Among the former medieval convent and church treasures were a richly embroidered linen cloth with its original colored silk threads and a magnificent gilded chalice, a replica of which enriches the permanent exhibition. Guided tours are available by appointment.
