On Slavic traces: From the temple castle on the cape to the fishing village of Vitt via the chalk coast > Archaeological and historical circular walk across the cape, approx. 3 km with archaeologist Dr. Katrin Staude (approx. 2.5/3 hours)

During this guided tour with the archaeologist at the beginning of the hike in the listed village of Vitt, you will learn the background to the presumably Slavic foundation of the picturesque fishing village, which is crouched in the 40 m deep gorge and has thatched houses and a small harbor. With its house marks and the small chapel, which is closely associated with the personality of Kosegarten, Vitt has much to tell. The tour continues along the cliffs where the 12-metre-high rampart of Jaromarsburg, the sacred cult site of the Ranen, still towers. Research results from archaeological excavations and old records by the historian Saxo Grammaticus provide partly consistent findings on ritual acts, the size and nature, but also on the devastating destruction of the temple, which was built in honor of the Svantovit god. Learn more about the ship cemetery between Cape Arkona and Lohme, which has at least 40 submarine structures - including wrecks, stock anchors and remains from the Second World War.
