Beauty meets nature—where have you Binz all my life?

If you book a Binz vacation rental near Jasmund National Park, a space known for its forests and towering chalk cliffs, explore the hiking and biking trails, or stop by the visitor's center to sign up for a free guided walk.

Fly high through the forest like an eagle

If you have thrill seekers staying in your Binz vacation rental, make sure you visit the Natural Heritage Center Rugen in Prora. Set in the middle of a forest, the center offers treetop obstacle courses and the Eagle's Nest, a 130-foot-tall viewing platform with sweeping views of the island and sea. History buffs can tour Jagdschloss Granitz, a grand, hilltop hunting lodge and castle built in 1723. You can also visit the nearby Dokumentationszentrum Prora, a former Nazi resort that now features hiking trails, restaurants, hotels, and a museum chronicling the history of the complex.

Wet and warm, sunny and snowy: weather runs the gamut

Winters are dry and cold, with temperatures fluctuating between freezing and below freezing. It can also snow from November through April, but the island rarely gets slammed. For instance, January and February see the most snow, but even then, it's only between 1 to 3 inches. Summers are warm but comfortable, with temperatures in the high 70s and plenty of sunshine. July is the wettest month, but the town only gets about 24 inches of rain each year. Spring and autumn both feature similar conditions with highs in the low 50s and 60s.

From bustling beaches to beech trees, Binz brings it

The town of Binz lies on the island's east coast, between a bay and the lake of Schmachter See. Rolling hills surround the town to the south and east, but the island's mammoth chalk cliffs, which climb up to 525 feet in some spots, steal the scenery. A beech forest lies behind the cliffs, while pines and chestnut trees dot the white sand beaches along the coast. The watery landscape makes the island a popular spot for a variety of birds, including white-tailed eagles, kingfishers, common house martins, and peregrine falcons.
