Pencil in a visit to the chalk cliffs during your tour of Germany
A tour of Germany truly has something for everyone. Whether you're into architecture, history, local cuisine or the performing arts, there's no lack of appealing destinations. One aspect of Germany that gets less attention is its beautiful natural landscape, something that is at its best in Jasmund National Park.
Located in the northeast corner of the country, Jasmund is the smallest national park in Germany, but what it lacks in size it makes up for in natural beauty. In particular,Jasmund has become famous for its impressive chalk cliffs that rise hundreds of feet above the Baltic Sea below.
All of the park's chalk cliffs are sure to stand out, but there is one section that is particularly famous. If you want the perfect photo opportunity, head to the Königsstuhl. German for "king's chair," Königsstuhl, stands nearly 400 feet above the water but it is not the sheer height that makes it the most impressive. The bright white cliffs jut out from lush, green vegetation, creating a unique contrast you're unlikely to find elsewhere.
Jasmund National Park has more to offer than the chalk cliffs. Most notably, it is home to centuries-old beech forests, and with hiking trails and cycling routes it can be the perfect bit of adventure for your tour of Germany.
