At Eye-Level with Rügen’s Nature at Sunset

The evening of Wednesday 21st June 2017 found us in Rügen’s tree tops eating and drinking our way up, up up and along to view the midsummer sunset at the “Natur erbe Zentrum” [natural heritage centre of Rügen]. It was an evening to remember although sadly the sunset was overshadowed by cloud.

One of many relevant quotations along the route : Nature alone is infinitely rich – Johann Wolfgang von Goethe

    That tree top walk looks a bit scary

  2. Perhaps that’s why the wines and beers were strategically placed along the route 😉
