As many other reviewers have mentioned, you may end up feeling disappointed and ripped-off after paying for the entrance to this Visitor centre, so it should be clearly explained what you can expect from visiting the centre - and sadly it's NOT the breathtaking view they make you believe to find here and only here. Here's what happens: 1. You... More

I've expected more after I could see pictures in Google and my book guide. The best view on clifs is rather from see side. Overall it's worth to go aprx. 3-4 km to see white cliffs and waves hitting directly on cliffs.....

Okay, in the old days you could go there by car and see everything for free. Nowadays you need to park the car on a car park (charges apply), you need to walk for approx. 2km through a lush green beech tree forest (belongs already to the National Park Jasmund) and pay an entry fee of around 10 EUR to...

A whopping 8,5€ to enter this place only to find a limited display, a cinema and a bistro taking you down for even more money. Add to this that you'll have to pay for the bus here unless you're walking the 3 km from the parking lot (yes, more costs). In the end, you'll probably have come here to see... More

The centre is very well organized in order to make us a discover. It has a exhibition where there is a choice of 3 audio guides journeys through time: curiosity, adventure and beauty. It is possible to experience many interactive exhibits to test and touch. Exists also a cinema.

I was sure, that there are stairs down to the beach, but it wasnt. All materials was just in german, so we paid entrance 8,5e per person and see just view point for retirees. I was little bit angry, when I realised this... for me it was unbelievable, but It is my mistake, I had to plan it better. So... More

Because of inclement weather we did not get to explore the park in full. There is an extensive old growth Beech forest which is one of the few left in Europe. There is a trail to Koenigsstuhl and the view is spectacular. I would also recommend a boat trip from Sassnitz that goes past the chalk cliffs and Koenigsstuhl. The... More

We were taken here as part of our tour, and personally I would not have bothered. I am lucky enough to live a part of uk that has these views and cliffs local to me, so these are not particularly impressive. The viewpoint is at the top so whilst you can look down to the sea, the best way to... More

The entry is 7.50 Euros per person for which you get access to the museum, movie theater and the nature center. You do also get access to the viewing platform ON TOP OF the Königsstuhl, which sort of defeats the purpose of seeing this attraction. You do have a nice view of the ocean and the Victoria View on the... More

A small entrance fee gave access to the most wonderful of exhibitions giving the natural history of the Park. The view point of the coast line is disappointing - you get much better views by heading down the footpath to Sassnitz
