Find the UNESCO World Heritage Site Ancient Beech Forests on Jasmund
Humans have long been drawn to the Koenigsstuhl (King‘s Chair). The majestic chalk cliff plays an important role in the local mythology. Today visitors from all over the world are fascinated by this very special place along the chalk coast of Ruegen.
In 1872 the world‘s first national park was established:
Yellowstone National Park in the USA.
To this date, all national parks pursue a common goal: to leave nature to its own devices.
The post-glacial expansion of beech forests in Europe and their ecological dominance represent a unique ecological phenomenon.
For this reason, UNESCO has placed this forest type on its World Heritage list.
Under the heading 'What‘s up?' we have summarized all recent happenings concerning the Visitor's Centre and Jasmund National Park with its Ancient Beech Forest UNESCO Heritage Site.
