Sassnitz 2014

Well I am doing pretty good at keep these posts about a year behind...Not exactly what I had planned, but hopefully I will catch up. So just over a year ago we went up to Sassnitz and Jasmund National Park for a long weekend. We had some vacation time to use up so we headed up to the coast since we hadn't yet. When looking for places to go explore along the Baltic coast I found the chalk cliffs of Jasmund National Park and that sounded fun so off we went! This will be a lot of photos of our walks along the cliffs and beaches.


First views of the pedestrian bride that goes from the docks to the town on the hill.


We arrived at lunchtime and it was sunny out so we ate sandwiches while waiting to check in


We wandered around town that afternoon.




The waterfront was very nice to walk along 



 
There were lots of old foundations and stuff

 
It was chilly,but sunny and beautiful


 
Then suddenly it was crazy foggy! It was clear one minute, then the next you couldn't see very far from the fog. It kept coming and going and was lots of fun to walk along the shore in. 














 
The start/end of the path back to town


 
There was a lighthouse way out in the water so after exploring the beach we headed out there. 

 
There is snow on the steps! And some patches along the walkway out there. 

 
Looking back to town


 
The next day we got up and went to explore the woods at the top of the cliffs. Sassnitz was a strange little town. Lots of run down buildings that were abandoned, then some nice buildings with businesses and restaurants. An odd combination and I know we were not there during peak tourist times but it felt really dead. 


 
It was overcast and cool, but a lovely walk in the woods. 




 
From above you can see the lighter patches in the water. 






 
There was an overlook where you could walk out on this little walkway and look down. Fun! The photo below is looking down from that point. 









 
The pedestrian bridge at night

 
The last day we got up and it was much clearer, but still chilly. We walked along the top of the cliffs again through the woods, but then went down and explored the beaches as well. 







 
There were a few places along the top of the cliff with stair access to the beach













 
And back to town

 
The lighthouse we walked out to the first night



And finally heading home in the evening. It was a gorgeous long weekend!
