Rügen is a German island in the Baltic Sea. It’s known for its beaches and white chalk cliffs, like the King's Chair on the Jasmund peninsula. The King's Chair has a viewing platform and visitors center with exhibits on Rügen nature.

 It’s part of Jasmund National Park, known for its primeval beech forests and white-tailed eagles. The nearby seaside resort Sassnitz has the submarine HMS Otus, now a museum.
