Stroll along the beach approx. 4 km from Binz, or take the little train Prora Express you will come to the Colossus of Prora.
A large construction on the east coast of Rügen in the middle of the mile-long bay between Binz and Sassnitz.
Prora is named after a hill on Rügen and would become a holiday resort for 20.000 guests.
Construction began in 1936, but because of the war, it was never quite finished.
Today it is a historical monument of the Nazi-era in Germany.
Not very nice, but interesting with its history.
Several museums are located at one end of the Colossus.
Later years (2014 – 2017) more and more of it has been renovated to apartments for sale.
It will also host a luxury spa hotel.
