How to get there

Transport
Car
Access
Short walk

From Stralsund take B96 to Bergen, in Bergen left towards Schaprode. Pass the first exit to Ralswiek and take the second exit towards Ralswiek. Drive to a crossing, don't drive right to Ralswiek but left towards Rappin. In Rappin drive through the village until you see signs to the camping ground. Turn right onto a paved path. Park either at the camping ground. This costs a parking fee and you have to walk a bit and down the hill for 50m as well. Or pass the camping ground and park next to a small meadow for free, cross it to get to the water.
