“Amazing historic site”

KdF - Koloss von Ruegen
Reviewed 1 July 2014

Prora is such a contrast to the beautiful surrounding beach resorts. It's been 70 years, and at Prora you can to some degree still experience what it was like to live in Nazi Germany. This is not a stale museum, this is more or less untouched history. Like they just left it there and never turned back. Don't miss it.

Feel we have just visited this piece of history at a time of change. The whole complex feels like the developers are in changing it to luxury apartments. The complex is huge and you get very little feel it is there from the beach or road. Very enjoyable two hours watching history being rebuilt to something future holiday makers will enjoy. The museum is superb with history, geology, technology and in the actual buildings.

The building monstrums were built in the Nazi era for holiday/recreational purposes but were never used for that. Historical document, with some steps taken in recent years to use some parts of the buildings as youth hostel and for exhibitions. As I was on a bike tour on the island of Rügen, I was biking around the complex -- given its extension, perhaps this is the best way to get it known.

Just imagine the time back into 1942 when they started to build this...
Scarry! But nevertheless a great document in history. At least they start now to re-use the building.
