Travelling by car in Ruegen allowed us to stay in out-of-the-way, less costly Putbus. Hotel Nautilus is also "out of the way", so much so that it's very private and absolutely delightful. Seems many travelers simply come for the quirky restaurant designed like a submarine with artwork resembling "20,000 Leagues under the Sea" as seen on their website. That's well and good, and our meal was very enjoyable, but these folks are missing the best parts of the experience. We made Putbus our home base for further exploration of the island, and this was very conveniently done staying in this hotel. Our immaculate room in the main building was very large by German standards, quite well equipped, attractive, extremely comfortable and favorably priced. Because the hotel offered that rare commodity that we Americans call "screens", we threw open the windows at night after our days of exploration and were lulled by the gentle breezes wafting in off the water. It was nature at its finest without any hardship. I even heard my first cuckoos and they weren't coming from clocks. We weren't enthralled with the busload of overnight tourists who swarmed the dining room like locusts one evening, but we planned around them and they'd departed by the next morning. Although we saw a lot, we'd love to explore Ruegen again and relish another peace-infused weekend. Although we're not the type to repeat experiences when there are so many new places to visit, we'd definitely return to Hotel Nautilus.
