We took the boat trip from Sassnitz to see the cliffs. The advantage is that you have the best views of the cliffs and some interesting explanations (in German).

Drive to Sassnitz and drive along the main road. At one point inside the main road takes a left towards the "Königsstuhl", leave the main road and keep going straight ahead. Drive until the forest starts. Then look for a parking lot nearby. Start walking...More

Being from the UK and having tons of beautiful coastline,to pay to see bog standard beaches and bland fields is ridiculous. I appreciate the german coast is not pretty in most places but this is stupid!

First of all you need to park 2km away and walk or take a shuttle bus. Then, unless you are interested in the museum, which i did not see(dogs not allowed in) but could be interesting, the entrance fee is high for not seeing a...More

These cliffs look more tropical than at the nothernmost island of Germany. The Chalk clifs are beautiful but can only be seen from above at the National Park. There are a few paths down and going down to walk on the beach is worthwhile, but...More

The Kreidefelsen cliffs are a must see in the area. However, you will only get a good view of them from the sea. So I highly recommend taking a boat trip from Sassnitz harbour, which takes about 90 minutes. If you want to visit Königsstuhl,...More

We went on a Sunday afternoon, but the trails were not too crowded. See the review by "nealz" or "dgjohansson" for the explanation of how to get to view the cliffs without entering the expensive documentation center. However, note that as of July 10th, 2016...More

Very beautiful landscape. Make sure you go there on a sunny day as most of the coast will get so white in the sun that you think you are in a fairytale like surrounding. Awesome!

This is only about the Köningstuhl. The rest of the Kreidefelsen I'll leave to others since I only had time to see the Köningstuhl. They sure knows how to get you money - seeing the "stuhl" in a limited amount of time will cost you....More

Hi Bruce, the stairs (approx. 450 wooden steps) are the only way up and down to the beach. The wide enough if you need to take a rest somewhere along the descent / climb. I didn't go by boat to see the cliffs but I could... More
