Visit the picturesque fishing village of Vitt
Just before Cape Arkona, directly near Putgarten, you will find the picturesque and listed historic fishing village of Vitt. It is only 11 km from the Aquamaris beach residence. It is only a 20-minute drive by car, and if you decide to go on a hike, it will take about 2 hours.
The fishing village of Vitt is definitely worth a visit.
The fishing village was first mentioned in a document in 1290, when Vitt was granted the right to catch fish. Vitt consists of 13 thatched fishermen’s houses, a chapel and, of course, a restaurant called “Zum Goldenen Anker”. Of course, it has its own fish smokehouse. Here you can get freshly caught fish, directly on the beach. There is still one active fisherman in Vitt.
