Binz is a coastal resort on Rügen, Germany's largest island in the Baltic Sea. Apart from the 5 mile beach and waterside activities, visitors also get to see a whole bunch of amazing attractions. The most fascinating among them all is the gigantic Prora Resort, another oversize and unfulfilled Nazi dream that was meant to house 20,000 vacationing workers. If you get a car for hire in Binz, you can poke around such attractions and visit other parts of the island.
No doubt the biggest attraction here is the five mile beach, and visitors can spend their entire stay here snoozing and soaking in the sun. But if you can summon enough energy to get a car for rent in Binz and check out the array of wonderful attractions, you will not regret it. Germany turned many of Hitler's mad dreams into reality. One of them is Prora, just north of the city. The very size and length of the longest building in the world is unbelievable. Other must-visit attractions include the long pier and the seaside promenade.
Expand your horizons beyond the 5-mile beach on Binz, and a wonderful island holiday opens up. You can visit the Granitz Hunting Lodge and can see the signature white chalk cliffs and the King's Chair in Jasmund National Park. See the twin lighthouses on Cape Arkona and ride on the Rasender Roland narrow gauge railway.
The best bet for an enjoyable short drive is an exploration up and down the coast. You can take a 25 minute coastal drive on the B196 and L292 to Thiessow, going past Sellin, Baabe and Göhren. If you go the other way along the coast towards Jasmund National Park, you can reach Saasnitz in 20 minutes on the L29.
There are two agencies offering a car rental in Binz for visitors. One is on the Proraer Causeway and the other one is on Dollahner St. But you can expand your options by using an online service to list all agencies that provide delivery and accept pickups here in Binz and anywhere else on the island. Choose the best deal you can find and book your vehicle right now, so that you can be ready to roll the minute you set foot anywhere on Rügen.
