Site of the last major Slavic pagan temple. The ridge behind the tower is all that remains of the temple fortifications. Wikipedia has more on the Rujani, the Slavic inhabitants of Rügen from the 7th to the 13th century.

Flickr won't let me create any more photo sets without a paid account, and I'm too stingy to pay up, but there are more photos from Rügen in my photostream.
