The fishing village of Vitt is on the German island of Ruegen,

specifically, on the peninsula Wittow near Cape Arkona. The

village belongs to the municipality Putgarten. Due to its

location in a canyon on the banks of the cliff, called Liete,

Vitt is not visible from a distance. If you come to the verge

of the gorge, we get a glimpse of the thatched roofs of the


place name

The name derives from the word Vitt Vitte (s) / Witte (Swedish:

vittja = "landing", "Trade and stack space") from. In fact,

Vitt was initially only temporarily inhabited Vitte, where the

captured fish was processed (See also Vitte). The name could

also be from Vit, a common Slavic name (as the local founder),

or witt derived for white.

Since no charter exists, the exact age of the village is not

known. According to the reports of the Danish historian Saxo

Grammaticus but the village is already in the 10th Have heard

century as a fishing and trading port for Slavic Jaromarsburg

at Cape Arkona.

The first mention was made on 25 May 1290, when the prince

Rüganer Witzlaw II the town the right and the freedom of

fishing conceded.

Above the village stands a small chapel Vitter, whose

construction started in 1806 and was finally completed 1816th

It was built because more and more visitors to the shores of

the old church pastor sermons Ludwig Gotthard Kosegarten had

come and found some of the visitors in bad weather no more room

in the fishermen's huts.

The heritage village is very well protected and enjoys a steady

influx of tourists. In the small harbor cruises around Cape

Arkona can be booked with fishing boats.

Vitt is best reached by bike or by train from the Arkona

Putgarten. There must also leave private car as driving is

allowed on the Cape only with special permission.

This is an overview of Germany

Germany? Before the beginning there was Ginnungagap, an empty space of nothingness, filled with pure creative power. (Sort of like the inside of my head.)

And it ends with Ragnarok, the twilight of the Gods. In between is much fighting, betrayal and romance. Just as a good Godly story should be.

Heroes have their own graveyard called Valhalla. Unfortunately we cannot show you a panorama of it at this time, nor of the lovely Valkyries who are its escort service.

Hail Odin, wandering God wielding wisdom and wand! Hail Freya, hail Tyr, hail Thor!

Odin made the many lakes and the fish in them. In his traverses across the lands he caused there to be the Mulheim Bridge in Cologne, as did he make the Mercury fountain, Mercury being of his nature.

But it is to the mighty Thor that the Hammering Man gives service.

Between the time of the Nordic old ones and that of modern Frankfort there may have been a T.Rex or two on the scene. At least some mastodons for sure came through for lunch, then fell into tar pits to become fossils for us to find.

And there we must leave you, O my most pure and holy children.
