Fishing Village
Rügen

From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia


translated with google translator

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

village.

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.

influx of tourists. In the small harbor cruises around Cape

Arkona can be booked with fishing boats.
