Jasmund National Park is on the German island of Rügen, in the Baltic Sea. It's known for its centuries-old beech forests, and wildlife such as white-tailed eagles. It sits on the Jasmund peninsula, characterized by dramatic white chalk cliffs like the Königsstuhl, or King's Chair. Atop the cliffs, the Königsstuhl National Park Center has exhibits on Rügen’s nature, and an observation deck offers sea views. The most majestic part of the cliffs is the Königsstuhl (English: king's chair) which stands at 118 m (387 ft). One of the most scenic and best known of the chalk outcrops, the Wissower Klinken, collapsed into the Baltic Sea on February 24, 2005, in a landslide caused by spring-thaw weather conditions.
