Germany: Jasmund National Park

Yesterday I got two cards from Germany.

One of them shows the Jasmund National Park on Rügen, the largest German island, in Mecklenburg-Vorpommern. The Jasmund National Park was founded in 1990. It is home to the largest coherent beech forest of the German Baltic Sea Coast and the largest chalk cliffs of Germany. It is the smallest national park in Germany. The beech forests of the Jasmund National Park were added to the UNESCO World Heritage List together with four other Ancient Beech Forests of Germany in 2011. The Primeval Beech Forests of the Carpathians in Slovakia and the Ukraine were added to the list already in 2007.
