Photo tour Rügen

This photo tour takes you to the largest island of German, to Rügen. Surrounded by deep blue Baltic Sea, Rügen is considered the jewel of the Baltic coast. The charismatic Baltic Sea Island offers countless places with wonderful landscapes. Here, a unique mix of rugged cliffs, white bathing beaches, apart seaside resorts, deep forests and characteristic fishing villages are waiting to be photographed by you.

You will spend 5 nights in a selected accommodation in Göhren and discover the best photo locations of Rügen from there. In addition to the well-known highlights such as the pier in Sellin, the Colossus of Prora or the chalk cliffs, we will of course also be away from the touristy areas with our cameras.

Autumn is a particularly beautiful time on the island. Peace and originality return after the summer to Rügen and the island shows itself in a red-yellow colour frenzy. Changing light moods and autumn storms can also provide an exciting spectacle on the lonely beaches and coasts.

On this Rügen photo tour we count, as usual, on local know-how. You are on the road with professional landscape photographer Nicolas Alexander Otto. Alex knows Rügen very well and will take you to the best and most beautiful photo spots on the island. He smoothly adjusts guiding by the respective level of knowledge of the participants, and also likes to share his technical tricks in photography. So not only photographing on location, but also pre- and post-processing is an important part of this photo tour.

Join us on this unforgettable photography trip to Rügen to take your photography to the next level and expand your portfolio with great photos of the Baltic Sea Island.

Travel time October/November

This time of year is well suited to discover the beauty of Rügen. On the one hand, the weather is particularly changeable now, which can make for fantastic light moods, and on the other hand, sunrise and sunset take place at very pleasant times. Temperatures during the day are between 5-10 degrees and it can have strong winds.


Autumn weather in Rügen is often very changeable and you have to be prepared for all eventualities. We therefore recommend breathable functional clothing in the onion principle, which transports sweat to the outside without losing heat and dries quickly.


The tour does not have any special physical requirements. We will take short hikes to the photo locations.

Procedure photo workshop/photo tour

To make sure that you can capture images at the right time with the right light in the golden and blue hours, we will be outside for about 4 hours each, especially at sunrise and sunset times.
