CHALK CHALK - impressive cliffs with healing powers

Mecklenburg-Vorpommern is proud of its «white gold», the coast, as this is also how the Rügen healing chalk is referred to. Finely ground, a snow-white powder from calcium carbonate, which can relieve pain, purifies the skin, warms the body, purges and all at the same time still conjures up a delicate skin.

Grown 70 million years ago, it appears impressively in the form of the chalk cliff between Sassnitz and the Königsstuhl. It is the only organically grown and mineralised sedimentary rock on earth. The chalk has a healing effect on rheumatic and inflammatory diseases of the joints and skin diseases. Chalk baths serve to improve the general condition. As early as 1910, well-to-do guests used the Rügen healing chalk in the Sassnitz bathhouse for cures.
